The Collective Bargaining Agreement is in the past and football is in the air. NFL teams have been opening training camps over the last few days, and no where is that more important than in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Before at least 1,500 fans, and many children on their bikes, the Packers started their defense of their Super Bowl Championship under the lights outside the Don Hutson Training Facility. In the picture is Bryan Bulaga. Bulaga is a former Iowa Hawkeye who is starting his second year on the offensive line for the Green and Gold.
Bulaga isn't the only former Hawkeye associated with the Packers. Offensive Coordinator, Joe Philbin previously was the offensive line coach for the Hawkeyes from 1999-2002. Richie Williams who played defensive back at Iowa in the mid-2000s is also a scout for the Packers.
More on this night in Green Bay later as soon as I have the right cable to transfer pictures from my camera. Below is the first team play for the 2011 Packers in camp. (I don't have the same angles that I do for Hawkeye Football practice).
