Tuesday Cheese Curds: Intriguing running back options available for Packers

The Packers may need to add some talent at running back in the draft.

With the Super Bowl over, it feels like we can finally look ahead to the offseason in earnest. Maybe it’s different for you, but while the playoffs drag on (a feeling, I’m sure, that’s only reserved for fans of teams that don’t make the postseason), it seems like we’re only pretending it’s the offseason. Sure, we’re looking forward to next year, but there were still meaningful football games being played.

But now everybody else is right there with us. It’s the offseason, baby. The 2022 season is done and we’re not trapped by it anymore. Hope springs eternal, and it’s going to bring us draft picks and free agent signings and everything else that goes along with the never-ending optimism of what could be.

So here’s to the offseason. Welcome, Chiefs and Eagles fans. Hope the Super Bowl was fun. Here’s to what’s next.
