NFL teams can run their offseason programs through June 26, but Matt LaFleur and the Green Bay Packers will be ending their program this week.
LaFleur told Packers.com that this will be the final week. He mentioned they held a big team meeting on Monday with Charles Woodson giving the group an “exceptional speech” according to LaFleur. The rest of this week is for review and then off until training camp.
Matt LaFleur said on the virtual offseason program the team has gone through: “These guys are pros. I think it’s safe to say they’d all rather be in Green Bay, be in the building, be around each other, going out on the grass, competing on a daily basis, but it is what it is. We’ve got to make the best of it. I thought our guys did a really good job of taking advantage of that.”
LaFleur said about Rodgers: “We had so many great conversations, really we were able to talk out, and talk through, every concept that we run, both in the run game and pass game. The expectations of every play. Certainly he’s got a lot of experience and we always want his input.”
The Packers are coming off a 13-3 2019 season and a NFC Title game appearance. It was an unexpected run in LaFleur’s first year as head coach and it means that fans will be wanting more this fall.
“Certainly we know that the 2020 season is going to come with some high expectations and our guys are going to embrace that and put their best foot forward,” LaFleur said.
