Jim Owczarski and Olivia Reiner discuss the fate of Packers’ backup quarterback Tim Boyle and whether or not he will make the initial list.
Welcome to your Morning Buzz, which brings news and opinions about the Green Bay Packers on the web and here at PackersNews.com.
We’ll start with NBC Sports ‘Peter King, who credits Aaron Rodgers for being “gracious” in his first public comments on the Packers’ decision to recruit quarterback Jordan Love in the first round. But King suspects Rodgers of not being entirely honest about the Packers’ failure to write a wide receiver.
I think it’s great for Aaron Rodgers, his teammate, to bury his feeling that the Packers draft a quarterback in the first round and are magnanimous about it in his first public comments three weeks after the fact. Maybe it took him so long to calm down (doubt it, but who knows), but time was the Packers’ friend. He was graceful, probably 83% honest (“not really thrilled with the choice” was probably his understatement for “pretty much blowing a joint that Brian Gutekunst chose a quarter instead of a large one”), but that can’t not help Rodgers or his team be at war with the front office. I think it will be a good guy for Jordan Love to learn, especially in terms of decision making; Love threw terrible interceptions in the state of Utah.

Green Bay Packers – Choosing battles with Aaron Rodgers is not smart. Even less to give her to work is even less relevant.
