Once again, Aaron Rodgers is mulling over his future with the Green Bay Packers, this time dropping hints about the development of the wide receivers.
Here he goes again. It’s always something with Aaron Rodgers, and this time, it’s about the development of the wide receivers.
The Packers quarterback dropped hints about how the development of the team’s pass catchers will likely play a role in his potential return to the ball club next season.
Though rookies Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs each caught touchdowns in last Sunday’s win over the Patriots, Rodgers was still persistent in their long-term development and said that there was “going to be a lot of benefits to be reaped from those guys in the years to come.”
"“Look, my decision, when it comes down to it, will be, obviously, the physical part, the mental part, seeing where the team is at. . . . There’s some moving pieces that’ll factor in, for sure. But seeing the development of those guys can’t help but be a part of the decision,” via Jason Wilde of Madison.com."
Aaron Rodgers is secretly applying pressure to the Green Bay Packers
In fairness to Rodgers, Green Bay must develop these pass-catchers. The two rookies, Watson and Doubs, are on very cheap deals, and if they prove themselves to be strong players, it can only help the Packers offense that is trying to replace Davante Adams.
Though Adams is with the Vegas Raiders, Green Bay, record-wise, is in a better place than Vegas. Rodgers, of course, is still there, and the rookies are helping out in more ways than one. Now, it’s on the organization to make it work and fast.
The Giants are up next, across the pond in London. But Green Bay should feel confident heading into the matchup with their wideouts. Doubs leads the team in receptions with 19. Watson had six catches for 51 yards against the Patriots and a touchdown run. Both provide interesting twists to their game.
Let’s hope Aaron Rodgers makes a decisive decision instead of constantly juggling whether to leave the Green Bay Packers or stay in the Green and Gold sooner than later. Maybe the young guys growing up fast can speed up the process and the decision.
