The Green Bay Packers will hold their final open practice of their 2014 training camp today, which means that it's almost time for the team to trim the roster down to 53 players from 75. Several players who will be on the 53 spoke with the media on Tuesday, and one who's still on the bubble did as well.

We have links to several of these interviews as well as a look at which Packer has performed the best at his position through the preseason in today's curds, and stay tuned for our practice thread around 10 AM Central.
