Nelson takes different approach to training camp this year

Posted: Updated:

Players report to Packers training camp next week with the first practice set for next week Thursday.

For many players, these are the final days of fun and relaxation before the camp begins. 

Jordy Nelson and Scott Tolzien took advantage Tuesday participating at the 50th annual Vince Lombardi-Jack Nicklaus charity golf event at Oneida Country Club.

It's hard to believe Nelson is heading into his 8th season in the NFL. Both Nelson and Tolzien have learned to pace themselves when it comes to making it through training camp. 

"It's definitely different going into year compared to year one or year two.  Main thing is to come out healthy.  Make sure you're fine-tuned and ready to go.  The veterans know how to get to that point to make sure you're ready to go for week one," said Packers receiver Jordy Nelson.

"I think you get smarter as the years go on with how you approach it, both physically and mentally.  The bottom line is that you just have to make every day count.  You can't wait two weeks to get into a groove.  I think you have to be ready to go when it starts because it does go fast.  Before you know it, the first game will be here," said Packers quarterback Scott Tolzien. 

That first game is September 12 at Chicago.
