(Eds: APNewsNow.) By CHRIS JENKINS AP Sports Writer Aaron Rodgers is pleased with the progress he's making in building a relationship with Green Bay's new quarterbacks coach in the wake of the Packers' offseason shake-up of their offensive coaching staff.
When Joe Philbin left to take over as the Miami Dolphins' head coach, Packers coach Mike McCarthy promoted Tom Clements to offensive coordinator and moved Ben McAdoo, who had been coaching the Packers' tight ends, to take over Clements' role coaching the quarterbacks.
The moves allow Rodgers to continue his good relationship with Clements in a different role, while getting a fresh perspective from McAdoo.
The Packers conclude their three-day minicamp Thursday. When they return for training camp, they'll face high expectations.

According to Lance Zierlein of the Houston Chronicle, there are rumors around the league that the Green Bay Packers might be interested in trading wide receiver James Jones.
Zierlein brought up the fact that Jones would be a nice fit for the Texans, since they could use some depth at the receiver position.
It would make sense for the Packers to deal Jones, since they’re...
GREEN BAY, Wis. On the first day of Packers minicamp, quarterback and reigning NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers talked about a variety of topics.
Five question-and-answer highlights:
1. How have the new coaches and coaching adjustments on offense been?

GREEN BAY, Wis. While Jarius Wynn is battling for a regular spot on the Packers' defensive line during mini-camp, he is also battling with an off-the-field health issue: Bell's palsy.
"It came on about two weeks ago," Wynn said Tuesday. "It's a real mild case, so it wasn't that bad. It's just my left eye. It wouldn't close."
A little known Packers wide receiver earned public praise today from two very important men, Head Coach Mike McCarthy and quarterback Aaron Rodgers. That wide receiver is Diondre Borel. Borel is not a well known player by any stretch of the imagination. He is a 2nd year player out of Utah State and was a collegiate quarterback, spending last season on the practice squad learning...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Now that Jeff Saturday is a Green Bay Packer after a 13-year, five-Pro Bowl career with the Indianapolis Colts, his new offensive line teammates in Green Bay are having some fun with the veteran center's last name.During the final day of Packers minicamp on Thursday, left guard Evan Dietrich-Smith changed out the last name on his jersey to read "Friday...
At this point, Graham Harrell is the unquestioned No. 2 quarterback. With Harrell preparing for his big break in the NFL, Aaron Rodgers is doing for Harrell what Brett Favre wouldn't do for Rodgers: be a mentor and teacher.
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- With less than one hour before the start of the Green Bay Packers' second day of minicamp Wednesday, the team canceled in order to conduct a private team function.
It turns out that private team function is clay shooting. Yes, the Packers traded in helmets and footballs for guns and clay targets.
Undrafted rookie wide receiver Dale Moss, who played college...

In a recent post on ESPN.com, Kevin Seifert suggested that the Packers have “committed” to RB James Starks which raises the question of whether or not Starks could perhaps wind up being a breakout player in 2012.
At first glance, many fantasy owners would immediately say no. Green Bay is one of the most prolific passing offenses in the NFL which usually renders any RB hopeful...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Not making it back to the Super Bowl last season has not affected the confidence of the Green Bay Packers whatsoever. Even though a 15-1 regular-season record was essentially wiped out by a disastrous performance in a home playoff loss to the New York Giants, the Packers are returning all of their star players and feeling good about where they stand as the team...

LeRoy Butler would try to guess the number of concussions he suffered as an NFL player, but he knows any attempt to pinpoint specifics is futile.
"The word concussions was not prevalent," said Butler, who played with the Green Bay Packers during his entire NFL career (1990-2001). "When we played, it was just that your bell got rung or you've got cobwebs. It wasn...
