(WNFL)- With Evan Dietrich-Smith gone, two young players appear to be competing for the Green Bay Packers' starting center spot at this point. The Packers drafted Corey Linsley in the fifth round last month. JC Tretter, a fourth-round pick from Cornell a year ago, made it through his initial OTA practices last week after he had season-ending leg injuries in one of his first Green Bay workouts as a rookie. Tretter had a broken fibula and torn ankle ligaments on the first day of the OTA's last May. He spent most of last season on the physically-unable-to-perform list. Tretter was added to the 53-man roster last December and practiced with the Packers for the rest of the campaign. Tretter says he'll be ready for an open competition for the center's job at Training Camp. Dietrich-Smith, a free agent, left in March for Tampa Bay.
