04:19 PM ET 06.16 | The Green Bay Packers worked hard to improve their running back position this offseason, investing second- and fourth-round picks on Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin in the 2013 NFL Draft, respectively. But Alex Green isn't about to give up his starting job without a fight, and as noted by Tyler Dunne of the Journal Sentinel, Green started and finished minicamp as the No. 1 back. Green rushed for just 464 yards with no touchdowns and a per-carry average of 3.4 yards. On top of that, Green was actually the leading rusher in Green Bay, who has been struggling at the running back position for some time now. That said, Green was injured throughout most of 2012. He still played, but he's adamant that he was not 100 percent following his ACL tear in 2011. Green said that he was in pain for the majority of the season and hasn't been full strength until now.

Stupidest story of the year. He won't even be 4th string when our season starts.

Bit early to be singing, but I guess they have to write stuff, doesn't matter what.

Mini camp is meaningless, unless your a 30-something running back or WR who thinks holding out will increase your value.
