Aaron Rodgers became a walking-talking offseason star. Most of his off-field activities came under various speculations and theories. Given that A-Rod is one of the NFL’s biggest stars, and the attention is intelligible. Be it parting ways with his fiance, signing a new extension, or getting a new tattoo. It was one big ride for the fans.

During the camp on Wednesday, the reporters surround Aaron Rodgers to ask a couple of questions. When someone asked about the transition from Davante Adams to Allen Lazard as the WR1, the QB’s opening statement had a pun-intended response.

Aaron Rodgers mentions, “I mean it’s always tough going from Hall of Famer to Hall of Famer. From Davante to Allen, it’s gonna be a transition, but he’s capable of a lot… Since his first day here, he’s turned heads. So it’s not surprising to see him go out and have a really consistent day today. But he’s been working hard. He has a lot to prove, I think, to himself and other people, maybe to the team as well.”

To add more context, Davante Adams spoke to CBS Sport and had a parallel response to a similar question. He put Rodgers and Carr in the same HOF wagon.

Rodgers is a savage to even pull it up that way.

Moreover, during the camp’s practices, Rodgers met and greeted the franchise coach, Matt LaFleur. He re-shares a GIF where the QB is seen taking off the coach’s sunglasses.
