The Packers are two practices deep in the OTA portion of the offseason. Are they championship contenders yet?
Well, no, but nobody is in May. Truthfully, these are pretty minimal practice reps, and the OTA sessions are as much about establishing what it takes to be a pro as anything else. But if growing pains are going to be a part of this season, we might as well get to them early, right?

Matt LaFleur loves receivers who block, and Grant DuBose did plenty of that in college.
The former Packers adversary is out of the NFL in just about every conceivable way but says he still has something to contribute should the right team come calling.
