Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers told 102.9 The Hog in Milwaukee that their offense will be just fine without Greg Jennings and Donald Driver. “I think we’re going to be a very formidable offense again and on defense if we can get healthy and get some of the guys back and going, we’re going to be tough to beat,” Rodgers said, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Rodgers pointed out how well their receivers played last season. “If you watched last year, Jordy (Nelson) again had a great season, was injured for a little bit,” he said. “James Jones led the NFL in touchdown receptions and Randall Cobb had 80 catches, so those guys were 1-2-3 options last year because of Greg being injured and Donald didn’t have the same role he had in the past. “I feel real confident about those guys. Jermichael had a big season last year, really came on at the end of the year. DuJuan Harris showed a lot in the playoff game as a guy who can get some more carries for us in the coming seasons. I like where our offense is.” The Packers are loaded at receiver and will only continue to add talent through the draft and free agency.     Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();
