Packers minicamp: 16 veterans excused

While other NFL teams are dealing with star players staying away from minicamp over contract disputes, the Green Bay Packers have excused 16 veteran players from this week’s three-day “mandatory minicamp.”

Today at Ray Nitschke Field, safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix returned to the team after missing organized team activities. Clinton-Dix told us that he was dealing with a personal issue and the death of his godmother, as we discussed last week.

Hear what Clinton-Dix said today in the Locker Room at 4:15 PM on SportsLine.
