Good morning Green Bay Packers fans, and welcome to Monday. We have a big day ready for you today, as we kick off our most detailed look at the Packers' 90-man roster, featuring our predictions for the 53 players who will make it onto the active roster at the end of training camp. Today we'll start off with the quarterbacks, and we'll address one position each weekday over the next few weeks.

Before we get to that, however, it's time for some curds. The word of the day is "Jones", as in Datone and Brad. Both of these players are looking to recapture success after disappointing seasons a year ago. Enjoy today's links and head back here in a bit as we kick off our roster preview.
