Aaron Rodgers responds to ‘frustration’ reports, says his job is to ‘play quarterback’
This has been an interesting offseason for the Packers, one of several NFC powers undergoing some transition, and in particular an interesting offseason for quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who lost both his best receiver and friend in Jordy Nelson, as well as his quarterbacks coach in Alex Van Pelt.

So I think it’s a good rule to help to take care of everybody in the game.
