Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for June 30, 2014

New, comments

The dead zone of the NFL offseason continues on with discussions about young Packers Carl Bradford, Don Barclay, and Davon House.

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Monday morning to all you Green Bay Packers fans out there. The start of the work week means we're back with cheese curds, and it also means that we'll resume our roster countdown and the Top Plays countdown that we started a week ago. We'll be up to play number 5 and players 40-31 later today.

Until then, we've got pieces on a number of Packers in today's, both young and old. In one case, we look at a rookie whose short arms caused him to drop somewhat in the draft. In another, we find an undrafted player whose contributions over the past two seasons at multiple positions have made him an invaluable piece on offense.

Click around and we'll see you back here later this morning for the continuations of our countdowns!

Carl Bradford aims to make other teams regret not drafting him | JSOnline
Too short? Short arms? Bradford is committed to making sure those qualities won't hinder him in the NFL.

Don Barclay's value to Packers continues to rise | JSOnline
It's not hard to imagine Barclay being the primary backup at three positions: both guard spots and right tackle.

Here's Rob Demovsky's take on the offensive depth chart at this point. Just a reminder: we'll have our roster predictions starting next Monday.

House waits his turn in crowded cornerbacks room | Packersnews.com
Davon House may end up playing primarily on special teams again this year if he can't find a way to force the coaching staff to get him on the field ahead of one of the other corners.

Packers Cornerback Trio Enters Contract Season, Futures Uncertain | Cheesehead TV
I expect Tramon Williams to play well again this season and for the Packers to make an effort to retain him after the season. I'm not feeling confident about Jarrett Bush getting another chance in Green Bay beyond this season, though.
