  • Romeo Doubs Impressing Aaron Rodgers

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers typically doesn't gush over rookie wide receivers, but Romeo Doubs has made quite the impression on the veteran QB during training camp so far this summer. Rodgers said he likes Doubs' approach and that he's very humble. The 22-year-old is getting a lot of opportunities to show his stuff with veteran Sammy Watkins (hamstring) and fellow rookie Christian Watson (knee) sidelined with injuries. Rodgers said that Doubs has made some mental mistakes, which should be expected, but he's also had at least one "wow" play in every practice. It's high praise for the rookie, who could open his first NFL season with a substantial role in the offense behind Allen Lazard and Randall Cobb with Davante Adams now in Las Vegas.

  • Aaron Rodgers Happy With His Receivers

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers seems to be happy with his group of wide receivers in training camp after the team traded away All-Pro Davante Adams in the offseason. "I like the guys that we got," Rodgers said Saturday. "Obviously not having Davante, who took the lion's share of the targets last year and had an incredible season, there's gonna be the same amount of balls and yards and touchdowns to go around. So now it's a matter of who's going to be in those situations to make those plays." Allen Lazard, who finished with eight touchdowns in 2021, is expected to step into the No. 1 role this year. Rookies Christian Watson (knee), currently on the Physically Unable to Perform list, and Romeo Doubs should also have big roles right away.

  • Brian Gutekunst, Matt LaFleur Receive Extensions

    The Green Bay Packers gave both general manager Brian Gutekunst and head coach Matt LaFleur undisclosed contract extensions this offseason that will keep them within the organization for years to come, according to a league source. Executive vice president and director of football operations Russ Ball also received an extension. With LaFleur at the controls, the Packers have advanced to the NFC Championship twice. It was kind of a no-brainer to extend all three parties, but it's certainly Super Bowl or bust for the organization as long as quarterback Aaron Rodgers is around. That will be even tougher to accomplish in 2022 with All-Pro receiver Davante Adams gone.

  • David Bakhtiari Still Dealing With Knee Injury

    Green Bay Packers tackle David Bakhtiari (knee) was placed on the PUP list. With training camp commencing, the veteran isn't 100% after tearing his ACL during practice on New Year's Eve in 2020. He only logged 27 snaps in 2021, the regular season finale, and was subsequently shut down for the playoffs. Nonetheless, the 30-year-old is considered one of the best offensive linemen in the NFL, so if he misses any games in 2022-23, it won't be good news for Aaron Rodgers and company.
