GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Green Bay Packers tight end Robert Tonyan may get to have his annual offseason training sessions with San Francisco’s George Kittle a little earlier than usual.

The two tight ends could be working out together at the Pro Bowl if Tonyan maintains his early-season pace.

Tonyan has scored in each of his last three games and has five touchdown catches to rank second to Tampa Bay’s Mike Evans in that category.

He’s a major reason why the Packers are unbeaten as they enjoy their off week.
