Back with Pack, Madison says 'life was on the line'

Packers guard Cole Madison says he took time away from football last season to focus on his mental health: "I had to go help myself before my football career."

Packers GM Brian Gutekunst on why he brought potential first-round QB Drew Lock in for a visit and an Aaron Rodgers succession plan (which he called "a little bit overhyped): ""We value that position extremely highly. If you don't have one, it's very hard to win in this league... If that's the best thing for your team, you can't hesitate with that. ... We're lucky to have the best player in the NFL at that position right now, but at the same time your needs can change and you do your due diligence."

While the Packers have 10 picks in this year's draft, they're getting a bit of a bonus in offensive lineman Cole Madison, a fifth-rounder last year who stepped away from football for personal reasons right before training camp and missed the season. Madison was somewhat of a surprise return when the Packers opened the offseason program two weeks ago. Said GM Brian Gutekunst, “He looks like the 6-foot-5, 300 pounder that we drafted” and added that he probably “fits this scheme (under new coach Matt LaFleur) as much, if not more, than he did last year.”

Packers GM Brian Gutekunst said the team has not yet picked up the fifth-year option on DT Kenny Clark, but "I would expect that would happen. He's a dominant player on the defensive front."

Packers GM Brian Gutekunst said he closed the doors to the draft room this morning. "I wouldn't imagine there'd be a whole lot of changes between now and Thursday," said the second-year GM.

By claiming K Sam Ficken off waivers on Monday, it appears the Packers either want some competition for Mason Crosby or want to start planning for the future. Crosby is 34 years old but still was over 80 percent (30 of 37) on field goals last year. He's entering the final year of his contract. Ficken has kicked in just four career games for the Rams — two each in 2017 and 2018 — and is 3-for-6 in field goals and 14-of-15 on PATs. Seahawks signed him in January
