Tolzien spoke to ESPN radio affiliate 100.5 FM's "Jump Around" show on Monday, detailing his offseason work. "I don't know if there's one particular...

Aaron Rodgers says Scott Tolzien's approach 'separates him from other guys I've been around'

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw some praise towards fellow signal caller Scott Tolzien as he battles to secure the No. 2 spot on the roster. Given recent history, the backup position has played a huge part in the Packers past couple of seasons and having the right guy waiting in the wings is a lesson the team learned in 2013, when they almost missed the playoff...

Packers Number Two Quarterback Tolzien Ready If Needed

The second string quarterback for the Green Bay Packers is much like your local medical rescue squad: you want the best talent there is but hope and pray that you never need them. The Packers made a subtle but bold move this off-season when they replaced their primary backup quarterback. Gone is the security blanket provided by Matt Flynn.
