Richard Rodgers

Richard Rodgers Has Value

Richard Rodgers can’t run or block, but he has a huge body and great hands. That should be enough to make him a desirable commodity as the summer moves along. And with Martellus Bennett and Lance Kendricks ahead of him on the depth chart, it wouldn’t be a shock to see GM Ted Thompson at

Positional Analysis: Tight End

This is the fourth of a 14-part series examining each position going into the offseason. Starter (B-): Jared Cook finished the season strongly, but let’s keep things in perspective. The soon-to-be 30-year-old dropped four passes in the playoffs, did very little after the catch and was a pedestrian blocker. That said, he was also the

Notes: Money For Nothing

Richard Rodgers, along with center Corey Linsley, will see their base salaries get bumped from 696,000 to $1.838 million for next season because they qualified for the salary escalators available to players drafted in rounds 3 to 7. As it pertains to the fourth-year tight end from Cal, that might not be such great news.

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. DAL

After “studying the tape” (that sounds a heck of a lot better than “turning on the computer”), here are 10 additional thoughts from Sunday’s game against the Cowboys: —Sunday was Aaron Rodgers’ poorest performance since I starting watching the All-22 coaches tape. He’s put up much worse stats, but I can’t remember a game in which he

Offense Will Be OK

It’s easy to panic after Sunday night. Heck, you wouldn’t be a fan if you aren’t panicking at least a little after Sunday night. The offense, which hasn’t been good for nearly a year, hit rock bottom in a nationally televised game against a division rival. But as bleak as things may appear, I wouldn’t

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. JAX

After “studying the tape” (that sounds a heck of a lot better than “turning on the computer”), here are 10 additional thoughts from Sunday’s game against the Jaguars: 1) Damarious Randall was the Packers’ best player on Sunday. The former No. 1 pick from Arizona State was terrific in coverage and more than adequate against

5 Packers Poised To Leap

Mike McCarthy talks all the time about the importance of players making a leap from one year to the next. Among the reasons the Packers struggled in 2015 was because safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and to a lesser extent left tackle David Bakhtiari were the only jumpers on the team. For things to go better in

Cook Well Worth The Gamble

Talk to fans of the Titans and Rams (are there fans of the Titans and Rams?) and you won’t hear a lot of nice things about Jared Cook, the veteran tight end who visited with Green Bay on Monday. Who cares. Those people didn’t have to watch Richard Rodgers consistently turn 3-yard catches into 4-yard

Fleener Would Be A Fit

Watching the Redskins last season reinforced just how important a quality tight end is to an offense. With Jordan Reed getting open all over the field, Kirk Cousins often played like an elite quarterback. But replace Reed with Richard Rodgers and something tells me Cousins would’ve looked more like Marcia Brady than Tom Brady. That

No Excuse For This Mess

Green Bay’s offense has been terrible for the better part of the past two and a half months. Aside from an unexpectedly strong showing against Minnesota in week 11, the Packers have struggled mightily to move the ball in their other eight games since beginning the season 6-0. And it’s not like they’ve been playing
