The Packers (along with the rest of the NFL) officially kick off their training camp today in Green Bay and in a surprising turn of events, it has been reported that Aaron Rogers WILL be there. The New York Post is saying that last week, Aaron reportedly turned down a contract that would have extended his contract for two years and pay him more than $45 million per year...instead, his contract is expected to be reworked to end at the end of this coming season. Apparently that also clears up Davante Adams to continue his new contract negotiations.
Regardless of Aarons status, you can absolutely be at camp. I've gone many many times, the Packers have one of the most open and accessible training camps in the NFL, from the players riding bikes from the locker rooms and kids carrying their helmets to the free practices at Ray Nitschke field, its so fun...you get to see the Pack up close, which is cool if you're not able to make to any games during the season!
Sadly, we were not able to make the trip to Green Bay last year, as the Pandemic closed the training camp to the public. The Packers, this week, announced that this year it's back open.
Here are some of the details from PACKERS.COM:
"...training camp kicks off with a practice on Wednesday, July 28. It will be the first of four straight practices as part of the opening week (July 28-31). The Packers will open the second week with three open practices (Aug. 2-3, 5), before Family Night takes place at Lambeau Field on Saturday, Aug. 7. Green Bay will have three open practices (Aug. 10-12) before the first preseason game on Aug. 14 against the Houston Texans at Lambeau Field. Green Bay will finish off the open sessions of training camp with two joint practices (Aug. 18-19) with the New York Jets, before facing the Jets at Lambeau Field on Aug. 21.
