GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It wasn't quite a Lambeau Leap, but Packers wide receiver Tori Gurley did the next best thing during Day 4 of Packers training camp.
Practicing across the street from Lambeau Field at the team's outdoor facility, Ray Nitschke Field, Gurley got up-close and personal with a few of the approximately 2,000 fans in attendance.
Gurley, Green Bay's tallest receiver at 6-foot-4, was matched up one-on-one on the outside against rookie cornerback Casey Hayward. With Aaron Rodgers at quarterback, the NFL MVP lobbed a fade pass to Gurley from 20 yards out into the end zone and Gurley went up and caught it for a touchdown.
Rodgers gave a little fist pump, but Gurley was in the mood for more of a celebration. After waving his arms to the crowd to get them on their feet, Gurley did a small leap near the front row over the 3-foot high wall.
"I'm just having fun," Gurley said. "I see how (Donald) Driver gets the crowd going. I was like, you know what, I can do the same myself. It's just more motivation. Every time I catch a ball I kind of wink at somebody and just enjoy myself.
"I'm blessed to be here. A lot of guys wish they could be in my shoes. I'm going to take advantage of it."
As an undrafted rookie, Gurley spent last season on the Packers practice squad. The former University of South Carolina wideout had an opportunity to leave Green Bay and join the Minnesota Vikings' active roster late in the year, but declined the offer.
The Packers kept five wide receivers on the active roster last season, and with Driver returning on a restructured contract, that entire group is back for 2012. Pending a trade or an injury, the only other way for Gurley to make the team this year is if coach Mike McCarthy chooses to keep six or seven receivers.
But if Gurley is able to make the 53-man roster, he's already planning to upgrade from the miniature version of what he pulled off during Monday's practice.
"I look forward to Lambeau Leaping pretty soon," Gurley said.
