Gutekunst asked if Ty Montgomery will move back to WR. If not full time, sounds like it will be part of his training. “The beauty of having a guy like that is we can kind of plug him in where we need him.”
While scouting and evaluating process hasn’t changed, Gutekunst says #Packers approach to free agency has been “more extensive” this offseason than the past. More thorough conversations about the market. Another sign free agency will be more in play.
Gutekunst said #Packers were hoping arbitrator’s decision on Martellus Bennett retaining his signing bonus would turn out differently. On ramifications now that team won’t recoup prorated portion? “It doesn’t change the course of what we were trying to do.”
McCarthy on Brett Hundley: “We felt that he could’ve been better prepared. We have to make sure that doesn’t happen again.” Sounds very different than when Hundley initially replaced Aaron Rodgers last season.
Both McCarthy and Gutekunst are adamant that Jordy Nelson can still play. They didn’t sound like guys preparing for him to take a pay cut. Said it’s important to examine all factors in his diminished output.
