With the NFL offseason in full swing, Aaron Rodgers took the opportunity to participate in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. The golf tournament gave the Green Bay Packers quarterback his first chance to work on his recently scoped knee. According to Rodgers, the "it felt great."

Rodgers had his knee scoped very soon after the Packers' 26-20 defeat to the Arizona Cardinals in the NFC Divisional Round to clean up an "old injury." Given that the signal-caller has already returned to the links, the procedure doesn't appear likely to affect him moving forward, a positive sign for an offense that endured its worst year statistically in multiple decades.

Rodgers' performance dipped in 2015 from his MVP-winning play of the season before. He completed just 60.7 percent of his throws for 3,821 yards, 31 touchdowns and eight interceptions, good for a passer rating of 92.7. The Packers still reached the playoffs, however, finishing with a 10-6 record during the regular season.
