Packers in hiatus until training camp on July 25

Sports

Matt LaFleur’s first offseason program is in the books, ending Thursday with a team-building activity.

The team’s mandatory mini-camp ran Tuesday through yesterday and Wednesday was the team’s last on-field workout.  Mini-camp is a time for veteran and rookies to learn LaFleur’s offensive system and defensive coordinator Mike Pettine’s schemes.

It’s a process, with the defense showcasing it was definitely ahead of the offense this spring.

“I think you always want more,” LaFleur told reporters after Wednesday’s mini-camp session, who is still recovering from his Achilles surgery but has not missed a beat.

“Even when they’re handing it (playbook and installs) well, you still want more.  So, I think we’re coming together.”

Players and coaches have now dispersed across the country to their respective homes for one last respite before the 2019 season officially opens with the start of training camp on July 25 in Green Bay.

In a personnel move late Friday afternoon, the Packers released running back Kapri Bibbs.  Bibbs, formerly of the Washington Redskins, was claimed by Green Bay off waivers on Dec. 17, 2018, and played in the final tow games of the regular season.
