Training Camp begins with a lot of optimism and apprehension. Optimism in the fact that the season has begun once again and the Packers are looking to make another run at a Super Bowl Championship. The apprehension comes from the bad news that happens at seemingly every team’s training camp. A player has either come in out of shape and failed his physical, or they have suffered a serious injury and practice and will not be able to play during the season.
Enter Mike Neal.
Neal is a player that has teased Packers fans over the years. He has shown tantalizing potential, but has what Coach Mike McCarthy famously calls availability issues.

Clay Matthews is the star of the defense, and the Packers need second-year players Nick Perry and Dezman Moses to step up.
The Green Bay Packers have signed top draft pick defensive end Datone Jones and safety Ryan McMahon on Thursday.
Jones was selected 26th overall in April out of UCLA, where he made a career-high 62 tackles (45 solo), including 19 tackles for loss, and a career-best 6 1/2 sacks in 2012. He has said the defense run by the Packers is similar to what he played in at UCLA.
