The Packers began their offseason program on Monday and guard Cole Madison was one of the players to report to work.

Whether Madison would be among the players listening to Matt LaFleur’s first address to the team since being hired as their head coach in January was up in the air earlier this year. Madison stepped away from the team before training camp to deal with personal issues and did not return at any point during the season.

General Manager Brian Gutekunst said earlier this year that the team hoped Madison would return and, according to multiple reports, Madison was back with the team on Monday and has been reinstated to the team’s roster.

Madison was a fifth-round pick out of Washington State last year.

  1. Oh yeah, this kid! He impressed a lot of people. I wonder what happened? I’m glad he’s got his head back on. It’s lucky for him an all-new mindtrust will be in-place. He’s got as good a chance as any new fifth-rounder, and could possibly enable the Pack an extra “pick” if things work out (so to speak.)

  2. Cole took a step back to mourn the death of his friend and QB at Washington State, Tyler Hilinski. Glad to see he has been able to put that behind him, and he will be a welcome addition to the Packers’ O-line. If he plays to his potential, he’ll be starting at some point. But at the very least, he’ll be a quality backup. Welcome back, Cole.

  3. I was in love with this pick where we got him. I was so disappointed when he got hurt, not because I wanted him to start, but I thought he could be a valuable rotational piece. Unfortunately, we needed every body imaginable last year.

    It took him a whole year to be convinced to come to Green Bay?

    His friend died.

    Have some class.

    I know I’m asking a lot from a Bear fan.

    He’s a Vikings fan that has like 50 screen names, 2 of which are in these comments.

    Vikings fans have zero class. It’s science.

    Oh, never mind; we have no chance to expect class from him/her.
