For the first time in a practice open to the media on Tuesday, kickers Mason Crosby and Giorgio Tavecchio competed head-to-head with dueling field goals.
Both kickers went 3-for-3, hitting from 38, 43 and 50 yards, all with plenty to spare. Leg strength has never been an issue with Crosby, and it doesn’t appear to be with Tavecchio either.
Later in practice, the offense went against the defense in a 7-on-7, two-minute drill. With the first units on the field, QB Aaron Rodgers hit WR James Jones down the seam inside the 5-yard line and then capped it off with a TD pass to WR Randall Cobb on a quick in route.
Then with the twos, QB Graham Harrell twice hit undrafted rookie WR Myles White to convert fourth downs and keep the drive alive. The second came moments after CB Loyce Means nearly got an interception to win the drill for the defense. Harrell then finished the drive with a TD pass to TE Brandon Bostick, who made a nice diving catch at the pylon.
