The weather was great for day two of training camp.

On the field, Aaron Rodgers had a couple of nice plays to his new tight ends Friday.  He hit Jimmy Graham for a bomb in stride and he also hit Mercedes Lewis for a big gain.

Back up quarterback Brett Hundley found Lance Kendricks in the seam for a nice gain. Rodgers could be seen today walking and talking at length with head coach Mike McCarthy today on the field. 

A pretty cool moment involving star linebacker Clay Matthews and a Packers fan some people may have missed today. 

The linebackers were running drills on the far end of the practice field, and when a little bit of break came on Matthew's walked off the field and over to a fan in the stands who was holding a sign.

He gave her a big hug up against the railing of the stands while people took pictures. That's something rarely you see at an NFL practice let alone with a star player. You could see the other linebackers in the group looking on admiration 

The running back group worked hard today in practice over to the side close to the media. And what makes these drills fun is Watching the Fun Loving Jamaal William's dancing in and out of the drills with a big smile on his face.

He said that the dancing helps him focus even though his running back coach may disagree.

In the locker room Friday wide receiver Randal Cobb told the media that he had surgery to remove cartilage from his right ankle which explains the walking boot that he was in before training camp.

With Jordy Nelson gone, it's up to Cobb and Davante Adams to teach and bring the other young receivers along. Former practice squad receiver Jake Kumerow is making plays early in camp.
