The Green Bay Packers are off on their own as the offseason is in full swing, and for one Packer that means swinging some golf clubs. Aaron Rodgers is hitting the links this weekend in a pro-am tournament, and he's matched up with a fellow NFL player who dealt a death blow to the Packers' season.

Also in the news today is former Packers coach Kevin Greene, who is hoping to return to coaching, and some mock draft and free agency items of interest.

Finally, today marks the anniversary of a major turning point for the Packers' franchise. It's all here in today's cheese curds!
