Cheese Curds, 5/27: On Ty Montgomery's slow recovery & Eddie Lacy's workout regimen

New, comments

Green Bay's players spent their offseasons doing drastically different things, from rehabbing on an exercise bike to getting in shape with the help of daily show-shoveling contests.

The Green Bay Packers are looking forward to a number of returns this season. By "returns", we mean a few things: one is players returning from injury, while another involves returns to elite form from players who showed it in years past. Often these are related as well - for Aaron Rodgers, for example, his return to MVP form may depend on the return of his receivers and offensive line from injury.

One of the receivers who should help that bounce-back for the Packers' QB is Ty Montgomery, whose 2015 season was wiped out after just six games. He gets examined in today's cheese curds, along with more discussion about the regimen that running back Eddie Lacy used to get himself back into the shape that he displayed in the first two years of his career.

Meanwhile, we also find some interesting or ridiculous notes from OTAs around the NFL, including a report of a team that violated the CBA as well as some of the more bizarre oddities and silly news stories to come out of spring camp.
