Tim Boyle ready to take another step in his NFL career

Tim Boyle took a giant step in 2019, winning the backup job to Aaron Rodgers.

For the first time since entering the NFL as an undrafted free agent, Boyle dressed for every game as the Packers’ No. 2 quarterback. He saw his first game action and threw his first four career passes, completing three.

“You feel like you’re more invested in what’s going on,” Boyle said of the No. 2 job, via Wes Hodkiewicz of the team website. “This year, I definitely felt like I took a step in the right direction. Understanding conceptually what they’re looking for here. I understand this offense super-well now with it being [installed].”

Boyle is spending the offseason in New York City, where both his sisters live. He plans to train hard over the next three months in hopes of taking his game to another level next season.

“This is going to be another important offseason for me,” Boyle said. “Nothing is set in stone, especially in the NFL. Living around New York City, it’ll be nice to be semi-close to family, so I’ll be able to see them. I don’t have that many vacations planned. It’s going to be a nose-down offseason and make sure I’m grinding away.”

Boyle, 25, compiled a 112.9 pass rating in the preseason, which won him the backup job. He and Rodgers were joined in the quarterbacks room by Manny Wilkins, who was on the practice squad.

Boyle credits Rodgers for making him “more well-rounded” as both a quarterback and as a professional.

  1. Wait, I thought AR was a jerk and all his teamates hated him. Isn’t that the consensus among the haters. What do you know? Other than Greg Jennings and Jemichael Finley everyone thinks AR is a pretty good team mate. More Fake news by the AR haters.

  2. I saw him at the Packers training camp, he has a good lively arm, needs a little work on accuracy, and touch throws, but for an undrafted player, he isn’t too bad.

  3. There is no doubt in my mind that Tim B. will take it to the next level in GB…. as long as he never has to play any significant minutes….ever.

  4. The Packers really do need a, Charlie Batch, as back up. One that can play the Packers’ offence well.

    Sounds like Boyle is ready to take over for a declining Rodgers next season.
    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    It’s so reassuring to know Viking fans haven’t given up the spirit! Apparently, they’re still wishing, hoping, and praying as much as ever!

  6. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a affordable vet come in. This is a fluff story. They need someone that win a game if there is a injury.

    If he’s nose down in the offseason, grinding away, why isn’t he in GB?

    Is this a serious question?? Players all escape green bay in the off season. Even your hero/idol Rodgers leaves green bay for California the first chance he gets.

  8. The young, single, wealthy Viking players all stick around to enjoy Minnesota winters in the off-season.

    Sure they do.

  9. The only way he’s taking a next step is if Rodgers gets injured. But perhaps he means trying to be a starter somewhere else in 2021. Being an nfl backup qb many times is better than being a starter. Lay low, collect paychecks for 10 years, rather than starting and being out of a job in 2-3 years.
