The Green Bay Packers hit the field for the first time tonight ...

Training camp tweets

The Green Bay Packers opened training camp tonight and all the beat writers were working overtime … that is with their thumbs … the tweets were  flying hot and heavy from all of them … thanks folks … almost as good as being there.

With that in mind, let me give you a taste of what’s been tweeted by these fine folks … their work is after the jump … Enjoy …

Remember first days where pads & skulls cracked under hot sun. Have a feeling this is not your father’s training camp (cool, easing in).

dj smith might be shortest lb I’ve seen in 19 years covering packers camp. Little over 5-10, doesn’t mean he cant play, is
6-round pick
