The Green Bay Packers were the hottest team in the NFL until they ran into the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC Championship Round. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers now wants the team to reload for next season and contend for the Super Bowl once again.
Aaron Rodgers wants Packers to reload
In the postgame interview, Rodgers insisted that the Packers do not need to rebuild next season. He just wants the front office to reload the team so that they can contend for the Super Bowl next season. The Packers main priority should be improving their defense.
“We need to reload. I don’t think we need to rebuild. We need to reload. We got a lot of players who are young. We just need to reload a little bit this offseason,” Rodgers said, via NFL.com.
The Packers have one of the best offenses in the NFL which means they don’t need to do anything in that aspect. However, the Falcons exposed the Green Bay defense in the NFC Championship Title Game by beating the Packers 44-21.
Moves Green Bay must do in the offseason
According to FOX Sports, the Packers have to do a lot of things in the offseason to improve the roster and make Aaron Rodgers happy. First, is keeping the offensive line intact by re-signing T.J. Lang and J.C. Tretter.
The Packers also need to re-sign Jared Cook, who is one of the best players in the team in the postseason. Green Bay also needs to improve their secondary while drafting a running back in this year’s Amateur Draft.
Finally, the Packers need to spend some money in the offseason and sign players like A.J. Bouye or Trumaine Johnson in free agency. Other names Green Bay can sign include Zach Brown, Melvin Ingram, Alshon Jeffrey and DeSean Jackson.
