    Aaron Rodgers Recovery Proceeding Well

    Tuesday, February 6, 4:29 PM

    In an interview with Packers.com reporter Mike Spofford, Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers (shoulder) indicated that his recovery has been progressing well. He emphasized that he will have no limitations when he returns to training camp in April. Rodgers broke his collarbone in Week 6, effectively ending his season. His injury turned Green Bay from title contenders to one of the league's worst teams. Rodgers had previously broken his collarbone before in 2013 but returned in 2014 to win the MVP. You can expect Rodgers to return to a high level of play in 2018 but there are big question marks are for the rest of the offense. Wide receivers Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb are both carrying outsized cap hits that make both of them candidates to be cut. New general manager Brian Gutekunst has indicated that he plans to make big moves this offseason, so Green Bay's offense could look radically different come next fall. Regardless, Rodgers should still be viewed as one of fantasy's elite quarterback options in 2018.

    Aaron Rodgers Biography

    Childhood and High School

    Born on December 2, 1983 in Chico, California, Aaron Charles Rodgers also lived with his family in Ukiah, California and Beaverton, Oregon during his childhood before they returned to Chico. His father had played as an offensive lineman for the Chico State Wildcats in the 1970s. Rodgers played quarterback for Pleasant Valley High School in Chico where he racked up 4,421 passing yards and set multiple records. Rodgers graduated in 2002. He also excelled in baseball and basketball as a child.


    After attending Butte Community College near Chico for a year, where he led the team to a 10-1 record, Rodgers transferred to the University of California at Berkeley on an athletic scholarship. He played for the team during 2003 and 2004 season and led the Golden Bears to a 7-3 record. He was doing well until being injured that year but still managed to set various records. He led the fourth-ranked team to the 2004 Holiday Bowl, but they lost that game. Rodgers went pro rather than completing his senior year. Rodgers' college career included some incredible highlights.

    NFL Draft

    At the NFL Combine, Rodgers completed a 34.5-inch vertical leap, and his 40 time was 4.71 seconds. During the 2005 NFL draft, Rodgers was the number 24 pick and was drafted as a backup rookie to Brett Favre with the Green Bay Packers. Rodgers' jersey number is 12. When Favre announced in 2008 that he was retiring as the Packers' quarterback, this paved the way for the position to be open to Rodgers. He has been starting quarterback since that time. In 2013, Rodgers became the football player with the highest salary in the history of the NFL with a 5-year, $110-million contract extension.

    2015 NFL Season

    Rodgers had led the Packers to a Super Bowl victory in 2011 and continued to excel throughout the years. During the 2015 to 2016 season he threw for 3,821 yards, managed 31 touchdowns, and threw only 8 interceptions. He completed 60.7 of his passes and averaged only 6.7 yards per pass attempt. He finished with a passer rating of 92.7. Although overall this was not considered a great year for Rodgers, he still led the team to the NFC playoffs. They made it to the divisional round before being defeated by the Arizona Cardinals. Rodgers played in the Pro Bowl and was ranked the sixth best player in the entire NFL. The 2015-2016 season was memorable for the quarterback, with certain plays making it especially so.

    2016 NFL Season

    The 2016 season marked Rodgers' 12th season for #12 with the Green Bay Packers. At that point he had played for the team for his entire career as he capably followed in the footsteps of Hall of Famer Brett Favre. In the most recent season, the Packers made it to playoffs for the 8th consecutive season but lost to the Super Bowl-bound Atlanta Falcons. Rodgers played somewhat inconsistently this season, doing really well in some games and not as well in other games. He ended the season with 401 completions and 610 attempts. Rodgers played in his third consecutive Pro Bowl in 2016. His 2016-2017 season with the Packers included some notable and memorable plays.
