Some talent is just worth the trouble.
After the Packers’ wild goose chase for quarterback Aaron Rodgers during the offseason, the reigning MVP is back to remind fans that few arms in the league can do what his can do.
During Green Bay’s practice on Thursday, the 37-year-old QB gave a taste of his trusted accuracy by hitting a hoop from nearly 40 yards out. The scene drove the audience of Packers fans wild, and sent a single tear running down backup Jordan Love’s cheek.
While the agreement between a returning Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers indicates that this upcoming season will be their “last dance,” the Duke of Discount Double Checks is determined to bring his arsenal of offense back to the NFC Championship Game.
After more than a decade since his latest Super Bowl appearance, the pressure now mounts as Rodgers faces his final season(s) in the league with a championship or two left to win in order to solidify his legacy.
With a career in Green Bay that will span 17 seasons and a list of Hall of Fame-worthy accolades — including three MVP awards and all-time leader in QB passer rating (122.5) — already in his pocket, Aaron Rodgers should have a special final season in Wisconsin.
