Packers rookie and his 'bike kid' form a special friendship at training camp

It's wonderful to see a rookie making a difference.

Corey Linsley was selected in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft, but perhaps he should be the No. 1 overall pick in the good guy selection process.

The Packers continue a decades-old tradition of riding children's bikes to training camp. It's a sweet event that lets kids get up close and personal with their favorite players. Linsley developed a special friendship with his "bike kid," and after learning his mother was sick, Linsley wanted to do something nice for the family.

Given the amount of terrible off-field incidents the NFL has had this offseason, it's wonderful to see such a genuine act of kindness.
