Happy Tuesday, Packers fans. With the first practice of the week behind us, we take a look back at the returning players, including Morgan Burnett and Eddie Lacy. The rookie running backs get some attention, as do kick returns and Randall Cobb's role in that aspect of the game. Finally, we kick off a little speculation about a certain embattled quarterback by looking at some crazy news that broke last night. On to the links!
