GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- A newly signed quarterback should get some playing time in a Green Bay Packer minicamp that opens today.

Oklahoma quarterback Paul Thompson is expected to get some practice with his new team after signing on with Green Bay as a free agent.

He led the Sooners to a Big 12 championship last fall.

The Packers are expected to rely on all their reserve quarterbacks in the minicamp workouts.

Starter Brett Favre is recovering from surgery to remove bone spurs.

Backup Aaron Rodgers is rehabilitating a broken foot.
