Brian Gutekunst made it no secret back in February that he wants to re-sign the likes Kenny Clark and David Bakhtiari but that could be tougher if the salary cap is lowered in the coming years due to revenue loss. "It's made it more difficult, but the priorities we had back then are still the priorities we have right now," he said.

Packers GM Brian Gutekunst on what happens to player evaluation if there's no college football season: "We're prepared on a number of different fronts to attack this. … There's going to be a draft, we're going to have to acquire players, we're just going to have to do it different ways."

One emphasis for the Packers in camp will be finding offensive consistency. Part of that, coach Matt LaFleur said, is having more carryover plays from week to week. "I think we have a better understanding of who we are, of what our players can do really well," LaFleur said Sunday. "And then it's just striving for that consistency. "We did have a pretty good stretch where we played really consistent football and then it was kind of hit-or-miss from there on out for the rest of the season."

Matt LaFleur still thinks the Packers will be able to hold training camp practices at the same time — around 10:15 a.m. — even with daily COVID testing. "It has presented some challenges; don't want to delay the day too long," LaFleur said. First practice is Saturday. He said he would like to implement at least one night practice given their early season night games in Weeks 3-4.

Za'Darius Smith treated the entire Packers' D to dinner (a $5,000 tab) at Republic Chophouse last year. He just realized today he can't do that this year under COVID-19 rules. "Wanted to get the guys together because we have tomorrow off so it's going to be hard but we're going to try to work something out here to where it's just positions and I guess less than 10 people right? Less than 10 to 15 people. So basically positions, each position will have their own little gathering."

Preston Smith, who played his first four years in Washington, on no fans in the stands for at least the first two home games at Lambeau: "My first four years in the league, there weren't that many fans in the stands anyway. Might be kind of normal again."

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Weird to see Preston Smith without Za'Darius Smith – Z's Zoom call is coming up after Preston's – but might the Packers need to play less of them in 2020? Za'Darius played 980 snaps last season and Preston played 970. Preston has never missed a game in his career but with Rashan Gary also in the fold, could less snaps for the Smiths mean even more production? "Being fresh… then you start see a lot more higher production, and if me and Z get more production we'll break records," Preston said

New Packers tackle Rick Wagner, a Wisconsin native, said it was a "pretty easy decision" to sign here as a free agent after playing for the Ravens and Lions. He still makes his home in West Allis but said he "really only went to two (Packers) game was a kid and both were preseason games." He also he came to training camp and "got a couple of autographs from a couple of linemen like me."

The Packers' first practice is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 15. The "gradual ramp-up period" can actually start Aug. 12 and contact days on Aug. 17. “We do have a schedule mapped out," coach Matt LaFleur said. "Kind of like I told you guys the other day thought it's going to be very, very fluid. We've got to get a good feel for where our guys are at."

Hard to imagine any team keeping only two QBs like the Packers did in 2019. Matt LaFleur essentially confirmed they'll keep the three currently on the roster: Aaron Rodgers, Tim Boyle, Jordan Love. Packers cut fourth QB Jalen Morton. "Difficult to get four guys reps and especially meaningful reps where they can go out and you can see that improvement. So with the three guys we wanted to focus on,the three that we have that we know we're going to have, I believe, on our roster," LaFleur said.

A lot of talk about players opting out, but what about coaches? "That's something we talked to all of our staff members about, just making sure they felt comfortable with the situation and protocols in place," Packers coach Matt LaFIeur said. "I don't think any of these guys had any reservations and I talked to each guy individually."

Corey Linsley, who plays in the trenches as the Packers center, said he doesn't anticipate wearing a face shield to cover his facemask but ... "If that's something our trainers come to us (and say it could reduce COVID transmission), then for sure that's something I would consider," Linsley said. "But I haven't heard anything like that."

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Last time Corey Linsley was in a contract year, the Packers signed him to extension the last week of the regular season – Dec. 30, 2017 – the day after Davante Adams signed an extension. Now, the veteran center is one of five starters in a contract year, along with must re-signs David Bakhtiari and Kenny Clark plus Aaron Jones and Kevin King. "I have no idea what's going to happen," he said. "Just playing out the year."

PTI: Should Pelicans keep pushing Zion?

Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon weigh in on if the Pelicans should keep pushing Zion Williamson, how many more days will we have left for baseball, if Aaron Rodgers is at peace with his place on the Packers and more.

Without the ability to stay in the dorms at St. Norbert College, Packers coach Matt LaFleur is allowing veterans to stay at home, while rookies are all staying in a local hotel for the duration of training camp. Also, LaFleur said the Packers are currently at 80 on the roster -- since COVID-19 reserve players don't count — so instead of splitting up, they were able to work all together on Tuesday at Lambeau Field.

Here's how Davante Adams thinks Aaron Rodgers will handle the addition of Jordan Love. It's the typical, thoughtful answer you'd expect from the Packers' Pro Bowl receiver:

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Davante Adams said he "weighed options" when it came to opting out, "and here I am today." "I have no plans of opting out at this point," he said. "I love the game. I love my teammates and I've put a lot into this. I think about my legacy when it's all said and done. This is a tricky time in the world, but it's something I truly believe we can not necessarily run from."

Rodgers shies away from conjecture about future

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers reiterated Monday that he doesn't "know what the future holds" in terms of his time in Green Bay, but he once again acknowledged, "I think if I retire on the team's timeline, then all is well."

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Aaron Rodgers hasn't wavered from his stance on how his time in Green Bay might end now that the Packers have drafted Jordan Love. “If I retire on the team's timeline then all is well but if they're looking to move on before I'm ready to be done playing, there's an impasse at that point. … That's what I said to you guys Day 1 when we [first] talked about it.”
