Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers says the lack of any full-scale, whole-team, player-organized minicamps during the lockouts shouldn’t raise any questions about whether Green Bay’s players will be ready to go when the lockout ends.
“I’ve been throwing enough to where I’m not worried about if I’m going to be ready for when this thing shakes down,” Rodgers said Thursday.
Rodgers says he’s in great shape himself, and that any team-building that offseason workouts accomplish was taken care of when all the players got together to get their Super Bowl rings.
“We did have a great gathering in Green Bay a few Thursdays ago,” Rodgers said. “Other than that, we haven’t had anything official.”
Rodgers believes the end of the lockout is coming, and that’s when the Packers will all get together again.
“I think everybody has a sense that it’s going to end soon,” Rodgers said. “It’s just a matter of how soon is soon.”
