Cheese Curds, 6/28: Packers’ top-end talent is unmatched; get your Family Night tickets soon

It was a long summer in 2020 without Family Night or public training cap practices, but at least the former is getting back to normal this August.

If you think that having elite individual talent is the way to get to the NFL’s promised land, then the Green Bay Packers are set up better than any team in the league for 2021. Well, they will be with the caveat that this assumes Aaron Rodgers will be back under center.

Ultimately, the fearsome foursome of Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams, David Bakhtiari, and Jaire Alexander is better than any other quartet around the league, according to one of the most prominent NFL analysis websites in existence. And that doesn’t even acknowledge the greatness of Za’Darius Smith, Kenny Clark, Aaron Jones, and others. This roster is stacked with talent, but often times it’s not the strongest link, but rather the weakest that defines how far a team goes. Hopefully this year’s roster has improved some of the weaker links.

Among the first looks that the public will get at the Packers’ roster this summer is the team’s annual Family Night practice, which returns this August from a one-year hiatus. On Friday, the team announced when tickets will go on sale for that event, so make sure to circle the date on your calendar if you’re looking to attend this year’s event.

Adams is the obvious WR1 -- perhaps WR1 in the entire NFL right now -- but who will be his primary running mate on the outside? If you're only following our top plays countdown, you might think MVS is a shoo-in, but don't count out Allen Lazard or even Devin Funchess.

Aaron Rodgers deserves better from Packers, says ex-NFL QB Alex Smith | USA Today
Former NFL quarterback supports current NFL quarterback. There's not really much to see here. It is notable, however, how Smith and Rodgers have stayed connected after they were the two players considered for the #1 pick in 2005.
