Sunday's link dump is a must-read if you are a Packers shareholder who has moved in the past few years.

John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

On this gorgeous Sunday morning (at least it's gorgeous here in Ohio!) we take a look through a variety of links from the past few days. We've got news for shareholders, several pieces on draft prospects, and even a bit of news on a legendary former Green Bay Packer.

Gregg doesn't back down from Parkinson's |
Best wishes to Hall of Famer Forrest Gregg. As someone who has a close relative with the early stages of Parkinson's, I can sympathize with what he's going through. Here's hoping his attitude will inspire others living with the condition to continue to stay strong.

NFL contract rules could help Matt Barkley, other QBs get drafted in first round - Yahoo! Sports
This is fascinating, teams may be more likely to trade up into the first round to grab a QB since they'll get an extra year on the player's rookie contract. That's good news for teams like Green Bay who may be looking to move back.

Packers Want to Hear from "Lost" Shareholders - WBAY
If you've changed your address recently, you should probably get on this right away.

NFL draft prospect Patton has gift of gab, grab -
I didn't realize Patton was such a trash-talker. Dunne says "he wants to be the next Chad Johnson. Not Chad Ochocinco, he assures. Chad Johnson." I could live with that.

If Ted doesn't get a tight end early, I'd love to see this guy in Green and Gold.

So You Drafted A Badger? Ricky Wagner Edition. - Bucky's 5th Quarter
I'd be okay drafting Wagner late and trying to improve his technique. He just doesn't seem like an NFL starer any more.

Enjoy your Sunday!
