While new Packers coach Matt LaFleur is keeping busy trying to fill out his staff, general manager Brian Gutekunst has brought in former Ravens scout and longtime friend Milt Hendrickson to fill a key front office position.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams (17) gets ready pregame for the game against the Minnesota Vikings Sunday, September 16, 2018 at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, WIs.

We'll start with Kelly Price of NBC 26 in Green Bay, who interviewed Packers receiver Davante Adams at a Pro Bowl practice session in Orlando, Florida. Price asked Adams for his thoughts about the hiring of LaFleur.

"He's a great guy," Adams told Price. "I kinda like what he's trying to do with the offense. He's pretty innovative so it will be a good way to mix things up a little bit."

Asked about his first impressions upon meeting LaFleur, Adams told Price, "He's a real young guy, it's a big change-up from (Mike McCarthy's) style, obviously just off the age alone. He's really relatable, which is going to be really good. To be able to lead men, you've got to be able to entertain them and capture their attention and gain their respect. So he's a guy I see that we could definitely head in that direction with."
