    Monday Cheese Curds: Keeping up with the Packers’ Joneses

    Three rounds apart in the 2017 NFL Draft, the Green Bay Packers drafted a pair of players who share a last name. Second-round safety Josh Jones and fifth-round running back Aaron Jones aren’t related — after all, Jones is an awfully common name — but the two are both in Green Bay this week for the start of OTAs and both are excited to kick off their NFL careers.

    Bears may be changing Kyle Long’s position again

    The last time the Chicago Bears asked Kyle Long to change positions, it was a week before the 2015 season opener against the Green Bay Packers. Long went form right guard to right tackle that season, and even though he had some growing pains, he settled into his new role and made the Pro Bowl for a third straight year. He wasn’t an initial selection, but he got the nod as an alternate. Long has always said he’d play wherever the team needed him to play, so he may be on the move again. The Chicago Tribune is reporting that “the Bears are in the process of shifting Long to left guard for the 2017 season.” This would necessitate a flip between Long and Josh Sitton, who played in the Pro Bowl last
