The Packers will have decisions to make about the receiver corps at the end of August. All of Packernation will be waiting with bated breath to see who makes the roster and who heads to the practice squad or packs his bags. With returning Badgers red-shirt (his jersey was literally red two seasons ago) Jared Abbrederis and second year active Jeff Janis squaring off against third round draft choice Ty Montgomery, the wide receiver battle will clearly be one of the best in training camp.
