The Green Bay Packers are finally set to begin training camp this week when they kick off their first practice on Wednesday, July 26. That marks the end of a long, excruciating offseason and brings us one step closer to real football.
Before we get too far ahead of ourselves, the Packers have plenty of work ahead of them with training camp and preseason games. That’s good news considering they have several question marks entering the season.
With the team officially in a transition phase, there are more uncertainties than ever. The team is brimming with youth and potential, but most of those players are unproven. Let’s check out three overarching questions ahead of training camp.
With Training Camp kicking-off this week, the Green Bay Packers have some serious questions they’ll have to answer during the preseason.
Do the Packers Have Enough Offensive Playmakers?
When Aaron Rodgers stepped in for Brett Favre, he had a star-studded cast of playmakers at his disposal. Between Greg Jennings, Donald Driver, Jordy Nelson, James Jones and Jermichael Finely, Green Bay had a nice blend of proven veterans, guys in their prime, and young players with potential.
This time around, it’s a different story for Jordan Love. He’ll be looking to Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs as the veterans of the receiving corps, despite only being in their second year. Meanwhile, rookies Jayden Reed, Luke Musgrave, and Tucker Kraft will have their chance to make an impact.
But fear not; the Packers can rely on the experienced duo of Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon in the backfield. They’ll be counted on heavily to support Love and the rest of the offensive playmakers in the upcoming season.
