ending loss to San Francisco.  The Packers begin their off-season conditioning program today.  That program covers the next 10-weeks and includes strength and conditioning, infield drill work without pads or helmets, followed by some time with helmets near the end.

The session will also include a 3-day mandatory minicamp in early June.

With the arrival of the players could very well be the eventual announcement of new deals for quarterback Aaron Rodgers and linebacker Clay Matthews.  They’re expected to sign contract extensions that will tie up a big portion of the Packers’ remaining salary cap space.
