Morning Buzz: Focus on pass protection
Welcome to your Morning Buzz, rounding up news and views regarding the Green Bay Packers from around the web and here atPackersNews.com. Grab a cup of coffee (or brew some tea, if that’s your thing) and get caught up on everything you need to know about the Green and Gold before they take the field for minicamp practice number two.
We start with Ryan Wood taking a look atKevin King’s return to the practice field after having to sit out due to an arcane NFL rule.
The Packers worked around the rule as best they could. They aren’t new to drafting players at universities on the quarter system. A year ago, first-round pick Kenny Clark was drafted out of UCLA, putting him in the same situation King faced this offseason.
King, an American Ethnic Studies major, was in frequent contact with Packers cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt over the past month. He reviewed the team’s eight installation phases while he was away, trying to avoid falling too far behind. His first chance to take all that knowledge onto the field with veterans came Tuesday.
The Packers will ease King back onto the field. He participated only in position drills Tuesday, no team reps. It’s unclear whether King will get team reps this week, or if they’ll have to wait until training camp.
