The Green Bay Packers' three-day rookie minicamp has concluded, meaning Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy have seen three days of rookie tryouts, and it's now decision time. Most eyes were on the Packers' draft picks during the minicamp, but those players all signed before the camp and are going to be on the 90-man roster heading into training camp. They weren't competing for roster spots.

A total of 26 tryout players were competing for spots, and the cut is going to be brutal. The Packers currently have 86 players listed on their roster, meaning the team can only sign a maximum of four of the players who participated at the camp.

Mike McCarthy said that the team could sign tryout players "in the next day or so". As many as four players will have a team to start training camp on, and at least 22 are going to get a phone call to tell them that they didn't make it. Based on what McCarthy had to say, we could have some news on new signings to report to you tomorrow.
