Welcome to the third edition of Cheese Curds of this short holiday week. With many of us being off work for the Fourth of July, we'll try to pack as much content into the next two days as we can and enjoy the long weekend with friends and family, and we encourage you to do the same.

That means that we'll wrap up our 90-man roster ranking with the teens today and the top ten on Thursday, and we'll try to have our top plays countdown finished off by tomorrow as well (even if the #1 play is a foregone conclusion at this point).

In any case, today's curds feature a pair of the Packers' offensive stars, as well as some strange news from around the NFL regarding injured and traded linebackers. Enjoy!
