Vic Ketchman of Packers.com believes that TE Richard Rodgers has upside in his rookie season: He can block and catch. That’s becoming a rare combination in tight ends. It means he can be an inline blocker and a deep-seam receiver. That’s a special combination and I think he’s going to become a bigger player in this offense in the second half of the season.
Rodgers saw more than two targets for the first time in Week 8 against the Saints, posting four catches for 58 yards. His Snap % has been over 50% in the last two weeks after being in the 20%-48% range for most of the season.
