The Green Bay Packers finally begin their 2015 Training Camp this Wednesday, as players report for physicals before the first practice on Thursday. Of course, the week really kicks off on Tuesday for shareholders, as the team will hold its annual meeting tomorrow morning at Lambeau Field.
We're in final training camp prep mode here at APC, as are the other Packers media outlets. The last few previews of the roster are trickling out, as we open up this week's coverage with a look at two key positions.

That guy is Jim Tomsula, who, like Holmgren when he was hired in Green Bay, has virtually no head coaching experience (only a brief stint as interim head coach in 2010).
