Packers and Jordy Nelson have struck a deal. It’s a 4-year extension worth $39 million.

So close to the $10 million per that Nelson was seeking. So close. This deal locks up Nelson and obviously makes him one happy receiver. he and Aaron Rodgers have a fantastic rapport on the field and have partnered up for over 3,300 yards and 30 touchdowns over the last three seasons. There is no reason to think they can't do it again for another four.

Mike Neal and Nick Perry start camp on the physically unable to perform list. 

Neither is expected to be out long and both will get their shots in training camp once healthy. Both should land jobs as reserves, but neither is on the radar for IDP leagues.

Jordy Nelson wants a deal worth at least $10 million per season.

Well Jordy, like my granddaddy always used to say, "You can wish in one hand and crap in the other and see which one fills up first." Good luck with your search for $10 million per, big guy.

Packers have signed linebacker Korey Jones.

Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers said LB Julius Peppers may move around on the defense and play a "hybrid" type role for the team.

Peppers is entering his age-34 season and is still playing at a relatively high level. No matter what his role is, he should be productive for Green Bay this season.

Green Bay Packers elect to keep five running backs on the roster, there is a wide open battle behind RBs Eddie Lacy, James Starks, DuJuan Harris and FB John Kuhn. RBs Michael Hill, Raijon Neal, LaDarius Perkins and Ina Liaina will try to prove they belong during training camp and the preseason.

No matter who the Packers decide to keep on the roster after final cuts, the fact remains outside of Lacy, there is going to be little carries to go around. With a healthy Aaron Rodgers back in the mix, the Packers running game could take another step forward in 2014, considering opposing teams will not be able to stack the box against Lacy, like we saw throughout the 2013 season. Until training camp opens, prospective Lacy owners will want to keep a close eye on the backup situation to determine who will be the handcuff to add late in this year's drafts.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy wants Eddie Lacy to be able to stay on the field for all three downs in order to prevent substitutions from slowing down the offense. 

Earlier this offseason McCarthy was quoted as saying he wanted to run 75 players per game. For context, "fast" offenses New England and Denver averaged 71.1 and 72.2 plays per game respectively. It seems like the arrival of Chip Kelly and the success of teams like the Pats and the Ponies is influencing the league at large. Look for other teams to adopt the hurry up as well.
