The Facts: With Davante Adams drawing attention as the third WR behind Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, second-year TE Rodgers is generating buzz of his own. "He's capable of being a top-level talent at the tight end position in the league," Packers assistant Jerry Fontenot said. "It's just going to be creating opportunities by maximizing the opportunities that you get. That's the bottom line, because he knows what he can do. He's a very smart kid. He understands his talent."
Diehards Line: Barely producing over the first half of his rookie campaign, Rodgers showed more chemistry with Aaron Rodgers down the stretch, hauling in 13 of his 20 catches over the second half of the season -- with seven of those grabs coming in Weeks 16 and 17. Rodgers caught another five balls for 48 yards and a touchdown in Green Bay's two playoff games. In training camp, Rodgers has earned starting snaps and strung together his share of highlight-reel grabs in practice. Now he has to do it on a consistent basis as he competes with Andrew Quarless for playing time.
