Training camp look in: Crosby perfect in kick competition

GREEN BAY–Mason Crosby would seem to be on the verge of retaining the job he’s held since 2007.

In a two-bout, high-stakes kicking competition in Tuesday’s practice at Ray Nitschke Field, Crosby converted all 14 of his field goal attempts. The distances in round one ranged from 33-58 yards and the kicks were into a light wind. In round two, the distances ranged from 35-64 yards and the kickers were downwind. Challenger Nick Ramirez was a combined six of 16, four of seven into the wind and two of nine downwind. He was afforded two extra kicks — both from 58 yards — in the downwind round, and failed to convert either one.

Tuesday’s practice, on possibly the hottest day of training camp, is the last of camp and must be followed by a roster reduction to 75 players by late this afternoon.

Packers.com will provide a full report following practice.
