Packers fans were hoping for Rodgers to fit into the role previously filled by Jermichael Finley.

He hasn’t exactly fit into place quite yet.

Rodgers has only recorded seven receptions for 111 yards in eight games.

Andrew Quarless won the starting tight end position and bumped Rodgers into more of a blocking role.

Rodgers has been efficient, so to speak in pass blocking, but that’s really the extent for highlights from the rookie tight end.
