Ever since Davante Adams left the squad, there has been a lot going on inside the Packers locker room. There have been uncertainties about who will stand up as the No 1 receiver for Aaron Rodgers, and it seems the quarterback has found his answer. During the Labor day training session, Rodgers wore a unique non-pictured T-shirt that had the name of fifth-year veteran Allen Lazard.

Especially when the veteran was busy grooming the young pack of wide receivers to not repeat the same mistakes. While speculations claimed that it would be Romeo Doubs or Samori Toure, Rodgers made it loud and clear that it was Allen Lazard.

The Athletic’s Matt Schneidman reported the incident where Rodgers was wearing a T-shirt inspired by former US president Donald Trump’s election slogan, ‘Make America Great Again’.

“No, still photography allowed in the locker room, and he didn’t talk today, but Aaron Rodgers is wearing a “Rodgers/Lazard ‘23 MAKE GREEN BAY GREAT AGAIN” T-shirt.” He wrote on Twitter. Not to mention, Lazard’s name was explicitly mentioned on the T-shirt, indicating his intentions.
