The band is back together in Green Bay.
The Green Bay Packers kicked off organized team activities (OTAs) on Monday, marking the first time the full version of the 2018 team is under one roof.
After an offseason that saw the most change in Green Bay in several years, anticipation is high to see what shape the team will be in. With a new general manager and defensive coordinator and completely revamped offensive playbook, there will be more learning going on at 1265 Lombardi than at any time since head coach Mike McCarthy’s first season in 2006.
While you can’t take too much away from
OTAs, they will give a sneak peek into various position battles that will fully commence once training camp starts plus the first full look at the rookie class.
The start of OTAs marks just the first step in the marathon that is the NFL season, but the boys are back in town which means the start of the season is that much closer.
More on OTAs plus a cool rookie orientation idea in today’s cheese curds.
Brett Hundley vs DeShone Kizer will be a battle to watch throughout the spring and summer. The fight for the third wide receiver spot will also be something to keep your eye on.
Jarrett Bush, Nick Barnett and Brandon Jackson will be coaching interns during OTAs.
What a cool idea. The rookies now know they are part of a tradition unlike anything else in professional sports.
The Packers got taller and longer in 2018. How will that translate to the field? Time will tell.
Sometimes the headlines just write themselves. I mean, pets are family and parrots talk back more than a small child so…..
