iPhone : #Packers have a pair of WRs trying out today: Adonis Jennings (1) out of Temple, and Malik Turner (13) out of Illinois.

TweetDeck : One of more interesting things to see when camp opens next month is progress from #Packers trio of 2nd-year RBs. They need Jamaal Williams, Aaron Jones, even Devante Mays to make Year 2 jump. Without live reps, MM says very little evaluation can b made at that position currently.

TweetDeck : With top three TEs excused from minicamp, #Packers coach Mike McCarthy says this week is big opportunity to develop youngsters. Says they'll have more double tight end sets, trying to get everyone reps before veterans return.

iPhone : #Packers S Kentrell Brice back from “ankle reconstruction” surgery” after playing 4 games on a torn deltoid ligament last season. amp.packersnews.com/amp/696041002#…

TweetDeck : Raih with great breakdown of #Packers WR Davante Adams' game: "Davante is a guy who uses extreme detail at the line of scrimmage to create separation." Raih says it's great example for rookies to learn.

TweetDeck : #Packers WR coach David Raih says rookie Marquez Valdes-Scantling is "playing fast off the ball." Earlier, Jim Hostler said he was surprised how "sudden" he is. Hands will be big thing for him, but fifth rounder clearly impressing with his athleticism.

TweetDeck : #Packers RB coach Ben Sirmans says Ty Montgomery's role will start to develop in training camp. Expects intense RB battle, but: "I think he's too talented for him not to be on the football field." Sirmans especially likes Montgomery's ability to create matchup problems.

TweetDeck : Even though #Packers have more depth at center with Dillon Day and Austin Davis behind Corey Linsley, OL coach James Campen says Justin McCray and Lucas Patrick are still being trained at center as well as guard.

TweetDeck : #Packers OC Joe Philbin says each of the three rookie WRs flashed good skillsets running around in shorts, but notes there isn't much press coverage in the spring. How well they can get open in tight coverage when the pads come on will be key to their early evaluations in camp.

iPhone : Five #Packers not practicing at minicamp today because of injury:
WR Trevor Davis (hammy)
S Josh Jones (ankle)
ILB Jake Ryan (hammy)
OLB Kyler Fackrell (hammy)
WR Geronimo Allison (ankle)

iPhone : Brett Hundley hits EQ St. Brown, covered by Jaire Alexander, in back corner of end zone for TD to end 2-minute drill. Plus, Alexander called for PI. Hundley fired up with that completion.

iPhone : As they’ve done in past, #Packers “select vet” group of players excused from minicamp consist of anyone with at least 6 years experience. That group: Rodgers, Crosby, Cobb, House, Williams, Matthews, Perry, Taylor, Bakhtiari, Bell, Bulaga, Daniels, Graham, Kendricks, Lewis, Mo W.

iPhone : Taking attendance, per Mike McCarthy’s instructions. #Packers S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is present at mandatory minicamp.

TweetDeck : #Packers announce they've hired Lee Gissendaner as personnel executive to the player personnel department. No idea what that title means, but sounds important. Gissendaner spent last 3 seasons as Jets national scout. Before that, he worked 17 seasons in Green Bay.

TweetDeck : McCarthy asked if #Packers S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is at minicamp: "You guys can take attendance. It's a mandatory minicamp, so things step up. But I feel really good about Ha Ha all the way through."

TweetDeck : McCarthy says 16 veterans excused from minicamp, a group he calls "vet select," were chosen based on merit calculated through internal evaluations.
