The Packers are hoping Montgomery can boost their return game after averaging 19.8 yards per punt return and 25.2 yards per kick return last year in college.

My ability to be versatile kind of sets me apart."
Packers | Ty Montgomery exudes confidence

Packers | HC talks Brett Hundley
Green Bay Packers QB Brett Hundley has the tools to be a successful NFL quarterback when his time comes, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. "[Hundley has] the ability to play beyond the designed play, the 2.3 seconds that everything's designed to go a certain way, get into extended plays and things like that, Brett has a ton of that," McCarthy said. While Hundley know he won't be taking Aaron Rodgers' place soon, he's still ready for when that time comes and will improve in the meantime. "I have a lot of confidence in my abilities, and I know what I can and have to work on."

A couple other guys like (Rob Gronkowski) and a couple guys who are up there. I put myself in that bracket. That's definitely where I'm training to be."

Packers | Eddie Lacy will see limited touches
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy will have his touches limited next season in order to keep him healthy during the season, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. "I'm conscientious of how many times each guy touches the ball, how much each guy plays, especially the running back. I think you have to be smart there," McCarthy said. McCarthy indicated he is not looking for Lacy to abandon his physical running style.
Packers | Aaron Rodgers to run pistol often?
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers may be regularly in the pistol formation in 2015, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. The Packers used the formation often after Rodgers suffered a calf injury in 2014 in order to take stress off his leg. "I like the pistol," McCarthy said during a break at the NFL owners meetings this week. "I think there's a lot of value regardless of the injury to Aaron. I know he likes it. There's a place for it year-round in your offense." McCarthy hasn't used the pistol formation for a read-option offense, and it's unlikely McCarthy will ask Rodgers to become a read-option quarterback. The pistol formation would add an element of unpredictability to the Packers offense.

Packers | More responsibilities for Aaron Rodgers
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has had more freedom to change plays pre-snap in recent seasons, and head coach Mike McCarthy giving up play-calling duties puts even more responsibility in the hands of Rodgers in running the offense. McCarthy and assistant coach Tom Clements will have more preparation to do during the week to make sure Rodgers has plenty of pre-snap options at his disposal. However, it's hard to know how the offensive setup will work with Clements as the primary playcaller.
Packers | Greg Jennings not expected back with GB
Free-agent WR Greg Jennings (Vikings) likely will not sign with the Green Bay Packers this offseason unless he is willing to accept the No. 4 wide receiver job, in the opinion of Pete Dougherty, of the Green Bay Press-Gazette.
