The Green Bay Packers were back on the practice field for the second week of organized team activities, and a familiar face returned.
Five-time All-Pro left tackle David Bakhtiari practiced on Wednesday.
Bakhtiari isn't just a fan favorite for his dominant play on the field, but also his incredible personality. He doesn't give boring answers when interviewed by reporters. Bakhtiari is honest, speaks his mind, but also likes to have fun.
The Packers' starting left tackle was in attendance at OTAs this week. After practice on Wednesday, he spoke to reporters.
And Bakhtiari was at his best.
Packers: David Bakhtiari gives perfect response to question about Jordan Love
Inevitably, many questions were about the transition from Aaron Rodgers to Jordan Love as the Packers' starting quarterback. Speaking to reporters after practice, Bakhtiari was asked for his outlook on Love.
"I think love is a very powerful mechanism that can really bring a team together," said Bakhtiari.
But what about Jordan Love?
"I think Jordan's a very powerful mechanism that can really bring a team together."
Joking aside, the five-time All-Pro did share some great advice for the Packers' new starting quarterback. Bakhtiari added:
"No, he's been good. It's kind of nice seeing him be his own man, not that he ever wasn't, but there's obviously like, you know the role you are being the backup," said Bakhtiari. "He knows it. Until told otherwise, he's going to be the starting quarterback of the Green Bay Packers when we go out there."
"My biggest thing to him is: Be you. I don't need you to be anything different than you were, you don't need to be Aaron. So whatever is comfortable for you, let's do that."
Bakhtiari returning this season is huge for the offense. Not only is he still one of the best left tackles in football, which helps Love, but he brings energy and leadership to the team. Having Bakhtiari in the locker room is just as important.
With such a young offense, particularly at wide receiver and tight end, the Packers need their veterans to lead the way. Bakhtiari is one of them.
Bakhtiari is always fun to listen to when speaking to reporters, and he was on top form after practice on Wednesday.
