Jeff Saturday says Green Bay is a good place to cap off a career

New Packers center Jeff Saturday participated in Organized Team Activities in Green Bay today, and he said afterward that he considers himself lucky to snap to Peyton Manning for the bulk of his career and then snap to Aaron Rodgers at the tail end of his career.

“I tell people all the time, I’ve already had a blessed career and now you’re just capping it off,” Saturday said. “I feel a little bit like a rookie. I’m in the [play]book a lot more than I’ve ever been, or at least since the ’90s. That’s quite a while. But it’s fun, too. It refreshes you.”

Saturday may feel like a rookie, but Rodgers said he thinks Saturday already has a good idea of what’s expected of the center in the Packers’ offense.

“As much up-tempo stuff that Indianapolis ran in his time there, it’s going to transition very well to some of the stuff we’re going to do,” Rodgers said. “Jeff’s really smart, knows the game really well, knows his strengths and limitations, and we’re excited to have him.”

    I’d love to see Saturday go out on a high note. Without him we likely wouldn’t have had a real season last year.

    Great guy, he deserves to have another shot at a title in Green Bay, and hes got the best quarterback in recent memory not named Peyton Manning

    Jeff Saturday? I’d rather have Milt Sunde. Or Joe Friday. Or Rick Monday. Or Tuesday Weld. Or Wednesday Addams. Anyone know a Thursday?

    Saturday was the man around here in Indianapolis. People loved him and his jersey were easily the 2nd to 3rd most worn.

    A Generous tipper too. A friend of mine managed the Capitol Grille downtown for 2 years and Jeff would frequent it once a month and on lunch, he loved the rib eye sandwich and the truffle fries which are honestly one of the best steak sandwiches I’ve ever had. He would get the Cold seafood platter and lobster crab cakes every time. He would get the double lamp chops, porter house and his favorite the bone in strip. He would spend big on wine, opus one was a often request and he would tip 35-40%.

    Jeff is a smart guy…he knew if he followed Peyton to denver it would be a fail.

    Great player. He deserves to play his final years on a regularly contending team.

    Unfortunately, he has to deal with the above mouth-breathing fans that already anoint their teams Super Bowl champs before OTAs are even over. Sigh.

    Wow textexington, you’re really one of the smart ones aren’t you? Was that 2 more Superbowls, or to win more Superbowls? Got to love these pack fans that have never left WI state border, or their parents basement. Keep drinking your Miller Lite and Milwaukee’s Best.

    I actually visited there a few years ago. It was not hickish at all. It actually has an amazing downtown area, not a little city anymore.

    Great player (I don’t hold it against him that he played for the colts) and a classy guy.

    Good luck

    The people who call GB hickish are obviously MN trolls looking for trouble. I grew up in GB, then moved to SC when I was 18. Just went back last fall for the first time in 20 years and I loved it. The town is like a big family. No one worries about crime and theft, it’s got a small town, 1960′s feel to it, and the lake is absolutely wonderful. Can’t believe how much I missed it.

    If you want to see hickish, come to South Carolina….it’ll give you a whole new respect for where you live. SC makes GB look like CA.
