The tight ends in Green Bay – Richard Rodgers

Out of all the tight ends on the team, the one with the most potential is Richard Rodgers.
Rodgers still has work to do with his blocking skills. He ranked second worst on the team behind David Bahktiari. He’s just a year into his career and has plenty of time to improve.
Rodgers was targeted 30 times and caught 20 passes for 225 yards and two touchdowns. That’s pretty good considering he played only 491 snaps compared to Quarless’s 645 snaps.
The Packers could draft a tight end this year to pair with Richard Rodgers, but in all likeliness it won’t be until day two or three of the draft.
Green Bay has needs to address at inside linebacker, nose tackle, and probably cornerback before they consider a tight end.
Next: Justin Perillo?
