Morning Buzz: Packers ready for camp
Welcome to your Morning Buzz, rounding up news and views regarding the Green Bay Packers from around the web and here at PackersNews.com. Grab a strong cup of coffee and get caught up on everything you need to know about the Packers.
We’ll start with Ryan Wood’s pre-camp 53 man roster prediction.
At the onset of each training camp, a general manager dreams of facing difficult roster decisions.
In theory, tough personnel choices indicate a roster bloated with talent. Of course it also could mean mediocrity. Which will be the Green Bay Packers’ reality this August won’t be known until the regular season is well underway, but this much seems likely as Brian Gutekunst embarks on his first preseason as general manager: Difficult decisions are looming.
It’s always a fool’s errand to predict the 53-man roster before training camp. This year is especially challenging. An overview of the Packers’ 90-man roster entering camp, which will start 11:30 a.m. Thursday at Ray Nistchke Field, foreshadows several positions that could develop into roster battles. The list includes quarterback, receiver, offensive line, outside linebacker and the secondary.
