Cheese Curds, 7/15: Packers players pass the summer with golf, goat yoga, and Randy Moss

If you’re Aaron Rodgers, you hit the links. If you’re a young player still looking for a breakout, you’re probably finding other ways to pass the time before training camp kicks off.

Everyone has their own thing, right? NFL players who have down time in the summer all spend it differently, and over the weekend we learned about three different Green Bay Packers players who are spending their summers with a variety of people and activities.

The Packers will report to training camp next week, with just nine days remaining until the team’s report date. But for the team’s biggest star, that could mean nine more days of golf out in his home state of California. For a budding second-year pro, there are more opportunities to hang out with fans in and around Green Bay and lead yoga classes.

And for one young receiver, that’s another week of learning his craft from a legendary wideout — despite the fact that the mentor is hardly a revered figure in Green Bay. Quite the opposite in fact; however, any sensible Packers fan would recognize that working out with a Hall of Famer like Randy Moss can only be a positive for a young player.

Here’s what these three players have been up to recently.
