Cheese Curds, 5/19: Barrington earns honor for charity work, Packers lead expected win totals

New, comments

Great work deserves recognition, and one Green Bay linebacker is getting that recognition for his efforts.

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Green Bay Packers do a remarkable job of helping out their community. In addition to the team's charitable foundation, numerous players devote their free time to worthy causes in and around Green Bay and back in their hometowns as well.

One such player is linebacker Sam Barrington. A seventh-round pick in 2014, Barrington has developed into an expected starter on the inside of the Packers' defense, but it is his dedication to the community that has been drawing attention from around the NFL lately - today we learned that he will be honored again for his admirable efforts.

Also in today's curds, we find that the Packers are one of the teams that Vegas believes will be the most successful in 2016, we have a look at the loudest assistant coach on the team, and much more.
