Amari Rodgers: I’m showing Packers they can trust me in any situation

Wide receiver Amari Rodgers is hoping to make the most of the offseason shakeup to the Packers wide receiver group.

Rodgers only caught four passes and played 103 offensive snaps after being drafted in the third round last year. He also returned punts and kickoffs, but said that learning how to play with quarterback Aaron Rodgers and “just getting acclimated to the speed of the game took some time” once he hit the NFL.

With a year under his belt, Rodgers earned some praise from wide receivers coach Jason Vrable for his efforts in the offseason program and the wideout said at a youth football camp that he plans to keep impressing the team once he gets to training camp.

“The room is wide open,” Rodgers said, via Alberto Camargo of the Knoxville News Sentinel. “I’m showing that I can play any position and that I know the playbook and [coaches] can trust me, no matter what situation.”

Allen Lazard and Randall Cobb return to the team, but the additions of Sammy Watkins, second-round pick Christian Watson, fourth-round pick Romeo Doubs, and seventh-rounder Samori Toure support Rodgers’ label of a wide open depth chart heading into the season. That should help his chances of finding a spot after doing a lot of observing last season.

  1. Trust him. Isn’t he the guy who would fumble punts last year?

  2. “just getting acclimated to the speed of the game took some time”

    Players that use excuses like this, will NEVER achieve greatness.

  3. That’s how to do it — show them, don’t just tell them (well, maybe tell them, too).

    Rodgers to Rodgers…TD
    That would be epic for the game.

    its already happened when packers had Richard Rodgers

  5. I would be shocked if LaFleur doesn’t figure out a way to utilize his quickness to help Green Bay this season (despite what the Dits might say)

    +++++
    Your average NFL roster has how many GREAT players? Single digits.

    The other 45 or so just need to contribute.

  8. Rodgers worked his tail off to come back from the ACL at Clemson. Was known for his business-like appproach in college. H e is Tee Martin’s(1998 TN NC QB who followed Peyton ) son BTW

  9. He caught only 4 passes last year. It’s not like Wentz was his QB, it’s F-ing Rodgers throwing you the ball. Another wasted draft choice. He will be moved to CB then cut. Go green and yellow!

  10. I guarantee you if the Packers waived Amari Rodgers,… the Vikings would be drooling to snap him up.

    The Vikings Cornerback room is already full. But thanks for playing

  12. The Vikings cornerback room is already full? Of what?? Certainly not quality cornerbacks . . .

  13. The Vikings cornerback room is full of….?? Aspiring XFL players? Soon to be named guys who had a cup of coffee in the NFL?? The Vikings cornerback room is FULL of guys soon to get toasted by Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs!
