Cheese Curds, 6/20: Packers' Tailgate Tour continues, #3 QB battle should be one to watch

Are you #TeamWilliams or #TeamCallahan?

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

One of the most entertaining parts of the Green Bay Packers' offseason is underway. The Green Bay Packers embarked on their annual Tailgate Tour on Friday, and since then have made several stops in cities around Wisconsin. The tour continues for another couple of days early this week, and one of the stops is the focus of one of today's cheese curds.

While the handful of players and Packers alumni participating on the Tour are hanging out with fans, the rest of the team is shoring up their knowledge of the team's scheme and playbook. That might be most critical for the pair of players involved in a battle for the third quarterback job behind Aaron Rodgers and Brett Hundley. For these two rookie signal-callers, they will need to show early on in training camp that they can absorb the Packers' complex offense and are ready to take over in the event that the 2013 season repeats itself.

Check out that and much more in today's curds.
