The Packers had to be nervous about their receiver group going into training camp. This off-season they lost three of their top five receivers from last year. Of course Green Bay attempted to fill the need with the draft a few months back. They drafted three wide receivers out of their 11 picks.

It’s nothing new for NFL players to make a flashy entrance to training camp. Twitter blew up as Aaron Rodgers walked in to practice in costume. The Packers star looked less like the starting quarterback and more like Nicholas Cage from Con Air. The master marketer of course knew exactly what he was doing.
