Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for July 3, 2014

Won't anybody sign this poor guy? - Leon Halip

A former Packer wants a chance to prove he's not too old to play, while a young Packer will face an uphill climb to make the team despite earning a roster spot a year ago.

On the eve of a long weekend and the celebration of our nation's independence, we welcome you back to APC, where we will finish off a pair of countdowns today. We'll wrap up both the Top 10 Plays of 2013 with the top two plays, as well as our ranking of the Packers' 90-man roster with the players ranked in the top 10.

But before we get to the countdowns, here's what's going on around the Packers blogs and the NFL today.

The former Packers nose tackle desperately wants another Super Bowl ring, and he definitely thinks he can still play and be helpful for an NFL team.

Banjo ready to prove himself all over again | Packersnews
And he'll have to, as he's behind Morgan Burnett, Micah Hyde, and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix at safety on the depth chart, and quite possibly Sean Richardson as well.

Time to step up: Green Bay Packers DE Datone Jones - ESPN
Great quote here from Jones on what he needs to work on this year: "I came into the NFL trying to finesse offensive linemen, and that's not going to work."

Russell Wilson, J.J. Watt among most underpaid players - NFL - ESPN
It's an Insider article, so apologies if you don't have a subscription, but Eddie Lacy makes the list at #10, with a value of $7.9 million compared to his 2013 salary cap hit of $600,000.

Jordan Cameron alters Twitter bio after Graham case - NFL.com
Oh Darren Rovell. Of course he'd be the one to notice that Jordan Cameron now calls himself a "pass catcher" instead of a "tight end".

NFL bans the coolest player facemasks - SBNation.com
Interesting - I was not aware that Ravens DT Chris Canty chose his crazy facemask because of a medical condition.
