As of this morning, the Green Bay Packers' offseason workout program is officially open for business. Many players have made their way to the team facilities to begin their strength and conditioning work, which will be followed by positional workouts. Of course, the Packers pay a great deal of money to ensure that their veterans are present for these workouts.
Several Packers confirmed on Twitter over the past few days that they are back in Green Bay for workouts. Among them are running backs Eddie Lacy and DuJuan Harris:
back in Green Bay...I almost forgot where I lived— Eddie Lacy (@Lil_Eazy_Ana_42) April 21, 2014
Back in ol GB and I didn't need a jacket after all. It feels nice out tonight— DuJuan Harris (@Ol_sLy_Foxx) April 21, 2014
Second-year pro and first-time Packer linebacker Chase Thomas is getting excited to be a part of the organization:
T.J. Lang is ready to get to work as well...

As is tight end Brandon Bostick:
Great First Day Back With The Squad! #GoPack!— Brandon Bostick (@Bostick11) April 22, 2014
Two players who are not allowed on the field yet are quarterback Matt Flynn and inside linebacker Jamari Lattimore. As Brian Carriveau of Cheesehead TV notes, neither has signed his contract yet, Flynn's an unrestricted free agent deal and Lattimore's a restricted free agent tender. Carriveau does speculate, however, that both may simply be waiting to sign until they arrive at team facilities today.
Whatever the case may be, it is officially time to begin the quest for 14, and that quest begins in the weight room.
