Green Bay Packers: Top 10 offensive players of the 2010s
2. Davante Adams
Green Bay noticed the star power of Davante Adams in the 2014 NFL Draft. During his first two NFL seasons, Adams was adjusting to the professional level, and it took a while for him to find his groove. But once he did, he became Green Bay’s top receiver and Rodgers’ most reliable target.
The Rodgers/Adams connection has been on point, and will continue to be an important part of the offensive scheme. Adams is also the go-to receiver is the red zone because of his consistency. With the incredible athleticism and hard work shown by Adams, Rodgers can count on him to get the job done.
Because of his drive and hustle, Adams is one of the top wide receivers in the NFL today who has conquered many milestones. He has pulled through for his team when they needed him the most. Being the clutch player that he is, Green Bay should begin working on a long-term contract with him because he is such a huge asset to the team. Adams is by far one of the best wide receivers to play in Green Bay, and will continue to be a dynamic play-maker.
1. Aaron Rodgers
Of course, the Packers wouldn’t be where they are today without their star quarterback Aaron Rodgers. We were all heartbroken when the legendary Brett Favre left Green Bay to play for Minnesota which left concerns about the Packers’ future. But the concerns were short-lived as Rodgers instantly became a superstar. Ever since he took over the job in 2008, he has been sensational.
Being a once-in-a-lifetime athlete, Rodgers has accomplished greatness, including a Super Bowl win in 2011 and three MVP awards. Not only does Rodgers have an amazing arm and a natural ability to extend plays, but he also has a great mindset for the game.
He is one of the best at determining the best plays for any situation which is what makes him such a valuable player. Head coach Matt LaFleur recognized that when he stepped on the scene and has given Rodgers a lot of freedom to lead his offense. Not many quarterbacks have the play-calling freedom that Rodgers does. It truly takes a special player to be a big contributor in running the offense.
When considering the legendary quarterbacks in Green Bay, Rodgers definitely belongs on that list. Not only is Rodgers one of the best quarterbacks today, he is also one of the greatest of all-time. Hopefully, he will spend the remainder of his career at Green Bay and win another Super Bowl. Rodgers is the epitome of greatness.
