Mandatory minicamp won't be very "mandatory" in Green Bay this week.
When the time for mandatory minicamp rolled around last year, Packers coach Mike McCarthy excused all players with five or more years of experience from those practices.
Last year, any player with at least five years of National Football League experience was given the week off. This policy was in place for the final OTA practice last week, as well.

With the Packers set to play in the Hall of Fame Game past year, McCarthy cited the longer than usual training camp as the reason why the veterans wouldn't be on the field. They are: quarterback Aaron Rodgers, receivers Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, tight ends Martellus Bennett and Lance Kendricks plus offensive linemen Don Barclay, Bryan Bulaga and Jahri Evans on offense; safety Morgan Burnett, cornerback Davon House defensive linemen Mike Daniels, Ricky Jean Francois and Letroy Guion plus linebackers Nick Perry and Clay Matthews on defense; and kicker Mason Crosby.
Rodgers was one of 16 veterans excused from the team's three-day minicamp by McCarthy.
"So that's the starting point. That's really the baseline of the decision, and I thought it definitely was a win-win for everybody".
