GREEN BAY, Wis. – The packer do not know if Aaron Rodgers will hit the mandatory minicamp next week, but considering he’s already missed enough of the offseason program to lose his $ 500,000 training bonus, what is $ 93,000 then?
That’s what the Packers could punish Rodgers for missing the three-day camp that begins Tuesday.
“I don’t know,” said Packers trainer Matt LaFleur when asked if Rodgers would be in touch. “We’ll see how it comes Tuesday.”
LaFleur reiterated that he would like Rodgers to continue serving as the Packers quarterback despite Rodgers being upset with the organization.
“I have nothing to update on this situation, and you all know how we feel about it,” said LaFleur.
Without Rodgers at OTAs, Jordan love served as No. 1 quarterback again this week. During Tuesday’s session, which was open to reporters, Love completed 10-of-17 passes during the 11v11 lone period, but was fired twice and intercepted once ( a ball that went out of the hands of his receiver). He was often seen working through his progress, and at one point he briefly tossed running backs in six games in a seven-snaps distance.
LaFleur didn’t mind Love’s penchant for checking the ball.
“One thing we really put on his heart was reading with his feet,” said LaFleur. “Today was the first time we had a competitive phase without seven-on-seven, so I think everyone definitely learned something on the offensive. It was a bit of a tough day on the offensive.” but usually I think that’s pretty normal at this time of year, only when it comes to defense is usually your offense ahead. So let’s look at the tape, but I think he’s really attacking it. The focus is there, the work ethic, it grinds and tries to get a little better every day. “
The Packers haven’t made Love available for interviews this off-season, but he’s scheduled to speak to reporters during the minicamp next week.
It was veteran first sight as well Blake Bortlesthat was signed last month. Bortles served as No. 2 quarterback and had the longest training time: a deep ball for an undrafted rookie receiver Bailey Gaitherwho got behind cornerback Kevin King for an outstretched catch.
