NFL: Green Bay Packers OTA Milwaukee Journal Sentinel-USA TODAY Sports

A lot attention has been paid to Martellus Bennett since he signed with the Green Bay Packers this spring, but what about the other tight end they signed?

Lance Kendricks is a familiar name to Packers fans in Wisconsin. A native of Milwaukee and a former Badger standout, Kendricks was selected in the second round of the 2011 draft by the then-St. Louis Rams and spent six seasons with the team before joining the Packers this offseason.
