A-Rod on TE Richard Rodgers: 'Moves well ... catches everything.'

Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel - [Full Article]

On the topic of TE Richard Rodgers...

"He moves well," quarterback Aaron Rodgers said. "Catches everything."

The passing game has always been the easy part for Richard Rodgers. He played wide receiver in high school before moving to tight end at California, where he bulked up to 275 pounds as a freshman and sophomore.

Last year, he lost 30 pounds to play a split-receiver position at 245. He's back up in the 270-275 range now and blocking as well as any tight end in camp, according to TE coach Jerry Fontenot.

Fantasy Impact: 

The team has been impressed with Rodgers' play this offseason and the starting job is there for the taking if he can beat out Andrew Quarless and Brandon Bostick.
