'I'm 100% invested': Rodgers returns to action at Packers minicamp
GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A big piece of the Green Bay Packers puzzle is back. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers was at Packers minicamp Tuesday, June 7.
After missing voluntary OTA's, Rodgers returned to the field for the start of mandatory minicamp. Despite last year's drama and talks of retirement, No. 12 left no doubt where his head is at.
"This is my 18th season. Of course you think about the next chapter and what's next in your life all the time," said Rodgers. "It doesn't mean you're not fully invested. When I said I'm back, I'm 100% invested."
All of the Packers who missed OTA's followed Rodgers' lead showing up to minicamp except Allen Lazard. The receiver still has not signed his contract but everyone else from Sammy Watkins to the rookie wide outs were in action.
"I like production over potential. We have some production, we have a lot of potential. There's guys who have done some things in the week and there's guys who haven't. They are going to get opportunities," Rodgers said.
"It's just like anything. I think some more of these guys can get around each other, the more they can learn each other, the quicker they can start to develop that chemistry that's so important. That we know it's so important in determining our success on the field," said Packers Head Coach Matt LaFleur.
By all accounts, the four-time MVP had no rust.
When Rodgers was asked if he'll finish his career in Green Bay, he didn't hesitate saying, "definitely" before adding, "unless they trade me."
