Aaron Rodgers mentioned. “Funny enough, I went to him before the game, and I said, ‘great day to catch your first touchdown today I think,’ and he kind of smiled. Sure enough, there’s a lot of things I love about Romeo, but it’s just his approach. He’s very steady, he asks a lot of good questions, he’s sharp when you quiz him in a meeting or if a Coach quizzes him. He’ll always come up with the right answer, cares about it, and the best thing is he catches the ball with his hands all the time.”

Rodgers then recalled his catch on a screen press last week. The QB mocked Romeo Doubs about their conversation on Friday after the game. But Doubs came back with a ludicrous over-the-shoulder hand grab with the ball a foot above his head.
