Packers Training Camp Open Positions | Ticket King Green Bay

Packers 2016 Roster
Now that the 90 man rosters for teams are set, we look ahead into the Summer, as training camp battles begin to form. The following is our Packers training camp battles to keep an eye on.  

Third String Quarterback: Aaron Rodgers is the starter. Well duh. Have to state the obvious. Brett Hundley will be the backup. That is a given as well. However, the practice squad quarterback job is up for grabs right now between two candidates. Joe Callahan, a Wesley College product, and Marquise Williams, who ran the high-powered North Carolina Tar Heels offense a year ago. Williams has more talent, Callahan is much more intelligent. This could get interesting.

Third String Running Back: I openly criticized Ted Thompson for not drafting a running back in this draft. Eddie Lacy will start. James Starks will be the backup. However, the Packers have a big giant sized hole in the three slot. By default John Crockett will begin camp as the three, but that could change. The other two candidates are Don Jackson, a Nevada product, and Brandon Burks, a Troy product.

Punter: Tim Masthay has been a good punter for the Packers for a while now. However, Father Time waits for nobody. Masthay is already showing signs of age in his legs. His competition this year is Minnesota product Peter Mortell, who has a strong leg and is used to kicking in crap weather. I say Mortell wins this job.

Practice Squad Safety: The Packers secondary is deep, and pretty much set. However, one of those three safeties is headed to the practice squad. The three safeties I am referring to are Louisiana Tech product Kentrell Brice, Utah State product Marwin Evans, and Auburn product Jermaine Whitehead. I sat Brice heads to the practice squad. 

There are not a lot of job openings right now for the Packers, and that can be considered to be a good thing. Are the packers just a few open positions away from being a great team on all levels? The proof would be in the fact that they once again made the playoffs in 2015.
