They sit at the top of the NFC North Division table, above Nick Foles-led Chicago Bears and rival Minnesota Vikings. There have been some outstanding individual displays by Packers players such as Aaron Jones, Davante Adams, Allen Lazard, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling. Another name on that list is defensive star, Jaire Alexander.

Aaron Rodgers heaps praise on Packers teammate Jaire Alexander

 

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers singled out cornerback Jaire Alexander for special praise after the latter’s impressive displays over the course of the season.

“I enjoy our conversations talking about the books he’s reading or his own mental process. His practice of mindfulness and being into meditation, he just has a really good outlook on life. His head is really in the right place at all times, allows him to really stay in the flow state and be on point every time he takes the field.”

“We were talking today, me and (tight end) Marcedes (Lewis), the difference between players who maybe are confident and those who have that fear of failure is the ability to quiet your mind, to slow things down to be more reactive and less thinking. That’s all traits Jaire has,” Rodgers told The Athletic’s Matt Schneidman.
