We now know when Green Bay will wear their throwback jerseys - on a game that syncs up with some honors for the team's newest Hall of Famer.

With just a week to go until the start of the Green Bay Packers' 2016 training camp, it's understandable if you're getting impatient for football season to begin. After all, the team's Family Night scrimmage is less than two weeks away and the first preseason game is less than three weeks out.

And as we continue to inch closer to the season, we learn more and more about what plans the team has for the 2016 regular season. On Monday, we learned when the Packers will wear their throwback jerseys, and we at APC are hoping that the opponent - a fairly legendary franchise in their own right - might be interested in wearing throwbacks of their own for that game.

Meanwhile, as most of the Packers are preparing to start camp in a few days, one in particular has been continuing the preparation he had this spring - namely, working with the guy who helped get him into better shape this spring. Check out that and much more in today's Cheese Curds.
