Perhaps more so than at any other time in the last 15 years, the Green Bay Packers face massive questions about their identity this summer. The quarterback transition amid Aaron Rodgers’ departure has provided a massive dose of uncertainty around the immediate and long-term future of the franchise.

Of course, that’s hardly the only big question facing this team as training camp gets underway later this week, but it’s easily the most important.

Still, this writer has plenty more questions to ask: How will the rookie tight ends look when the pads come on? Is there a real second starter at safety lurking somewhere on the roster? Can Anders Carlson kick or not?

Wednesday will finally start to bring more answers to these questions when the team takes the field for the first time. Keep it here as we all learn together.
