After a year of hearing cries from fans, Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst finally gave in.
He finally caved in and brought Rodgers on board.
No, that Rodgers. The other one, rookie wide receiver Amari Rodgers.
When the Packers drafted Rodgers in the third round of this year’s draft, ideas instantly started forming in people’s heads about how the standout receiver from Clemson would be utilized in head coach Matt LaFleur’s offense.
It turns out Rodgers had the same thoughts, even before Green Bay drafted him. He asked his coaches at Clemson to get him film of Davante Adams to watch his crazy release off the line of scrimmage and his precision route running.
Rodgers even told analyst Brandon Marshall his dream draft scenario was to end up in Green Bay.
That dream has been fulfilled and now he can learn from Adams in person. Where Rodgers will ultimately be used is still up for debate, but he can do it all: play the Tyler Ervin-jet sweep role, line up wide, or even return kicks.
There is no limit to the ways a player like Rodgers can be used and it will be exciting to watch unfold as LaFleur goes all mad scientist with his rookie weapon.
Much like Jordy Nelson did with him, now Adams gets to be the mentor to Rodgers. The rookie from Clemson could not have a better teacher.
Adams of course would love the MVP of the league back but he will be ready to destroy the league yet again no matter who is throwing the football.
Meanwhile, the Green Bay defense has plenty of talent for new coordinator Joe Barry to work with. It’s just a matter of putting it all together. No one on the Packers staff will be under more pressure than Barry.
The Milwaukee Bucks didn’t pull off a win last night but that didn’t stop David Bakhtiari from engaging in a Bucks postseason tradition of slamming a beer on the big screen.
No, not that anus. The one that lives at the bottom of the ocean.
