Next Man Up(set) - Absolute Packer Podcast

APP podcast #26  - “Next man up(set)” * Snapshots from training camp: * All 3 of us went to the first padded practice of training camp on Saturday 7/28.  First time we had all 3 been together since we first floated the idea of bring in Jeremy(!) * We got to see some of the defensive linemen doing some drills up close - Kenny Clark looks fantastic, as did Mike Daniels.  Montravious Adams has been standing out in 1 on 1’s. * QB’s are not showing much. Hundley has not progressed and Kizer is inconsistent, leaving door open for Tim Boyle. * Other odds and ends from training camp: * Jake Ryan is out for year. Oren Burks and 3 UDFA’s are backups. Should they sign a veteran such as Navorro Bowman? * Rookie WR’s have had a rough camp. Inconsistent play has plagued them. Will they step up and provide “12” reliable weapons? * Thus far WR Jake Kumerow has been the best WR of the backups. “12” has raved about him. If he continues this will leave difficult roster decisions. * Jimmy Graham has been featured in team drills. Will this be the “new look” that MM mentioned? * Offensive line, especially Bakhtiari and Bulaga are injured and it will provide opportunity for Spriggs/Murphy/Bell to prove they are legitimate. * First preseason game against Tennessee tomorrow. Most starters will not play or play very little. Who needs to shine and prove the depth is good enough? * Is team depth sufficient?  Jeremy blogged about it here.https://www.absolutepacker.com/node/42 * DE/OLB Khalil Mack is holding out of Oakland’s training camp in hopes of new contract. * Would it be wise to call Oakland and explore trade? * What would be a fair trade? * Would he improve the Packers defense? * Non-Football Stuff * The league has suspended the new anthem rule until further notice. Teams like Miami have taken matters into their own hands and will suspend or fine players for not standing.http://www.latimes.com/sports/nfl/la-sp-nfl-dolphins-anthem-20180720-story.html?outputType=amp * Other NFC North Stuff: * Chicago Bears: rookie LB Roquan Smith is still without a contract.
