Here's how Davante Adams thinks Aaron Rodgers will handle the addition of Jordan Love. It's the typical, thoughtful answer you'd expect from the Packers' Pro Bowl receiver:

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Davante Adams said he "weighed options" when it came to opting out, "and here I am today." "I have no plans of opting out at this point," he said. "I love the game. I love my teammates and I've put a lot into this. I think about my legacy when it's all said and done. This is a tricky time in the world, but it's something I truly believe we can not necessarily run from."

Rodgers shies away from conjecture about future

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers reiterated Monday that he doesn't "know what the future holds" in terms of his time in Green Bay, but he once again acknowledged, "I think if I retire on the team's timeline, then all is well."

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Aaron Rodgers hasn't wavered from his stance on how his time in Green Bay might end now that the Packers have drafted Jordan Love. “If I retire on the team's timeline then all is well but if they're looking to move on before I'm ready to be done playing, there's an impasse at that point. … That's what I said to you guys Day 1 when we [first] talked about it.”

Yesterday Matt LaFleur said he sees Aaron Rodgers being with the Packers for "a really long time." When asked how he would define a "long time," Rodgers said: "I savor every moment, every season. … I don't know what the future holds. I know I can control this year and my play and my approach and my attitude."

Aaron Rodgers thinks the things the Packers have in place "gives us a really good chance" of making it through a season without a positive test but added everyone needs to be "smart with their interactions for the NFL plan to work."

Packers long snapper Hunter Bradley has been added to the COVID-19 reserve list. He's the fifth Green Bay player on the list -- and second specialist along with kicker Mason Crosby. The others are TE Jace Sternberger, DT Treyvon Hester and OLB Greg Roberts. They'll all need a series of negative tests to return to the facility.

The Packers now have just three quarterbacks on the roster -- Aaron Rodgers, Jordan Love and Tim Boyle -- after they released rookie Jalen Morton on Monday. They had signed him after the draft as a rookie free agent out of Prairie View A&M. They also waived FB Elijah Wellman, who was signed in January after stints with Washington in 2018 and 2019.

Kenny Clark on life away from Lambeau with the COVID-19: "I think you've got to hold yourself accountable and constantly preach that to the team. If we want to continue to play, if we want a chance to have everyone available and have a chance to compete for a Super Bowl, we have to handle our business the right way... I'm going to do my best to stay inside."

Kenny Clark said the Packers defensive line is still in the same meeting room. "We're just spread out more," he said. Some of the bigger meetings -- the whole defensive meeting -- take place in the CRIC, which is the Packers' indoor walk-through field.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Asked Packers DT Kenny Clark what'll happen if someone tries to run the ball 42 times like the 49ers did in the NFC title game. "We picked the wrong time to have the worst game; everybody picked the wrong time to have their worst game. But this year, we don't plan on guys being able to run the ball, whatever, 42 times on us. You know, we're going to fix some stuff just all around with our defense and just excited about the guys in our room, excited about the guys that we brought in."

From yesterday's Zoom call, it sure sounds like the Packers have decided to move on from veteran cornerback Tramon Williams, who remains unsigned. "I have great respect for Tramon, what he's done here," GM Brian Gutekunst said. "We're certainly very aware of where he is. No updates at this time, but I have a lot of respect for Tramon and what he brings to the table.” It means the Packers likely will go with Chandon Sullivan and/or Josh Jackson as their nickel cornerback.

Matt LaFleur said he has "floated" the idea of isolating the quarterbacks -- perhaps even from each other -- and have a "quarantined backup" who would be kept separate from the team. "We have not made a decision on that. That's not out of the realm of possibility."

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Packers coach Matt LaFleur said they're trying to make Lambeau "the safest place in Green Bay." "If we're going to have football this year, it's going to take a lot of self-discipline. ... If they choose to go out in public, mask up."

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Packers GM Brian Gutekunst said it's going to be really hard for players to look at their teammates if they're not making the right choices when they leave Lambeau Field. "For us to accomplish what we want to accomplish, guys are going to have make right choices when they leave the building. ... Not just players, but everyone will have to make good choices when they leave the building. ... At the same time, we're going to have positive tests and it might not be their fault."

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Packers GM Brian Gutekunst on how they'll evaluate players -- especially young players -- without preseason games: "I think there will be different opportunities though practice and things that will allow us to put guys in position to make decisions and play at a different tempo. ...We'll have to create the markers on our own. Practices may be a little more physical, a little more team and one-on-one (drills), but we'll have to create those."

For now, the Packers are stick with the 90-man roster and will split the squad to start training camp. Teams have the option of that or going with 80 and working more closely together. Packers GM Brian Gutekunst said right now they're at about 83 players plus the guys on the COVID/reserve list.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Packers GM Brian Gutekunst said he has not had any other players besides Devin Funchess inform the team that they intend to opt out this season.

Packers sixth-round G Simon Stepaniak and undrafted free agent RB Patrick Taylor were placed on the non-football injury list. No surprise with Stepaniak, who had an ACL injury during the last week of his college season. This is likely a redshirt year for him. LB Curtis Bolton (coming off a preseason ACL tear last preseason) and T Yosh Nijman were declared physically unable to perform.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

The Packers have waived OL Cole Madson and FB Jordan Jones, per a source. Tough deal for Madison, who came back last year after sitting out as a rookie for mental health reasons and then got hurt late last year. He blew out his knee in a November practice.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

As veterans are reporting, three Packers landed on the COVID-19 reserve list: K Mason Crosby, TE Jace Sternberger and DT Treyvon Hester. It means they either tested positive or have been in close contact with someone who has. Good news is they don't have any on-field practices until Aug. 12.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

After drafting H-back/TE Josiah Deguara in the third round, the Packers added another player at that position: H-back John Lovett off waivers from the Chiefs. This is another indication of how coach Matt LaFleur's offense could evolve and more closely resemble the 49ers.
