Mike Pettine won’t spend much time away from football

After two years out of football, Mike Pettine won’t be away from football for very long.

As explained by Jason Wilde of the Wisconsin State Journal, Pettine will take a limited break before getting ready for his first training camp as the Packers defensive coordinator.

Eight of those charges, though, were dropped. He still faces a reckless driving misdemeanor.

Anderson’s previous issue came the prior May, when he was arrested on a charge of resisting arrest following an alleged physical altercation with a police officer at a Miami music festival. Those charges were dropped.

That hurdle is clearance for full contact and Wentz isn’t sure exactly when that will come.

It’s hard to say I need X to be ready, Wentz said, via Philly.com. I think, at the end of the day, I just need to be cleared for contact. Like you see out here, I’m doing quite a bit. I think, come camp, I’ll keep progressing and doing more and more. To finally be cleared of that contact issue is really the last hurdle, and I feel I’ll be ready whenever that is.

The Eagles haven’t put a definitive plan in place for the preseason in the event Wentz is cleared for contact ahead of their exhibition games, but have indicated playing in them isn’t a requirement to get the start against the Falcons on the first Thursday of the 2018 season.

I’m super excited about it. On game days, I see guys … they have their babies down there, and it’s a warm feeling when you see that. I’m looking forward to it…. I can’t wait.
