Originally expected to mostly sit as a rookie, second round Packers defensive end Mike Neal may have a bigger role than anticipated following Johnny Jolly’s year-long suspension.
Neal will be at training camp on time to get work started. Neal announced on Monday that he agreed to terms just four minutes after Jason Wilde of ESPN Milwaukee asked Neal about his status on Twitter.
Expect reporters around the country to suddenly start copying Wilde’s approach.
A penetrating tackle in college at Purdue with occasionally inconsistent effort, Neal will move to 3-4 end in Green Bay.
