Packers: Three early predictions for training camp 2019
Three early predictions for the Green Bay Packers at training camp.
It’s been a long wait for Green Bay Packers fans ever since their playoff hopes were officially ended on Dec. 16, 2018. In fact, when the Packers take to the field for their first training camp practice on Thursday, it will have been 221 days since they were eliminated from playoff contention in a loss to the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field.
Despite all of the excitement there has been this offseason, Packers fans are ready for football to return. And, hopefully, a Packers team with a winning record will also return.
But before the regular season gets underway in just over six weeks time, the Packers enter training camp. As ever, there are a number of talking points and training camp battles which will take place in the coming weeks, leading to general manager Brian Gutekunst and head coach Matt LaFleur finalizing the 53-man roster ahead of the season opener in September.
The quietest part of the NFL calendar has thankfully finished. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Packers rookies report to training camp on Monday, with the rest of the team joining them on Wednesday.
With the Packers’ offseason now complete, here are three early predictions for the Packers at training camp.
