NFL, Packers news: Monday morning mail call

Good morning, Green Bay Packers fans. We hope you’ve recovered from the barrage of news that continues to pour down on all NFL fans, including us Packers fans.

It’s been an incredible 10 days. Starting with the NFL Draft last weekend, the mega-contract signing by Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the completion of the draft and all the analysis that inundated us (and continues to do so), the coming out by NBA player Jason Collins and the situation that came about for former Packer safety LeRoy Butler who had a speaking engagement cancelled because of his support of Collins.

Several highs and lows were experienced by sports fans across the spectrum.

What can we expect this week? Well, several teams held their rookie orientations (the Packers are coming up), the ongoing analyses of every draft pick will no doubt continue, and the NFL offseason shows us that even politics can throw wrenches into topics such as the Super Bowl – see the story below about the supposed plan for improvements at Sun Life Stadium in Miami.

As for Packers Nation, we were informed that Head Coach Mike McCarthy isn’t standing still and plans significant changes along the offensive line; we get to know the newest members of the Packers roster through stories that shed light on the personalities and college careers of the team’s draft picks; and the team readies for its rookie orientation and OTAs that are coming up.

So, without further ado, we provide a few links below to stories that may be of interest to you …
