Halfway through the week and it's been pretty quiet, which is sort of the calm before the storm.
I'll be on Railbird Central over at CheeseheadTV.com around 9:30 am EST/8:30 central to talk Packers with Brian Carriveau. You can hear it live at CHTV where they'll be streaming it, or catch the podcast later.
Today we have the usual OTA news, some Q&A with a GB QB, the aftermath of Jerome Felton's arrest, a training camp schedule, a charitable Brian Urlacher and some movement by Ndamukong Suh.
Green Bay Packers
Speaking of Carriveau and CHTV, Brian wrote a piece over there about second-year receiver Randall Cobb stepping into aging veteran Donald Driver's old role. As far back as last year's draft, I've said that was what I eventually saw happening, and Cobb's speed and deadly after-the-catch ability fit perfectly in that role.
People told them they couldn't do it.
Over at ESPN Milwaukee, Jason Wilde talks about Mike Neal, his Adderall use and how he looks to prove himself this season.
Jeremy Fowler tells us about Percy Harvin and Chad Greenway's return to OTAs.
What's next for Jerome Felton after his arrest for driving drunk? Dan Wiederer takes a closer look at how Felton's arrest might shape his future as a Viking.
Over at the Tribune, Vaughn McClure (which, if he wasn't a John Wayne character, should have been) writes about Devin Hester focusing on punt returns, not kickoff returns this season. My only comment on this—as you know my thoughts by now—is a big heavy sigh.
Brian Urlacher stepped up to help a former teammate in fund raising for his varsity football team, according to Brad Biggs.
Dave Birkett says that the Lions are taking Warren Sapp's advice and planning on moving Ndamukong Suh around more. Like or hate Sapp, he knew his trade, and he makes an excellent point, one which I didn't think needed to be made but apparently did—Suh and Nick Fairley side by side could be a very good look for the Lions.
Finally, Anwar Richardson catches us up on who is doing well in OTA's—which includes midget-armed Riley Reiff, whose T-Rex arms apparently didn't hurt his play after all.
That was sarcasm by the way.
