The first three days of training camp are done, and while the players rest we look at some of the takes to come out of the first taste of football.

There were a few whispers early in the week about what the Packers would need to do to trade for Julio Jones while he disputed his contract. The whispers have died down but with his contract situation taken care of this take is no longer hot.

Moving on to training camp, Aaron Rodgers opened it up by throwing an interception to Kevin King. The comments on Rodgers’ performance came swiftly and with incredible fervor. The takes even included that old song, “It’s his girlfriend’s fault”.

Quinten Rollins is possibly changing position after showing minimal impact at corner. Could this save his spot on the roster? And speaking of roster bubble players, Trevor Davis was looking good before the pads came on.

With three rookie wide receivers all over 6’3” and each with blistering speed, the hype trains are already rolling out of the station. But the question on everyone’s mind seems to be, “Who is the next Jeff Janis?!”

Kyler Fackrell managed to improve his 1-on-1 pass rushing record, if only slightly. How will this affect him?

The takes for the week finish with backup quarterbacks. Who will be the #2 behind Aaron Rodgers? Some think it may be Tim Boyle.

With another week of practices on the horizon, expect more opinions to be shared and for them to be reviewed right here on Hottest Take of the Week.
