Packers Morning Buzz: New additions face fast adjustments
Welcome to your Morning Buzz, rounding up news and views regarding the Green Bay Packers from around the web and here at PackersNews.com.
We'll start with Jim Owczarski's story on what players who sign with the Packers during the season must endure, both on the job and at home:
Bashaud Breeland’s eyes widened as reporters packed into a half moon around his locker, which still had “Green Bay Packers” across the placard above him. Signed on an off day, the new Packers corner was closed in upon, television camera “sun guns” projecting a soft, yellowish glow on his forehead.
Like Morrison, Darius Jackson, Korey Toomer and Deante Burton before him, Breeland was asked about how he physically arrived in Green Bay. The answer is standard: You get a call and a flight time, so you pack and go.
“It’s just new,” Breeland said. “So I gotta adjust to it and get used to it. You can’t get no more stressed than what I’ve been through all offseason.”
“When you’re a kid, you’re like, 'oh man, I’m going trade him to this team and he looks sweet in those colors.' That’s really what people really think in real life,” Jackson said. “They’re like oh man yeah, go play. They don’t understand your whole life changes. At least temporarily.”
