Green Bay Packers fans have been waiting years for a chance to see the trio of Bart Starr, Brett Favre, and Aaron Rodgers together at once. Last season was the first realistic chance for that to happen, but unfortunately with one of those quarterbacks playing in the game, there was no time for a quick meeting between all three of them during the game. However, don't lose hope, because in today's curds, we have news that something indeed happened that day and that there may be opportunities to see those three together after all.

Meanwhile, we find news of several different players looking at their NFL careers in very different ways. One is discussing what he might do when his playing days are over; another is entering a contract year at a new position; still others are learning the ropes of the offense and hoping for breakout seasons.

And finally, we have the start of the second week of OTAs for the Packers today, which will kick off with a closed practice. Thursday's practice should be open to the public, however, so stay tuned tomorrow for updates from Green Bay.
