Mike McCarthy revealed the Packers plan to move tackle Bryan Bulaga back to right tackle, allowing David Bakhtiari, who is entering his second NFL season, to stay on the left side.

McCarthy also told reporters that defensive back Micah Hyde will be on the field all of the time.  McCarthy didn’t reveal where Hyde would line up, but said he deserved the opportunity to compete.

McCarthy said the Packers will report for off-season workouts on April 22nd and said there will be changes to the training camp schedule.  The coach didn’t discuss those changes, but said he didn’t like the way the team came out of camp last year.

McCarthy also said he would like to see the Packers resign backup QB Matt Flynn and fullback John Kuhn.
