Packers apply information and notes, 6/13: Alexander, Douglas report


The Inexperienced Bay Packers kicked off their first obligatory apply of the offseason on Tuesday once they opened up for the primary day of minicamp. The Packers will solely host a two-day minicamp this 12 months, because the third scheduled day has already been canceled for a team-building occasion.

Head coach Matt LaFleur said that there was “good attendance” at Inexperienced Bay’s minicamp, in addition to excused absences — per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Ryan Wooden. The one gamers who didn’t report, in keeping with Wooden, had been security Tarvarius Moore — who has been at voluntary OTA practices — and out of doors linebacker Jonathan Garvin — who hasn’t been at OTAs. Other than Garvin, the one different Packers who haven’t proven up for OTAs this spring had been veteran cornerbacks Jaire Alexander and Rasul Douglas, who each reported for minicamp. At the least on the floor, there doesn’t appear to be any important contractual points that may result in a holdout on Inexperienced Bay’s roster.


Quarterback Jordan Love in all probability had his most spectacular day of apply this offseason immediately, as he bought to go head-to-head towards Alexander for the primary time. Love threw a good window landing to Romeo Doubs with Alexander in good protection and shortly after accomplished a 96-yard bomb to Christian Watson — who once more was matched up on Alexander. The pads have but to return on, however there’s your dose of Love optimism for the week.

In keeping with Andy Herman of the Pack A Day Podcast, the Packers’ beginning offensive line immediately was David Bakhtiari, Elgton Jenkins, Josh Myers, Jon Runyan Jr. and Zach Tom (left to proper.) Tom has had a major quantity of those “begins” this spring, which is shocking contemplating the truth that returning proper sort out Yosh Nijman simply signed a one-year, $4.3 million tender this offseason. It’s potential that Nijman finally ends up working off the bench because the staff’s swing sort out this season.

One other notable “starter” in apply immediately was tight finish Luke Musgrave, who sometimes will get labored in behind veteran Josiah Deguara. It looks as if the tight finish place could be very fluid proper now, nevertheless it’s good to know that the rookie second-round decide is beginning to crack the depth chart.

Herman additionally famous that the Packers break up their staff down the center immediately, separating out the highest finish and backside finish of the roster on both sides of the apply discipline. Undrafted rookie receiver Malik Heath out of Ole Miss earned a spot with “those,” which is one thing to look out for. Possibly he’s going to be our preseason darling this summer season. Heath, a mix invite, ran a 4.64-second 40-yard sprint after main the Rebels — over second-round decide Jonathan Mingo — in receiving final season.


About midway by means of apply, it was reported that former Packers beginning security Adrian Amos had signed a one-year, $4 million contract with the New York Jets. Amos is the third Packers free agent to signal with the Jets following the addition of receivers Randall Cobb and Allen Lazard. When you had been holding out hope that Amos would come again in 2023, that door has formally closed. Inexperienced Bay’s solely remaining unrestricted free brokers are tight finish Marcedes Lewis and kicker Mason Crosby.

Defensively, the Packers’ “starters” immediately of their nickel protection featured T.J. Slaton getting the nod over Devonte Wyatt on the defensive position and Justin Hollins getting a “begin” over Kingsley Enagbare and Lukas Van Ness on the sting. Van Ness sometimes has labored out with the second-team protection within the offseason, however moved as much as working with “those” final week. For what it’s price, Van Ness was one of many extra spectacular gamers throughout Inexperienced Bay’s OTAs.

At security, Rudy Ford is constantly getting the beginning snaps reverse of Darnell Savage, although, it’s price noting that Tarvarious Moore was excused from apply. The gamers who had been held out on account of harm immediately had been receiver Grant DuBose, tight finish Tyler Davis, middle Jake Hanson, defensive lineman Chris Slayton, outdoors linebacker Rashan Gary, cornerback Eric Stokes, security Dallin Leavitt.

Particular Groups

With Leavitt — the staff’s major punt protector — out, Savage was used because the punt protector on particular groups, per Wooden. We’ll see how that one works out.

In keeping with Invoice Huber of Sports activities Illustrated, rookie kicker Anders Carlson had a powerful day of apply, hitting 5 of six discipline objectives from 40 yards or longer. Carlson related on discipline objectives of 41, 47, 49, 51 and 54 yards however was vast proper from 44. I feel we’d all be proud of these outcomes, in a recreation scenario.
