Packers News: Practices Begin, Unsigned Free Agents, and May Rankings

 - OTAs began for the Green Bay Packers but on Monday it was just a day of physicals and meetings. Tuesday is the first day of practice. Some of it might be open to public. I expect it's just the players practicing without pads. The only good information is finding out where the rookies are lining up and who's playing with the first team units. It's not quite as important as last season when the defense was learning about the new 3-4 scheme.

 - Who's playing with the first team has a little more importance since there still is no sign of the unsigned restricted free agents: DE Johnny Jolly, CB Tramon Williams, and SS Atari Bigby. They've got until June 1st and then it's their turn to blink. 

 - At least this didn't appear on the cover of SI. Peter King writes that the best NFL team this May is the Green Bay Packers. I'm not quite that optimistic though I'd be shocked if the Packers miss the playoffs in 2010.
