Packers News: OTA Begin on Monday

New, comments

 - The organized team activities (OTAs) begin on Monday, May 17th and run through June 17. I'm assuming Day 1 just involves the players showing up at Lambeau Field and having meetings. Many players have been in Green Bay and working out since the start of the offseason program in March. Other players have arrived later. LG Daryn Colledge didn't travel to Green Bay until after he signed his one-year contract last week.

 - I expect everyone will attend the OTAs except the remaining unsigned free agents: DE Johnny Jolly, CB Tramon Williams, and SS Atari Bigby. They have until June 1 to accept the original contract tendered back in March, and it's possible they'd take a pay cut if they didn't sign by then. Their starting jobs should be safe, but Jolly's negotiations are certainly impacted by his May 21st trial date. If I had to pick one player in danger of losing his starting job, I'd pick Bigby. Brian Carriveau has a good rundown of who could play on the first team defense if it's not Bigby. My guess it would be everyone's favorite player (I'm kidding): CB/S Jarrett Bush

 - In his most recent rehab video, CB Al Harris said he'll be traveling to Green Bay in a week or two. I'd be stunned if he actually took part in the team activities. In the video, his current goal is to get the strength back in his injured left leg.
