While Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams hangs out in the sun in Orlando, the team’s decision-makers are in rainy Mobile, Alabama this week for the Senior Bowl. Practice on Wednesday was moved inside, meaning most of the media (including APC’s Owen Riese) were unable to observe practice.
However, NFL.com did get a handful of people in, and we have a look at the day’s practice from that source. It looks to be an exciting group of players at this year’s game, particularly at positions that the Packers need this offseason.
Meanwhile, Adams spoke to NBC26’s Kelly Price at Pro Bowl practice, and provided the first substantial interview by a member of the team since Matt LaFleur got the job as the next head coach. Give it a watch and get pumped up for what this offense could look like in 2019.

Matt LaFleur left a good impression when they met Fri. Adams says the new HC is "a real young guy," "really relatable" and "a real change-up" from McCarthy.

This is pretty hilarious. Even with defensive pass interference set to zero, an attempt to replicate Sunday's controversial play in the video game still drew a flag.
