Jolly Continues To Make Strides

Twenty-five days into the Green Bay Packers‘ training camp and defensive tackle Johnny Jolly’s comeback continues to be one of the main stories.  After getting some push up the middle against the Arizona Cardinals in week one of the preseason, Jolly turned in a solid performance in the Packers week two contest with the Saint Louis Rams.  Jolly had two tackles, deflected a pass (which was intercepted by Jarrett Bush) and came up with an interception in the Rams endzone.  He also put some pressure on the Saint Louis quarterbacks.  Jolly feels that he is making progress…

After his interception Saturday night, it appeared that the entire Packers sideline went over to congratulate Jolly.  He appreciates the support that he has gotten from his teammates…

Jolly has been out of football for three years after violating the NFLs substance abuse policy and a jail stay (he was released after serving six months of a six-year prison sentence).  Defensive tackle B.J. Raji expected Jolly to be a bit rusty, but he has been pleasantly surprised…

Jolly’s last season with the Packers was in 2009.  He started all sixteen games that season and finished with 75 tackles, one sack and an interception.  Jolly’s next chance to impress the coaching staff in a game will be Friday night when the Packers host the Seattle Seahawks.
