On Monday, the media covering the Green Bay Packers got their first chance to speak to some of the team's players since the end of the season back in January. Not surprisingly, veterans like Mike Daniels, Randall Cobb, and a few others were available to give their thoughts on how the season wrapped up and how they are looking forward to getting back to work.
As far as the 2015 season goes, the NFL will announce the regular season schedule at 7 PM Central time tonight, and we'll have coverage of that when it is released. Pull up those flight and hotel websites at about 6:55 if you're coming in from out of town!
