It’s here. The Green Bay Packers’ home opener has arrived

Darnell Savage Jersey 2019 , as they host the Minnesota Vikings today in a week two matchup. The two teams come in with matching 1-0 records, with Minnesota defeating the Atlanta Falcons at home in week one and the Packers opening the season with a 10-3 victory over the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field.Today, the two teams will decide the early leader in the NFC North. The Packers’ defense looks resurgent after that win a week ago, with all of the team’s new additions having big games. Za’Darius Smith and Preston Smith in particular were forces against the Bears’ offensive line, and they will have opportunities to feast once again against a Vikings line that is missing one starter in Pat Elflein.Meanwhile, the Packers’ passing game will look to get on track. They will have a great opportunity to do so this week, with the Vikings missing two of their top four cornerbacks. Starters Xavier Rhodes and Trae Waynes are in the lineup, but CB3 and CB4 Mackensie Alexander and Mike Hughes are both injured and inactive. Add in another injury to starting linebacker Ben Gedeon and there is a recipe for success if Aaron Rodgers and Matt LaFleur can get in sync.Join us for the game here as we follow along with Packers-Vikings.Game UpdatesA Twitter List by TexWestern The team will have numerous unsigned players in for tryouts this week.

Here are three who have a good shot at getting a contract.CDTShareTweetShareShareThree tryout players who could make the Packers’ roster after rookie minicampJoe Camporeale-USA TODAY SportsRookie minicamp means very different things to players in different situations. For players who were selected in the NFL Draft, a roster spot is assured at least through training camp. These players will spend the next several days acclimating to the NFL and specifically to their new team’s way of doing business.A second group of players is made up of those who went undrafted but who agreed to contracts with their new teams. For these individuals, the weekend is time to pass a physical and sign their contract Darnell Savage Jersey Mens , followed by a chance to make an early impression on the coaching staff and stake a claim at a spot in competition for a roster spot come training camp. Group three is players who have been in the NFL for a year, but who did not play enough experience to count as an accrued season; these players are largely looking to get an extra few days of practice in before OTAs begin.Finally, there are tryout players. These individuals come to minicamp without a contract, looking to make a mark on the team and earn a spot on the 90-man roster. As of this weekend, the Green Bay Packers have two roster spots unaccounted for, so barring any additional cuts the team’s large group of tryout players will be fighting for that pair of slots.While the Packers typically provide a full roster to the media on the first day of rookie minicamp practice — which will be Friday — we already know the names of several players who will be attendance on a tryout basis. Here are three of those names who should be leading contenders to claim an open roster spot heading into the weekend.Deion Harris, DB, North DakotaA big defensive back at 6-foot-2 and 201 pounds, Harris could be a candidate to play either cornerback or safety. The latter might be the better fit for him given some speed concerns (4.64 40 at Pro Day), but his 3-cone time of 6.84 seconds suggests a change-of-direction ability that could be useful in the slot or covering twitchy tight ends. Harris recorded nine interceptions in college Youth Darnell Savage Jersey , including three pick-sixes in 2016, in addition to 38 total pass breakups. There are ball skills here to build on.Cole Tracy, K, LSUTracy spent one year with the Tigers in 2018 as a graduate transfer after kicking at Division II Assumption College to begin his college career. Over his final two seasons — 2017 at Assumption and 2018 at LSU — Tracy hit 56 of 62 field goal attempts and did not miss a PAT in 109 tries. That’s quite an impressive hit rate, and he seems to have a plenty strong leg to convert from 50-plus yards with regularity. If he does well this weekend, Tracy very well could earn a contract after minicamp and get an opportunity to compete with Mason Crosby this summer. If not, he’ll have another minicamp invite next week with the Saints to take another shot.Jamarius Way, WR, South AlabamaWay could be a nice fit for the Packers, given their recent preference towards larger wideouts. At 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds Jamaal Williams Jersey , he has a big frame and has used that to make plays in the Sun Belt conference over the past two years since South Alabama moved up to FBS. Way had more than 750 receiving yards in each of the past two seasons, averaging 15 yards per reception for his career. In a way, he’s reminiscent of Geronimo Allison, in that neither player worked out well but both had great college production to fall back on. Even if he’s not an exceptional athlete (4.63 40, 32.5” vert), that production is well worth a look this weekend.
