Welcome to the Packers news today.

According to Rob Demovsky of ESPN, the Green Bay Packers had six players in for workouts, including two wide receivers. One of them is former Wisconsin receiver A.J. Taylor, who is coming off a torn Achilles.

The Packers also worked out wide receiver La’Michael Pettway, quarterback J’Mar Smith, tight end Hunter Thedford, guard Fisayo Awolaja, and tackle Chidi Okeke. It will be interesting to see whether any of these players end up getting signed by the Packers.
