Welcome to Tuesday, June 3rd, which marks the start of the Green Bay Packers' second set of Organized Team Activities for the 2014 offseason. Today's Packers practice is open to the public again, so get on down to Ray Nitschke Field by 11:30 AM Central if you're in the area. APC's Aron Yohannes will be on hand again today to provide his practice notebook.

In the meantime, let's discuss some Packers news. Not surprisingly, we're still hung up on the contract status of wide receivers Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, and in this case, no news is not necessarily good news (though it's not bad news either). We have that and more in today's curds below.

Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb will lead reshaped receiving group for Packers
OMG, Ted, just sign one of these guys to a contract extension already, am I right?

Randall Cobb: No updates on contract extension with Green Bay Packers | FOX Sports Wisconsin
Oh. Well, my bet is still that Jordy Nelson gets his new deal first anyway, then Cobb gets his extension, but that's just a gut feeling. This shouldn't be anything to worry about unless March arrives and Cobb hits the open market.

RB coach Sam Gash on Eddie Lacy: "I really don’t see a ceiling on him at all because he has some of the gifts of the greats. He's big. He's fast. He's athletic. He has good hands. He wants to work."

Something to prove | ESPN Wisconsin
The fun part of this article is Mike McCarthy's response when B.J. Raji asked him if the Packers would sign any other free agents.

Johnny Manziel does not have time for you -
Sooner or later, Johnny Football will have to talk to the media. Apparently, the NFLPA Rookie Premiere was not that time, even though it's an event for the media. I don't understand.

Dan Marino joins NFL concussion lawsuit -
Hmm. Marino is probably the biggest name to join the suit. It seems like odd timing, though, jumping in at this point.
