Training Camp Countdown: 14 Days

With two weeks until the start of camp, we provide some surprising numbers about career touchdowns. Donald Driver and Greg Jennings are about to join some elite company, and the numbers behind an in-flux running game.

There are 14 days remaining until the Green Bay Packers kick off training camp.

Every day until the start of camp on July 26, we'll be giving you one juicy nugget to whet your appetite for the return of football. We'd give you more but the CBA forbids two-a-days. Sorry.

Talking touchdowns

We take a timeout from our pre-training camp analysis to examine the Packers' career touchdown list.

Don Hutson leads the way with 105 touchdowns, including 99 through the air. He's followed by Jim Taylor's 81, Ahman Green's 68, Sterling Sharpe's 66 and Paul Hornung's 62.

Donald Driver enters this season with 60 touchdowns, putting him two behind the Golden Boy for prestigious fifth place.

Greg Jennings enters this season with 49 touchdowns, leaving him one behind James Lofton for 10th place. With a typical Jennings season, he could pass Verne Lewellen (51), Max McGee (51) and Antonio Freeman (57) for seventh place.

With his breakout 15-touchdown season, Jordy Nelson is tied for 34th with 21 touchdowns. With a decent season, he could pass Javon Walker (22), Ed West (26), Ryan Grant (27) and Tom Moore (27) to move into 30th place. Nelson's position coach, Edgar Bennett, ranks 29th with 29 touchdowns. Pro Football Hall of Famer Tony Canadeo, one of six players with his number retired, is tied with Donny Anderson for 25th with 31 touchdowns — 10 ahead of Nelson.

James Jones, by the way, is tied for 38th with Bill Schroeder with 20 touchdowns.

Then there's John Kuhn. Mike McCarthy's favorite short-yardage option has 18 touchdowns (10 rushing and eight receiving). That's good for 43rd in franchise history. If he records his third consecutive six-touchdown season, Kuhn would surge into 33rd place. Kuhn's 18 scores are more than such luminaries as Mark Chmura (17), Andy Uram (16), Ron Kramer (15), Lavvie Dilweg (14) and Curly Lambeau (12).

Aaron Rodgers is tied for 49th with 16 touchdowns (not including passing, obviously). It's a good thing that Kuhn and Rodgers can score. Halfbacks James Starks, Alex Green and Brandon Saine have combined for one touchdown, by Starks last year.

Rodgers' 16 rushing touchdowns rank 20th in team history. He's had at least three rushing scores in his four seasons as the starting quarterback. If he gets three this season, he'd pass Brent Fullwood (18) and Barty Smith (18) and tie Edgar Bennett (19) for 17th place.

Finally, there's Charles Woodson, who is tied for 79th with 10 touchdowns. Woodson has 11 total defensive touchdowns for his career, one behind Rod Woodson's NFL record.
