A large group of the Green Bay Packers’ core veteran players are from California. Whether by design or by chance (likely the latter), many of the team’s locker room leaders come from the West Coast state and work out together in the offseason.
Joining the veterans lately has been a young Packers defensive player, Kenny Clark, though he is also a California boy. That California connection makes Vince Biegel’s recent addition to this group such a fun and perhaps a surprising bit of news.
Biegel, of course, is a born-and-raised Wisconsinite, growing up in Wisconsin Rapids and playing his college ball in Madison for the Badgers. After a rookie year marred by an early injury, Biegel has been full-go in the run-up to his second NFL season and is hoping for big things in 2018. Hopefully the success of his colleagues will rub off on him as he aims for an expanded role on the defense this year.
Check out some news on Biegel’s offseason and more in today’s curds.

The Wisconsin boy trained in California this offseason with many of his Packers teammates, including Clay Matthews, Kenny Clark, David Bakhtiari, and Aaron Rodgers. Having that face time with the veterans is great for him to build relationships as well as improving his body.
