It’s difficult to fly into Green Bay when there’s weather problems anywhere in the nation.
Just as Rams running back Steven Jackson found out a few days ago when he was scheduled to come to Green Bay for a speaking engagement, free agent defensive lineman Chris Canty reportedly couldn’t reach Green Bay on Wednesday either.
The problem is that Green Bay isn’t served by a direct flight by too many airlines. Most people, not just football players, frequently have to grab a connecting flight in places like Milwaukee, Chicago or Minneapolis.
Canty is still expected to be in Green Bay on Thursday and will resume his regularly-scheduled meeting with the Packers.
With free agency now less than a week away, Canty will likely be looking to strike a deal with a team over the course of the next couple days.
Also on taking place on Thursday is a ceremony honoring former Packers running back Jim Taylor as a “Hometown Hall of Famer” by the Pro Football Hall of Fame and Allstate Insurance Agency.
Taylor will be in his hometown of Baton Rouge, La., which will be presented with a plaque recognizing the town where Taylor grew up.
