In an unfortunate turn of events, the Green Bay Packers joined their division foes this week in preparations for the 2015 NFL Draft and other offseason events. The Packers haven't had much offseason traction yet compared to the others besides quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt having a request from St. Louis to join their staff (which was denied by Green Bay).
Meanwhile, there's been plenty of coaching action just south of Wisconsin in Chicago, while Minnesota and Detroit have already started diving pretty heavily into prospects for the draft.
Below are links with the latest news from around the division:
Former defensive end Kenechi Udez has returned to USC -- his alma-mater -- to join the strength and condition crew.

Minnesota's first draft choice, Tommy Mason, passed away this week at 75 years-old.
