Packers players show excitement for Training Camp on social media

Training camp is here, and on Monday and Tuesday most of the Green Bay Packers’ players made the journey from wherever they make their offseason homes out to Green Bay in order to be set up to report to camp Wednesday morning. Several of the team’s stars chose to express their excitement for the new season on social media, including a certain two-time MVP.

Both left tackle David Bakhtiari and new Packers tight end Lance Kendricks made the trip from California and ended up on the same flight (no word on whether they were actually seated next to each other or if they were just able to get a quick photo before getting split up).

Aaron Rodgers caught a view of Lambeau Field from his airplane when en route to Austin-Straubel Airport on Tuesday and followed it up with a bevy of fascinating hashtags:

Good to see you old friend. #trainingcamp #dormlife #greenbay #greenbaypackers #lucky13 #hashtag #midrange

Meanwhile, Martellus Bennett had an unfortunate situation on Tuesday night. He arrived late yesterday in Green Bay. However, it was too late to get checked into the dorms at St. Norbert College, so he did what any normal football player would do*: slept on the floor in the Packers’ clubhouse, next to his locker. (Be warned: the video contains some strong language)
