It's Tuesday, which means we're one day closer to Brett Favre's big day. However, Favre isn't the only big thing coming down the pipeline as far as the Green Bay Packers are concerned. A future matchup in a foreign country appears close to becoming official while Green Bay's star running back is flying up fantasy draft boards.
Without further delay, here are the cheese curds.
The Packers were going to play a game in London eventually. However, fans of the green and gold don't need to worry about losing a home game. The Jaguars will "host" Green Bay at Wembley Stadium.
In the eyes of the experts, Eddie Lacy is creeping further and further up the fantasy rankings. In this latest mock, the Packers' battering ram comes off the board second overall, one pick after Adrian Peterson.
Somehow, Aaron Rodgers wasn't No. 1.*
It's great to hear that Buccaneers cornerback C.J. Wilson is on the path to recovery after a fireworks mishap cost him two of his fingers. Still, as a reminder, leave explosives to the professionals.
By now, most of you have heard about Dez Bryant's threats to skip training camp, the preseason and even regular season games if he doesn't receive a long-term extension. This comes amid an NFLPA investigation that the Cowboys have colluded with the Broncos to keep the cost down for their star receivers. While the teams aren't going to meet Bryant and Demaryius Thomas' demands (read: Calvin Johnson money), the receivers are still going to cost plenty of cash.
