2. How do the Packers rotate the offensive line?

The Packers have prioritized versatility and athleticism along the offensive line. The good news is it gives Matt LaFleur almost endless options. The bad news is that he has to somehow figure out the best starting five.

Zach Tom remains sidelined with a pec injury, which will give first-round pick Jordan Morgan more opportunities to prove himself at tackle. Can he squash any concerns about his arm length and show why he can play at either tackle position? Will a move inside help bring the best out of Morgan?

Is Sean Rhyan the frontrunner at right guard? Will the Packers create competition for Josh Myers at center? There are countless questions and a lot of uncertainty along the offensive line, but that's a good thing. It highlights Green Bay's improved depth and versatility. LaFleur has options.

The Packers won't make any final decisions during minicamp, but the work this week is an important part of the process.

1. Are the Packers any closer to Jordan Love contract extension?

The wait for Jordan Love's contract extension goes on. Less than six weeks separates the end of minicamp and the Packers' opening training camp practice. General manager Brian Gutekunst said he wants to get a new deal with Love finalized before then. Time is ticking.

There's no reason to believe the extension won't be done by then. It's in the best interest of both sides to make an agreement.

This article partly proves why. Love's contract is the Packers' No. 1 storyline at minicamp. That's the reality, and it will continue until it's done. If training camp opens and Love has no deal, we all know what the first question Love, Gutekunst, and LaFleur will be asked when they talk to reporters.

The Packers don't want the lack of a new deal to become a distraction once training camp begins. Hopefully, Gutekunst will give us an update at minicamp.
