Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for July 1, 2015

The incumbent starter at inside linebacker expects much more from himself this season.

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

As the calendar clicks over to July, the Green Bay Packers continue to work on their own as they await the start of training camp. One Packer in particular is looking to expand on his performance at the end of last season and take hold of a leadership position on the defense.

Meanwhile, the question remains about whether or not the team should continue to hold more non-football events at Lambeau Field. In 2016, however, the only non-Packers-related event scheduled is a football game, between the Wisconsin Badgers and LSU Tigers during the first week of the college football season.

Check out that and much more in today's curds below.
