Reworked Packers' Offensive Line Getting Work

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers are using their spring practices as a chance to get their reconfigured offensive line accustomed to their new roles.
Although offseason team activities began Monday, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Tuesday's practice was the first to feature 11-on-11 work after the first day of practice focused on fundamentals and position drills.
McCarthy made the change last month. The five players -- Bryan Bulaga, Josh Sitton, T.J. Lang, Marshall Newhouse and Don Barclay were moved around.
Bulaga was moving from right tackle to left tackle; Sitton and Lang were flip-flopping their spots, with Sitton shifting to left guard and Lang moving to right guard; and Newhouse moving to right tackle, where he'll compete with Barclay and others.
On the first snap of the 11-on-11 sessions, it was Bulaga, Sitton, center Evan Dietrich-Smith, Lang and Newhouse left-to-right in front of quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
But while working together at their new positions was important, individually adjusting both mentally and physically is the biggest challenge, several players said.
