Three takeaways from the Packers’ first practice at training camp.

After a long and very different offseason, the Green Bay Packers were finally back on the practice field on Saturday, their first of training camp. Of course, it wasn’t a typical training camp practice as there were no fans in attendance, but the good news is that the Packers are back on the field.

The big takeaway before practice started was that defensive tackle Kenny Clark signed a four-year extension, as reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter. A well-deserved new deal for the Packers’ star nose tackle. The Packers check off one of the top priorities on their to-do list. Next up is to extend David Bakhtiari’s contract.

The Packers have a lot to work on over the next four weeks, and less practice time than ideal to do so. Starting today, every single practice session will be important as the team prepares for the regular season, which begins with a road game against the Minnesota Vikings.

There will also be no preseason games this month. Originally, the first preseason game was scheduled for Saturday.

So, with Green Bay’s first practice of the summer now in the books, let’s look at what we’ve learned.

What are the top three takeaways from practice?
