How great is it to have Green Bay Packers football back? Preparations for the season are well underway for Matt LaFleur's new-look team, and several players have stepped up in the opening week of training camp.
It is an exciting time of year. The doors of the long offseason finally slam shut, the sun is shining, and excitement fills Green Bay.
The Packers have a much younger roster than in recent years. They lack experience at many positions, like wide receiver and tight end, but the potential for this team is sky-high over the next few seasons.
Green Bay's new journey began this week, and these four players have already turned heads on the practice field.
4. Tyler Goodson off to fast start at Packers training camp
Tyler Goodson is making plays at training camp, just as he did a year ago.
Goodson missed out on the 53-man roster last summer, but it feels different this time. The Packers are finding ways to get him involved on offense, which is great news for the second-year running back.
Aaron Jones believes Goodson can become a "special player." He could play a variety of roles in Matt LaFleur's offense this season.
Andy Herman of the Pack-A-Day podcast noted that Goodson has spent a good amount of time lined up in the slot. He also starred in the Tyler Ervin role on a jet sweep.
It's encouraging as it shows the Packers believe in Goodson's versatility. There is no doubting his explosiveness. The second-year running back is showing he has a lot to offer this offense, and his chances of making the 53-man roster are increasing by the day.
