Packers to limit Aaron Rodgers’ preseason throws

With no formal offseason preparation, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will be limited in the preseason, coach Matt LaFleur told reporters Friday.

Locked in a stalemate with the Packers over his future this offseason, Rodgers didn’t participate in any team workouts before reporting to training camp this week.

LaFleur said he met with Rodgers and discussed the amount of throws he’ll make each day to spare “wear and tear” on his arm. He didn’t specify the number but said the Packers will be keeping count.

ESPN reported that in the past three days, he averaged 14 throws during 11-on-11 drills.

LaFleur also confirmed Friday that backup quarterback Jordan Love will take the majority of preseason reps.

Rodgers, the reigning league MVP, said he considered retirement but he and the Packers reached a contract compromise to keep him in Green Bay.

ESPN reported he signed a reworked contract in which the Packers are voiding the 2023 season from the deal.

The report said that the Packers also removed certain forfeiture provisions from the contract that would have allowed the team to try to recoup portions of Rodgers’ signing bonus should he retire.

Rodgers, 37, shared both the physical and mental preparation he did in the offseason via social media and addressed the mental aspect of sports this week.

“I think it’s important that we work on our mental state. As you’ve seen with Simone Biles, I think there needs to be more conversation around that,” Rodgers told reporters. “For me, it was just about clearing any of the clutter. That’s what I tried to do this offseason by adjusting some habits and spending some time with my loved ones, traveling as safely and as often as I possibly could and then making sure I was ready to go if I came back.”
