    And I thought OTA's were suppose to be non-contact eh.. I guessing "bumping" into someone might be over-looked.

    Don't beat them up in June Mike..

    *Malone, LB A.J. Hawk and DE Jason Hunter batted down passes during team drills.

    * MLB Nick Barnett returned to practice after skipping it last week.

    * With starting CBs Charles Woodson and Al Harris on the field at the same time, Tramon Williams was the third CB in the nickel package.

    * Orrin Thompson continues to work at LT while veteran Chad Clifton rests. Allen Barbre worked at LG with the first unit.

    * TE Tory Humphrey, who made his OTA debut Tuesday, opened team (11-on-11) periods alongside starter Donald Lee in a two-tight set with the No. 1 offense.

    * Junius Coston is getting a lot of work at center, including some today with the No. 1 offense. But he was yanked after an illegal snap during the blitz period.

    * S Nick Collins intercepted Rodgers over the middle during a team period. Rodgers was sandwiched on the play and ended up on the ground. It was tough to tell whether the contact affected the throw, but coach Mike McCarthy said it shouldn't have been made regardless.

    * Rookie QB Matt Flynn started 0-for-4 passing during team drills before finally hitting Chris Francies, who slipped behind Jarrett Bush at the left sideline.

    * Tramon Williams and rookie Jordy Nelson took the first reps as kick returners. A bunch of others rotated in, including Brandon Jackson, Vernand Morency, DeShawn Wynn, Brett Swain, Taj Smith and Kregg Lumpkin.

    wow, im sure glad he didn't pop the knee or something.

    Safety? strong safety of free safety? Do we need depth at safety

    haha... i swear i had high hopes for Bush. but it seemed last year that he gave up a ton of TD's when he was one on one with someone.

    hes still young though.

    maybe the coaches are gonna keep him on roster as a utility guy in the secondary. a guy that could fill in in a pinch or maybe Safety would be a better fit for him.

    Bush gets in good position but he is just too small to ever be the #1 choice.

    One guy to backup two positions isn't exactly ideal depth. Injury bugs bite, and when they do, it's usually in swarms...

    This position I'd like to see. Who replaces Koren? So it looks like T Williams and Nelson so far as our KR starters.

    That was the most exciting news out of those blurbs. Remember when Davenport would return kicks and he'd utterly destroy the first person who tried to tackle him? That's what Wynn does. He likely won't break any(1 at the most) for TDs, but it should get consistent field position. He wouldn't do any flashy side-to-side moves. North-South and someone and gets knocked out at the end of it.

    I hope he gets the job.

    I really want to say something at this point, but I just don't have it in me tonight.

    The mental image of Daryn Colledge getting knocked ***-over-teakettle by a backup DE should be a funny one, but somehow... it just isn't. Not looking good. Maybe soon he'll be backing up Clifton like he should be.

    I think Colledge is slow getting out of his set stance, I think I remarked about that somepoint last year.. and playing interior line you are almost always going to be resting alot of your weight forward in the stance.. where playing tackle, you can sit a little bit further back in your stance and thus may help Colledge along as well.. not to mention he plays with his pads too high in general to be an interior lineman..

    Overall he isn't a guard, plain an simple IMO and as others have said, he could play in relief but I don't think he will ever be a top shelf guard in this league.. now outside he at least has a "punchers" chance..

    You know, I thought about it a bit after I posted. The OTAs are supposed to be half-speed and non-contact. What probably happened was that Thompson got a little more fired up than he should have and caught Colledge by surprise. (At that's what I hope happened.)

    Oh yeah. Davenport never got past the 35 yard-line, but the guy tackling him would lose 10-15 hit points. That was worth watching.
