NFC North Daily: Hot Breakfast Links for June 7, 2012

Andrew GardaFeatured ColumnistJune 6, 2012

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 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.

Tyler Dunne had a chat with quarterback Aaron Rodgers about his competitiveness and drive to succeed. You know what Rodgers, Brady, Brees and Eli Manning all have in common?

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.


Minnesota Vikings

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.


Chicago Bears

Over at ESPN Chicago, Michael Wright has a report about some changes in the team's scouting department. Meanwhile Jeff Dickerson gives you the schedule for training camp, which starts July 26th.

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.


Detroit Lions

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.
