2017 Training Camp • Practice 8

Green Bay Packers practice on Monday at 12:15 p.m. started not with special teams, but stretching and team tackling. We always get hungry for donuts after watching this drill.

CB Davon House (#31) did not practice at all.

DT Brian Price (#96) gets doubled teamed at the line of scrimmage.

Offensive coaches call the play during one of the scrimmage sessions.

QB Aaron Rodgers (#12) making an adjustment at the line.

RB William Stanback (#43) gets into the open on a running play.

QB Brett Hundley (#7) turns to make a hand-off while linemen battle behind him.

Offensive linemen help push the ballcarrier forward, despite the best efforts of the defense.

QB Aaron Rodgers (#12) lets a long touchdown pass fly.

TE Martellus Bennett (#80) seemed to be in a displeased mood all through practice.

A better look at the cleats that TE Martellus Bennett (#80) was wearing in practice.

TE Richard Rodgers (#82), while seemingly outshined by the two free-agent pickups at the position, is still holding his own. Here he works on catches along the sideline.

Close-up blocking work by T David Bakhtiari (#69) on G Geoff Gray (#74).

Group work involving G Jahri Evans (#73), G Thomas Evans (#60), T Bryan Bulaga (#75), and an unidentified teammate.

TE Martellus Bennett (#80) also working on catches along the near sideline.

A herd of quarterbacks moving along the football prairie.

Three receivers: one starter, and two draftee hopefuls.

QB Joe Callahan (#6) scrambles to his left, flushed out by a group of defensemen.

Linebackers and linemen prepare to make a stand.

More line of scrimmage battle action.

QB Aaron Rodgers (#12) lofts one in our direction.

WR DeAngelo Yancey (#16) makes a catch despite the coverage of CB Quinten Rollins (#24).

QB Taysom Hill (#8) at the line of scrimmage as he gets a turn at the helm.

It is always fun to watch a QB of Aaron Rodgers’ caliber.

WR Randall Cobb (#18) makes a catch despite the coverage of two defenders, including FS Morgan Burnett (#42).

No one is able to come up with this pass, neither WR Trevor Davis (#11), FS Jermaine Whitehead (#35), S Martin Evans, nor WR Max McCaffrey (#13).

QB Aaron Rodgers (#12) plays linebacker in this drill, which also includes on “defense,” WR Geronimo Allison (#81), and WR Jordy Nelson (#87), not shown.
