The members of the Green Bay Packers’ coaching staff are drooling this morning as they get defensive.
Fresh legs, fresh bodies, young players itching to get going will certainly have Mike McCarthy and his minions wide-eyed and ready to teach.
That’s because all of the Packers rookies – signed or unsigned – are in Green Bay today for the start of the Packers’ rookie orientation camp. And a large majority of the players in camp will be defensive players. The Packers went defense in last week’s draft in hopes of improving the 32nd (yes folks, that’s dead last) defense from a year ago.
Signed already are Michigan State defensive lineman Jerel Worthy and defensive back Jerron McMillian of Maine.
Not only are the members of the Packers staff ready to go, everyone I’ve talked to have been champing at the bit to see those guys wearing yellow helmets with the G on it running around on the field – especially considering the way the Brewers have been playing lately.
Time to get excited folks, if you haven’t already caught the football bug.
