Aaron Rodgers Will “Get Together” With Teammates In June

May 19, 2011

With NFL players and owners unable to understand the art of compromise, the current lockout continues with no end in sight. In response, quarterbacks around the league have begun to organize informal workout sessions with their teammates, and Aaron Rodgers may soon follow their lead.

“If this drags in June, we’re going to have to find a way to get together,” Rodgers told a sold-out crowd gathered for a MACC fundraiser in Milwaukee on Tuesday evening. The event raised an estimated $225,000 for the Midwestern Athletes Against Childhood Cancer fund, far surpassing last year’s total of $35,000.

According to former Packers safety Matt Bowen, player organized workouts may seem like a good idea, but they lack the “structure in an NFL practice.” Bowen writes that the informal practices do not have the film study, specific positional work, and the general competitiveness of players trying to impress the coaching staff.

So before anyone gets too excited over offseason workouts, remember that the coaching staff plays a vital role in offseason practices. And by looking over last season’s body of work, we all know that the Packers’ staff is very good at their jobs; the sooner they can get to work, the better off everyone will be.
