Aaron Rodgers’s Packers Prepare For Upcoming Season

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers are looking to shape up this offseason in order to make a run at another Super Bowl.

Last season, the Packers won the NFC North and went to the NFC Championship game where they lost to the Atlanta Falcons. Rodgers came to offseason workouts lighter than usual. He says he feels great and this is the best shape he’s been in at this time of the year. Rodgers credits coming to offseason workouts lighter to cutting out playing golf. The weapons around Rodgers will have to step up if they want to get back to the Super Bowl.

What Has To Change?

First, the offensive line must keep Rodgers upright. Rodgers talked about the right guard position saying its good competition and chemistry is key for the offensive line. The Packers also added Martellus Bennett and Lance Kendricks to Rodgers’ arsenal. Rodgers sees the energy Bennett brings after talking with him and seeing him in the locker roomAdding Bennett and Kendricks to the tight end group of Richard Rodgers and Beau Sandland instantly upgrades the tight end position.

These new tight ends will also boost the offense. Rodgers sees the tight ends helping their running game, which would make them more unpredictable.

Rodgers says this group of tight ends is special not just because of what they can do on the field, but also their football knowledge.
