Let's jump right in: Do you believe in aliens? If so, then you might be Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who claims to have seen a UFO in 2005 with Cal teammate Steve Levy and one of his brothers.

"It was a large orange, left-to-right-moving object. Because of the overcast nature of the night and the snow, you couldn't make outâit was kind of behind the clouds we were seeing, but it was definitively large, moving from left to right. It was me, Steve [Levy], and his brother that saw it. And it goes out of sight and we look at each other and go 'What in the [redacted] was that?'"
The NFL plans to play a regular-season game in China in 2018, the latest part of the league's international outreach initiative. Packers president Mark Murphy explained Wednesday that the team has no interest in participating in an event so far from home. However, the team could see itself in London. In either case, Green Bay doesn't care to lose a home game to the international series.
Head coach Mike McCarthy reiterated Wednesday what the team has said for the better part of the offseason: Jordy Nelson hasn't endured any setbacks in his recovery from his knee reconstruction and should return to action soon.
The Packers took a huge step in generating pressure in 2015, their best season defensively in quite some time. Still, McCarthy and his staff see room for improvement, and that could come from better utilization of the players already on the roster and those that could join during next month's draft.
