It's Thursday, which means you folks catching up on sports news from the office have just 16 more hours to go before that sweet, sweet weekend. Well, to help smooth over the home stretch, we've collected all the best Green Bay Packers stories from around the web.
First up, ESPN's Rob Demovsky assigns a letter grade to the team's offseason moves and breaks down best and riskiest decisions.
The Packers have garnered plenty of praise for re-signing their top two free agents, wide receiver Randall Cobb and offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga. However, Demovsky also highlights the team's top draft choices, cornerbacks Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins, as critical decisions given the departures of Tramon Williams and Davon House. Overall, he felt Green Bay earned an "A" for their offseason, and it's difficult to argue otherwise.
With Brett Favre's return to Lambeau nearing, the team has begun putting together a highlight special of the quarterback's 16 years in Green Bay. The final product will make its debut prior to Favre's induction into the Packers Hall of Fame next month.
The expansion of the Packers footprint in the City of Green Bay continues, as more buildings are demolished around Lambeau Field. The team hasn't announced its plans for the newly cleared property, but that news is expected to surface sometime later in the summer.
While former-Chicago Bears quarterback Matt Blanchard faces long odds to make the Packers' final roster, his performance during OTAs left most with the impression that he is currently far ahead of rookie Brett Hundley. While Hundley likely has a roster spot reserved due to his draft status and considerable potential, it does seem as though Blanchard might have NFL talent after all. That's bad news for the Bears, who probably could use another quality passer and had him right under their nose.
