Morning Buzz: Back to Green Bay Packers practice
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 will be back on Ray Nitschke Field today, with practice scheduled for 12:15 p.m.
We’ll start with Tom Silverstein’s early look at the team’s rookie wide receivers.
The Packers are learning a lot about their three rookie receivers – all three of whom are probably going to make the 53-man roster and at least one of whom will be expected to play an active role this season.
Besides the 4.37-second 40-yard dash he ran at the combine, the 6-4, 206-pound Valdes-Scantling offered something the Packers really liked coming out of South Florida, which is a good temperament. His comments after the game were reflective of the way he’s approached things since the day he arrived.
It was obvious from his performance Thursday night that his mistakes during practice have been learning experiences and not death blows to his confidence.
“We’re human,” Valdes-Scantling said. “There’s going to be good days and there are going to be bad days. Nobody ever is going to be perfect. I think I learned that a long time ago. Learned that from my dad: Never get too high, never get too low.
“Even on the greatest days or the worst days, you can always come down and always go back up.”
