Packers move in for start of Training Camp


The Green Bay Packers will begin Training Camp on Tuesday, July 26th, but before then, they'll partake in quite a tradition.

On Sunday, the rookies and veterans alike packed their bags and arrived at St. Norbert College in De Pere.

Continuing a 59 year tradition, all of the players will call the college dorms home for the length of camp.

From the dorms, they'll shuttle between campus and Lambeau Field's training facilities for practice and team meetings.

It may seem odd to have millionaires lodging in a college dorm, but such is a unique part of the Packers' history. As for the rookies, its just status quo. 

"I'm pretty used to dorms right now coming straight from it but, I mean, being back in a college setting and play football, its great," said draft pick and rookie wide receiver, Trevor Davis.
