Mini-Camp — Day 3


It was a bright sunny day in Green Bay as the final session of the 2017 mini-camp got underway at 11:30 a.m. Yesterday was also a sunny day until a beast of a storm rolled through northeast Wisconsin about 4:15 p.m., producing no less than ten tornadoes in the immediate area.

A quarterbacks meeting.


While he was the top dog in this mini-camp, QB Brett Hundley (#7) will still get a lot of work in Training Camp as the team will control QB Aaron Rodgers’ activity.


Wide receivers working through their fundamental position drills.

Matt Klein, the Packers’ Football Administration Coordinator, is the guy with the voice that you hear booming at practices, letting the players know what is coming next.


Double QBs, a concept the NFL does not allow in games.


WR Davante Adams also eyes the Packerville, U.S.A. camera.


We had heard that it would be a short practice (coach McCarthy thought they accomplished a lot in the last two days), so we thought the practice was over when he called the team together.


But McCarthy had another idea up his sleeve when the players and coaches were told that there would be an egg tossing contest to end the session. Players picked a partner, and then those whose eggs did not break would move back one yard on both sides after each toss.


McCarthy watches to make sure the contest is going as he wanted.


Each time, there would be players eliminated when their eggs broke while a catch was attempted.


The players were really getting into it.

In the end, the winner was LB Jordan Tripp (#58).


When McCarthy had the players gather again at midfield, T David Bakhtiari (#68) and C Corey Linsley (#63) executed a Gatorade™ bath...


... not on Coach McCarthy, as anticipated, but on the egg toss winner, LB Jordan Tripp.


After they broke the team huddle, all of the players came over to thank the fans that showed up to watch mini-camp practices.

Now, players, coaches, and staff have some vacation time until the first 2017 Training Camp practice on July 27.
