GREEN BAY - Packers players aren't the only veterans entering another year of training camp.
"You have to really just have them, like say hey come here, it's really just hope for the best," said Joe Carlson of Green Bay who has a Packers player ride his bike to practice.
In his second year bringing his bike to practice, Joe Carlson is holding out hope Jermichael Finley will use his ride to get to Ray Nitschke Field.
"Still got hope," said Carlson. "Because he's a pretty cool player."
The bike-riding tradition dates back to the Lombardi era.
"They're good every year," said Jayden Shoen of Green Bay.
Most of these children say they will come here every day.
For the Thom brothers, the loyalty extends to some players who aren't familiar names to the average fan.
"Not many other people have this jersey," said Drew Thom while wearing Packers linebacker Terrell Manning's jersey.
"Last year he picked me and I really like him," said Caleb Thom of Green Bay while wearing a B.J. Coleman jersey. "He's my favorite player now."
"You know it's pretty cool to see," said Coleman, the Packers backup quarterback. "I've actually got a guy, didn't ride down with him this morning but rode back up with him this afternoon after we finished practice. His name is Caleb. He's got a big sign and a number 9 jersey, which is pretty cool."
"I've had the same rider for the last three years, so I'm just staying consistent, keeping things similar," said Bryan Bulaga, the Packers offensive lineman.
As for Carlson, his player of choice opted for a four-wheel ride to practice.
"I was kind of sad that I wasn't able to have him ride my bike," said Carlson.
Carlson's bike was still put to use, by defensive lineman C.J. Wilson.
"He said, I'll ride your bike on the way back too," said Carlson.
It's a gesture Carlson hopes rides out the rest of the summer.
