Packers | Still Looking for the Right Holder

Lori Nickel, of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, reports a glaring area of need for the Green Bay Packers is finding a holder for PK Ryan Longwell. "That holding job is still up in the air," special teams coach John Bonamego admitted. "That's still a big question mark right now. We'll get that figured out." On the second day of minicamp, Thursday June 2, QBs Aaron Rodgers and Craig Nall took equal turns at holding for Longwell, and the results were pretty bad. A third of the 35-yard attempts either missed to the left or were borderline to the left. One missed with Nall and two with Rodgers. "I'm OK joking about it the first minicamp. But this second minicamp, it's serious now. It's got to be a front-burner issue. It's instrumental," said Longwell. The Packers don't want to re-sign the holder Longwell likes, free agent P Bryan Barker.
