Christian Watson eager to do all he can to get on the same page with Aaron Rodgers

USA Today

The Packers traded up in the second round to draft wide receiver Christian Watson, and Watson knows that the team invested in him with the idea that he can come in and make a difference right away. Which means Watson knows he needs to be on the same page as Aaron Rodgers.

“He’s going to be making checks at the line, he’s going to be expecting you to be at a certain place on time, your head’s spinning a little bit, but you got to make sure you’re there doing everything right to be on the same page with him,” Watson said.

Rodgers hadn’t attended voluntary Organized Team Activities, so mandatory minicamp was Watson’s first chance to work with him.

“It was his first day being out there with us. When I saw him this morning it was weird just casually seeing him,” he said. “Obviously, that’s something I gotta get used to, but it’s still crazy to be here and playing with him.”

Watson said he’s been learning from Rodgers in their brief time together. In three months, the Packers hope he’s catching plenty of catches from Rodgers on Sundays.

  1. There was an article in the Athletic talking about this guys’ freakish athletic talent, and they commented that he’s also got a sharp mind. As a Packer fan, I hope this is accurate reporting. I hope he learns the pro game quickly, and Rodgers should help. The rap on him has been inconsistent hands, so let’s buckle down that concentration. It sounds like the sky is the limit for him, but in fairness, the vast majority of rookie WR’s do not “blow it up.” For every Randy Moss, J’mar Chase and Justin Jefferson there are literally dozens of guys who barely move the needle as rookies. Historically, 2nd and 3rd year is when WR’s make the jump.

  2. Davante Adams 1st year stats,….
    66 tgts,.. 38 recep,.. 446 yds,.. 3 tds.

    Of course he was behind Jordy Nelson. This year could be different for a rookie WR on a talented roster. And rookie WR’s are more familiar with pro style offense game plans these days. No Dakota St and UNLV had pro style offenses. Preseason playing time is important to clarify Play calls, Audibles, and Play options.

    Funny that Rodgers does not seem to know this too

  4. When I saw him this morning it was weird just casually seeing him

    yes a rodgers sighting in green bay in the offseason has become weird

  5. Hey kid good to hear you’re ready to work. If you want to be page with Aaron, first get his book on Selfishism start with chapter 2 Me Myself and Aaron.

  6. They’ve had some great receivers, but never a freakish athlete like this.

    Rodgers, with a Moss-throw it up there and I’ll go get it-type… that might change Rodgers future plans.

    Comparing Watson, who averaged 2 catches per came in his collegiate career, to Randy Moss????? Maybe pump the brakes a bit.
