Settling In

Posted by Dane Randolph:

Saturday I drove from Owings Mills to Green Bay. Totaling 15 hours of driving time and over 900 miles, I found myself in what I plan on calling my new home. The drive was not bad; it's comparable to the many trips I used to make from Maryland to Jacksonville and other parts of Florida.

I have been through two days of the Green Bay Packers rookie offseason week. So far, our first two days have been very extensive, working out with the training staff, putting in the offense and doing position drills. From 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. we are at Lambeau Field, where everything is centralized, from meetings, practice, weight lifting, the training room, the dining room, the locker room, and much more.

It's just been the first two days, and I have been doing well physically and mentally. The biggest difference between college and professional football is the pace and speed of literally everything, not just the game play. At this level, meetings are filled with more information than on average and taught at a faster pace.

I can't wait to see how the rest of the week will be, and I'm really excited to see the veterans come back next week.
