A few Packers are feeling more comfortable this offseason than last, and we now know the date of the team's annual Family Night practice.

The Green Bay Packers will open up their 2015 Training Camp on June 30th, but we now know when the team will take the field in Lambeau Field for the first time this year. This morning, the Packers announced details for the team's annual Family Night, which will feature a full practice session at Lambeau and numerous fan-focused activities.

Along with that announcement, we have some more interviews from this week in OTAs. Several players are relaxed this year compared to in 2014, and for a variety of different reasons. Whether contract negotiations are over, rookie seasons are in the rear-view mirror, or they now have a year of experience in Green Bay, this season should be good to many of these players.
