J.J. Watt broke a kid’s bike at Packers training camp

I think the key for all of us here, we know how important training camp is not only to our fans but our local businesses.

In fact, he hates them so much that he publicly went on record against the team's joint sessions with the Houston Texans (the first dual practice for the QB since '05), telling Packers News "I'm glad it's over", and "I wouldn't mind if they didn't do it for another 14 years".

"There was just a brief period of time when I looked up and you just see all the greats written all, in Lambeau", he said. But not long after Watt, who's 6-foot-5, 285 pounds, sat on the seat and started "riding" the bike, he broke the seat. "I apologize for that".


The Packers, as they've been known to do, rode bikes to Lambeau Field, and Watt got in on the action as well. "The welcome and reception I've gotten since I got back here - to see people wearing my jersey, it's pretty insane".

"To see wearing my jersey outside of this stadium and at this practice, even though I've tried to wrap my head around it, I don't think I've wrapped my head around what it means, and how special it really is", Watt explained.

For some, it was watching the Texans pick out children's bikes to ride to practice.


"It's one of the coolest traditions", he said, according to ESPN.

Grant also was considered a good fit in Green Bay because the Packers' offensive coordinator, Nathaniel Hackett, had held that position with the Jaguars for the past three seasons. Those are the memories that those kids are going to have for a lifetime.

Scharping grabbed a bike with training wheels - and he didn't break the bike.
