Rodgers provides lessons, insight to young Packers quarterbacks
GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Now that the Aaron Rodgers drama has died down, the three-time MVP has resumed his two usual roles at training camp: QB1 and professor for young Packers backup quarterbacks Jordan Love and Kurt Benkert.
Throughout the start of the 2021 training camp, both Love and Benkert have gotten "free lessons" every day at Ray Nitschke Field.
Brett Favre famously said it's not his job to mentor Aaron Rodgers and helping the backups be prepared is not the number one expectation of a starting NFL quarterback, yet Rodgers seemingly has made an effort to help the young gunslingers out in every practice.
The veteran quarterback has been spotted at camp watching closely on every rep and often giving feedback on things like foot placement and arm angles.
"There's so much that a young quarterback has to learn and I think every opportunity that you get you have to take it," said Packers Head Coach Matt LaFleur. "And you've got a Hall of Famer that does so many things. He's been awesome giving him insight. Makes the whole operation smoother."
Fans will get a good look at Rodgers, Love and LaFleur and the rest of the team with the annual Packers family night at Lambeau Field Saturday night, Aug. 7 on CBS 58.
