2015 Training Camp — Day 6

After watching the players riding the kids’ bikes, we watched Day 6 of 2015 Green Bay Packers Training Camp. On the way to the practice field, we took this photo of the building where they store a lot of the pads and other practice equipment. We thought you might be interested.

Since we committed ourselves to watching the bike parade, we gave up our usual routine of waiting to get a prime seat in the stands along Ray Nitschke Field. So, we watched practice this day from a different perspective. 

The linemen of offense and defense squaring off against each other. 

The receivers and defensive backs work together. 

The DB’s work on keeping their pad level low. 

QB Aaron Rodgers heads out from pre-practice drills inside the Don Hutson Center. 

QB Aaron Rodgers warms up with some throws. 

Where we usually sit during practice. 

QB Aaron Rodgers spins the football on his finger like a basketball. 

WR Jordy Nelson (#87) and his receiving mates get some coaching instruction. 

QB Scott Tolzien makes a hand-off to FB John Ripkowski (#22). 

WR Ty Montgomery (#88) and WR Ed Williams (#5).

A gaggle of wide receivers. 

WR Randall Cobb (#18) covers WR Jordy Nelson (#87). 

All four quarterbacks in camp drill in synchronization — Aaron Rodgers (#12), Scott Tolzien (#16), Brett Hundley (#7), and Matt Blanchard (#6). 

FB John Kuhn (#30) gets hands-on instruction. 

More work together with both lines. 

RB Eddie Lacy (#27) and QB Aaron Rodgers (#12) enjoy a laugh during a break. 

QB Aaron Rodgers works on his footwork. 

DT Mike Daniels goes up against an unidentified opponent during a drill between offensive and defensive linemen.

The south end of Ray Nitschke Field generally has fewer fans along the fence. 

Pretty quiet around the southernmost gate as well. 

Packers fans from around the country put a pin in their hometown. There is also a world map (not shown) with quite a few pins on it. 

The northernmost gate (along Armed Forces Drive) has more activity. 

The northern fence of Ray Nitschke Field is usually packed. 

Standing room only, with limited views. 

Packers’ equipment crew and fans shag field goals (the balls are returned to the field)

Players leave the field after practice has concluded. 

WR Randall Cobb (left), WR Davante Adams (center), and RB Eddie Lacy (right) leave together.

WR Jordy Nelson exits and looks for a bike to ride back over to Lambeau. 

Before biking back, a player signs autographs for a few minutes. 

Above and below, QB Scott Tolzien leaves and signs some autographs. 


P Tim Masthay also makes some kids happy by signing autographs after practice.
