Pour one out for Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who’s still playing like the NFL’s MVP but continues to throw to practice squad receivers.
Appearing on The Pat McAfee Show, Rodgers agreed that one free-agent option would make a great fit on the Packers offense: Odell Beckham Jr.
McAfee asked Rodgers about luring OBJ to Green Bay.
“If he was interested, I think I’d enjoy that,” Rodgers responded.
When asked about current Packers WRs Romeo Doubs and Christian Watson, Rodgers made the reads and decided to give a very PC answer about his guys.
Watching Romeo Doubs drop the would-be game-winner against the New England Patriots was disheartening.
The Packers narrowly escaped with a victory on Sunday, beating the Pats, 27-24, in overtime.
A win’s a win but Rodgers isn’t turning a blind eye to a desperate need for receiving talent.
Now, Rodgers and OBJ can be a match made in heaven.
“Odell and I have been friends for a number of years now,” Rodgers commented on the ex-Giants WR. “Obviously with a player like that, obviously you’re hoping there’s a way you can play together. I like Odell a lot.”
OBJ’s still waiting on a call back from the Rams, and in the meantime, has been wandering around the league — including a recent visit to the New York Giants, albeit to visit an old friend in Sterling Shepard.
Even veteran guys like Randall Cobb are playing a step slower compared to their hey-days with Rodgers a decade ago.
Beckham tweeted some love to Rodgers after watching him save Green Bay on Sunday.
