Parking is available in the lot on Lambeau Field’s east side near the Oneida Nation Gate, which can be accessed off Oneida Street and Lombardi Avenue.

    The sale will feature the traditional mix of Pro Shop items greatly reduced in price and other special purchases.

    The team’s football operations staff also has provided Packers team apparel no longer in use, including a large assortment of t-shirts, shorts, jackets, jerseys and pants. Some items are practice-worn gear not normally available in the Pro Shop.

    The tent sale began in 1994 in the parking lot outside the former Pro Shop on the north end of Lambeau Field and grew into a popular event. Now in its 11th year in the Atrium, the tent sale also was held in the west side stadium concourse in previous years.

Rodgers was No. 1 on this list last year and has therefore made the Top 10 for the second straight year. His ranking will be revealed on Thursday.

Four Packers in Top 100 so far; how many more?

Posted by Mike Spofford on June 7, 2012 – 3:46 pm

The NFL Network’s Top 100 players series has only 30 players left to reveal. Thus far in the first 70 (100 through 31), four Packers have made the list.

Here’s the recap:

No. 92, FB John Kuhn
No. 80, WR Jordy Nelson
No. 56, WR Greg Jennings
No. 36, CB Charles Woodson

Based on those results, it would stand to reason two Packers will be revealed somewhere in the top 30: LB Clay Matthews and QB Aaron Rodgers.

It may be tough to predict where Matthews will land. He has been voted to the Pro Bowl each of his first three seasons, but last year’s six sacks were a career low. Yet, he’s the defensive player that opposing offenses game plan around, and this list is voted on by the players themselves.

Coming off his MVP season, Rodgers very well could end up No. 1. He set a league record for single-season passer rating at 122.5 last year, and he threw 45 TD passes in just 15 games. He’s at the top of his game, and if he’s not No. 1, he’s going to be pretty darn close.

Are there any other Packers you think should have shown up in the Top 100 so far? How about predictions for where Matthews and Rodgers are ranked? Tell us what you think.
