As the Green Bay Packers prepare to move forward without Aaron Rodgers, it looks promising that they will be getting their biggest star back on the other side of the ball.

The problem here is that there aren't enough Johnsons in the trenches to field a competitive team. There are plenty of receivers, running backs, corners, and the like, but not enough linemen.
