There has been plenty of changes for the Packers since their loss to Seattle in the NFC Championship game back in January. Now the 2015 version of the green and gold starts to prepare for another run at the big game with offseason workouts.

For many players Monday’s start of the offseason program is their first time coming back to Green Bay since their playoff run ended against the Seahawks.

“It was pretty interesting in the locker room just every body talking and catching up. I think a lot of people are excited to be back, and excited to get to work,” said wide receiver Randall Cobb.

Then there’s the players that stick around to work out at the Packers facilities.

“It’s actually kind of creepy. So, you want to make sure you workout with somebody, you leave at the same time. I think I almost yelled at [Letroy] Guion for walking out without me, because it’s just very odd. It’s quiet not having that many people here. So, to have the locker room really lively, it’s awesome,” said defensive tackle Mike Daniels.

Just like any NFL team, the Packers have seen their fare share of changes this offseason. With the players returning for offseason workout there is some new coaches, coaches working in different roles, and the empty lockers of teammates that have moved on to different teams.

At the same time there is one big name that remains after free agency, Randall Cobb.

The fifth year wide out is coming off a career year that set new highs in catches, receiving yards, and touchdowns. Numbers that garnered attention from other teams during free agency, but after looking at all his options Cobb decided to stay in Green Bay.

“My teammates. I know what I have in Aaron [Rodgers]. I know what we have in our receiving corps. I feel like we’re right there, we’re ready. Starting the journey today to build on this season to bring a Super Bowl back this upcoming year,” said Cobb.

Making it to the Super Bowl will require getting past the NFC title game loss to Seattle. A game that is driving Cobb and company this offseason.

“I thought about it in my training. You know, this past couple months, when ever I reached that point of fatige or where I can’t go no more. Having those thoughts in the back of my head, and knowing that next rep may be the rep that’s going to excell us past that moment,” said Cobb.

“Just like any loss you have at the end of the season. Whether you were up like we were, whether it was a close game, whether you get blown out, either way that last game, unless you win a Super Bowl, is always tough. It’s something that you work towards, and it’s a new season. We’re working towards getting better,” said Daniels.
