If given the hypothetical opportunity to hit the field with any one of the best receivers in the league, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers says he would pass… but not literally.
He doesn’t want Julio Jones, Odell Beckham Jr., A.J. Green or Antonio Brown.
The Green Bay Packers quarterback doesn’t want anyone that doesn’t wear green and yellow on his offense.
“I love my guys; I don’t wanna trade any of ’em,” Rodgers told FanRag Sports at the 15th annual Gatorade Player of the Year Awards. “I’ll take my guys every week of the season.”
Whether it’s Rodgers who adds a bit of pop to the Packers receiving corps or vice versa, there’s no denying the quarterback’s status in the NFL. He’s become one of the prolific signal callers in the game, throwing for nearly 13,000 yards and combining for 109 touchdowns over the past three seasons. Rodgers, the two-time MVP who led Green Bay to a Super Bowl win in 2011, has piloted the franchise to eight consecutive playoff bids.
Though the Pro Bowl is essentially the only opportunity to witness the Packers quarterback chucking the ball to other guys, it’s sure fun imagining Rodgers do a scramble drill with top five receivers on the outside.
No offense, Jordy Nelson.
