Packers' Minicamp Begins, Minus Veterans Again

(Green Bay, WI)  —  The Green Bay Packers open their three day June minicamp today (Tuesday), but quarterback Aaron Rodgers and 15 other veterans won’t have to be there. Coach Mike McCarthy says he wants to give his older players a break for the second straight year, which will give the younger players a chance to get more plays at practice. All Packers with at least five years of N-F-L experience can choose to be off until the start of training camp in late July. Beside Rodgers, the group includes receivers Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson, tight ends Martellus Bennett and Lance Kendricks, linebackers Clay Matthews and Nick Perry, and defensive lineman Mike Daniels. Fans can watch the other players practice starting at 11:30 each day.
