He has OTAs at 7:30, and here he is at 3:30 in the morning doing this. House tweeted that he needed a ride, and two brothers obliged.
When they got House to his auto at Austin Straubel International Airport in Green Bay, House insisted the brothers follow him to the stadium.
"When it comes down to the end here and you're thinking about your percentage and making sure you get your workout bonus, you'll do just about anything to get back here in time for these OTAs", Rodgers said, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN. They even brought him a pillow for the ride.
"It tells you about his commitment - both from our fans and Davon", McCarthy said before Tuesday's OTA practice. "Cool story. He knows the importance of (OTAs) ..."
"It's important, especially when it's an install day". Surely he should get some shut-eye, they said. "I think Davon obviously showed that and the importance of being here".
Here's your regular reminder that Green Bay Packers fans are the best in the National Football League, or at least the nicest.
House explained to fans that rain had impacted his flight from Austin, and that his connecting flight wouldn't arrive in Minnesota until 11 p.m. -too late to catch a flight to Green Bay.
Johnson added, "It was a bad night for him but made memories that will last forever for a couple of lifelong Packer fans".
