Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers played one series in Thursday night’s preseason game, and did everything he wanted to do.
“I got rid of the nerves, got hit, had a scramble and a slide, and hit Jimmy and Davante. That’s kind of the checklist of my first action,” Rodgers said.
Thursday night’s game was the first time Rodgers and Graham have played a game as teammates, and Rodgers is liking what he’s seeing from the five-time Pro Bowl tight end.
“He can do it all over the field,” Rodgers said. “He’s an incredible athlete, he’s got a wide, wide catch radius and there’s a lot of things he can do. It’s exciting to be able to have a guy like that.”
After Rodgers hit Graham for a touchdown on the starters’ only series, the backups put on a show, and the Packers beat the Steelers 51-34. Everyone in Green Bay had to like that.
