What are the Green Bay Packers’ top five training camp battles to watch this summer?
Training camp begins in little over three weeks, and the Green Bay Packers will have a number of interesting positional battles to watch.

New general manager Brian Gutekunst was active in his search for more defensive talent, particularly at cornerback. His number one priority in the spring was to give new defensive coordinator Mike Pettine as much talent to work with as possible.

Just 45 days stands between the Packers’ first training camp practice on July 26, and their regular season opener with the Chicago Bears. In that time, a number of questions will be answered at key positions.
