It may not be to visit with the Packers organization, but free agent Ryan Pickett returns to Wisconsin on Saturday to host his namesake football camp in Brookfield, Wis.
Last we heard from a representative of the Packers commenting on Pickett, head coach Mike McCarthy said, "No doors are closed yet" on a potential return.
Regardless, former Green Bay defensive lineman will appear at the Brookfield Indoor Soccer Complex to provide instruction to high school football players.
According to the camp's website, Pickett is committed to helping high school players get noticed by colleges.
"Athletes are not always well known," Pickett is quoted as saying. "Their names may not be on some top national player list. Today, they have to reach out on a personal level and take control of their recruiting if they are serious about playing ball in college. Our Elite Combines offer them that chance to be empowered, and take control of their recruiting journey."
Athletes must register for the camp at TheRecruitingFactory.com to take part.
The Packers do have a roster spot open after releasing injured running back Johnathan Franklin last week, but their level of interest in Pickett does not appear to be very high at the moment.
Elsewhere, Packers running back Eddie Lacy will be appearing at the Fanatics Authentic Sports Spectacular in Rosemont, Ill. on Saturday.
Lacy will be signing autographs from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for a fee.
The event takes place at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center and has a $10 admission charge.
Finally, a trio of former Packers will sign autographs on Saturday at Waukesha Sportscards in Waukesha, Wis.
Wide receiver Robert Brooks, tight end Jeff Dellenbach and linebacker Lamont Hollinquest—all members of the winning Super Bowl XXXI team—will appear from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
The cost of an autograph varies depending on the player. More details can be found at the above link.
