Photos from Day 1 of #Packers camp: TE Jace Sternberger stretches (but remains on the COVID-19 list for now); GM Brian Gutekunst and coach Matt LaFleur chat before practice; WR Davante Adams loosens up; ILB Christian Kirksey makes his Green Bay debut.
For subscribers: Drafting Rodgers’ possible successor a year early at least gives Gutekunst and LaFleur the flexibility of time.
