Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for August 6, 2014

Brian Bahr

The progress of rookie Davante Adams and the excellent 2013 season posted by Jordy Nelson are among the major topics in today's curds.

With the Green Bay Packers' preseason schedule opening up just a few short days from now, today's practice will be the last open session of the week. The team will have an off day on Thursday and will hold a closed practice on Friday afternoon before traveling to Tennessee to play the Titans on Saturday evening.

Therefore, we'll be paying close attention to the results of today's practice session to get a feel for how the depth chart will line up on Saturday. Stay tuned as we recap the events of the day as practice begins at 11:45 AM Central.

In the meantime, enjoy today's curds, which feature a close look at the Packers' wide receivers.

This is an article I stumbled upon while researching Jordy Nelson's game a bit yesterday, and it makes the case that he is an even better wide receiver than his statistics indicated in 2013. It's pretty numbers-heavy, so you can't say I didn't warn you, but it's definitely worth a read.
