Brian,

Are you guys going to do any live blogs/reports from TC practices?

It has probably been linked to from this site, but in case it hasn't...here is the Packers training camp practice schedule:

And since morning practices don't exist any more, I'll be working through practically all of the practices, so I won't get to visit the live blog much. Oh well.

Hey Brian -- I see you've been tweeting, might you have any answers/info?

Q1
Does anyone know what happened to Josh Bell? up until yesterday he was on the roster, albeit without a jersey number -- now he's GONE !!!

Q2
Wilhelm. On the team, or not ? Both player and agent say "not", but he's still on the roster.

Q3
Quarless. Per MM presser (via GBPG): "still going through testing with physicals"

1. Josh Bell was a free agent. He was listed on the Packers roster along with all their free agents. He won't be back.

2. It's been reported the Packers won't sign Wilhelm.

3. Don't know about Quarless other than what McCarthy just said, and he didn't elaborate.

thanks, Brian

My count: 84 (with ERFAs) -- but not including Bigby, Jenkins, Jones, Kuhn, A. Smith

Sidenote: Dominguez and Genus sound like a couple of good oLine prospects. I'm excited to see what we've got there!

Add Wilheim to the list. Still 6 UFAs that could be resigned.

Bigby's number was given to Alex Green... highly doubt Packers are interested.

Yeah, it would be weird for GB to ask Bigby to return, but with a different number -- don't see it happening !

Soooo -- it's down to Jones, Kuhn, and Smith.

I'm about ready to say "screw it" (assuming that all agree to make me "GM" for the day) and rescind any offer to these three, and pursue six other players (that ***want*** to play for GB) and get on with it...

I watched Genus for all the USF home games last year, I can remember him really mauling some people last year. I hope he turns out to be a beast. I'm excited for this year. GO PACK GO

This could be a major steal (ala Sam Shields). I haven't found any negs, only positives (National Honor Society in HS; earned his degree in criminology early; Sixth in state in powerlifting as a junior … 420 bench and 305 power clean) -- wonder why he didn't get drafted ??

He's a "natural" Center (since age 7) -- may allow McDonald to focus on LG ??
