Morning Buzz: Packers back on the practice field
Welcome to your Morning Buzz, rounding up news and views regarding the Green Bay Packers from around the web and here at PackersNews.com.
The Packers return after an off day on Sunday with a 12:15 p.m. practice on Ray Nitschke Field.
We’ll start with Ryan Wood’s chronicling of the personal journey by linebacker Ahmad Thomas to find his birth parents.
Thomas expected the reunion to bring closure. It instead became the start of two new, meaningful relationships, growing his family. He remains in frequent contact with both. Skyler said she anticipates hosting them in Green Bay again.
More surprising than Thomas’ connection with his parents is their own relationship. Michael and Michelle, always searching for each other, were married at a courthouse in April. A wedding is planned for next year, Thomas said.
He doesn’t have to wonder anymore. His yearning has subsided, replaced with answers. Looking back, Thomas is glad he sent that email.
“I feel like I do know who I am because my family shaped that,” Thomas said, “but at the same time I didn’t know what I was. So that was important to me to tell my kids, like, ‘This is what you are.’”
