Jets, Packers to practice together in August

The LaFleur brothers will be working in different places this August, but they will get a chance to spend some time together before the regular season gets underway.

Brian Costello of the New York Post reports that offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur and the Jets will travel to Wisconsin to work out with the Matt LaFleur-coached Packers on August 18 and 19. The two teams will play a preseason game at Lambeau Field on August 21.

Ties between the coaching staffs go beyond the brothers. Matt LaFleur was on the 49ers staff with Robert Saleh before moving on to become the Titans’ offensive coordinator in 2019.

August’s practices will give Jets first-round pick Zach Wilson further opportunity to work against an opposing defense as he prepares for the regular season. The same will be true for Packers quarterback Jordan Love, although we’ll still need to see what Aaron Rodgers decides to do before saying whether Love will be preparing for a starting job.

  1. I can’t imagine how sloppy these practices will be.

  2. Two teams going completely in opposite directions. Jets are building a good roster while green bay has a great Quarterback and not much else.

    ********
    Sloppy, really?
    If you’re interested in sloppy, just think back to any Viking regular season game last season.
    You remember, as they were slogging their way to another pathetic 7-9 season. 🤣

  4. I’ll be there.🤙👏 They better keep it open for those practices. See ya at Ray Nitschke👍

    It’s the truth. Who would have thought!

  7. Viking fans posting as if they’re the ones who went to the championship game while we finished 3rd. Hilarious.

  8. “green bay has a great Quarterback and not much else.”

    Besides Rodgers, three players in the PFF top 50. Nobody had more.

  9. Seems rather appropriate that two teams slated to be in last place of their respective divisions will be practicing together. Perhaps they can form a support group.

  10. Our Vikes would have to go up against the Jets to have two last place teams competing.
