As the Green Bay Packers' football operations staff continues to prepare for the start of free agency and the 2017 NFL Draft, a former player for the team is working hard to get another shot at a job in the NFL. That player was unceremoniously booted last summer, and was unable to find a significant job interview for much of the rest of the season.

In today's Cheese Curds, we examine that player, then shift our focus over to the team's fandom. The Packers inducted a new member of the teams Fan Hall of Fame this week, and there are unlikely to be any more deserving honorees than the man recognized this year. From his devotion to the team to his community service, this individual appears to be an ideal representative of Packers fans around the world, and we congratulate him.

Finally, we get a spin through some other Packers-related coverage, including some discussion of a possible free agent and much more.

Okay, Julian. I'm sure Jimmy G is a nice kid, but either this is an overstatement or he needs to start backing up that confidence on the playing field instead of the practice field.
