Blizzard pushes back start of Packers' offseason program
The Green Bay Packers were forced to delay the start of their offseason program due to a powerful snowstorm that ripped through northeast Wisconsin over the weekend, with several players taking to social media to chronicle their travel misadventures as they tried to return to Green Bay.
Players were supposed to be back Sunday for a bright and early start to offseason work Monday, but once it became clear the storm would delay almost every plane or car heading to or through Wisconsin, the team gave them Monday as another travel day.
The Packers plan to begin the offseason program Tuesday morning. The team's first media availability also was pushed back to Tuesday.
Offensive linemen Lucas Patrick and Kyle Murphy kept their Twitter followers entertained with several updates over the weekend as they tried to fly from Minneapolis to Green Bay.
