Morning Buzz: Waiting on an Aaron Rodgers deal
Welcome to your Morning Buzz, rounding up news and views regarding the Green Bay Packers from around the web and here at PackersNews.com. Grab a strong cup of coffee and get caught up on everything you need to know about the Packers.
We’ll start with Tom Silverstein’s look at the running backs in the latest positional review in our ongoing series.
In a 2017 draft stocked with running backs, the Green Bay Packers selected three, all on the third day, all different in height, weight and ability.
It might turn out to be the smartest thing they did all year.
When converted wide receiver Ty Montgomery proved fragile — as history suggested he would — Jamaal Williams (fourth round), Aaron Jones (sixth) and Devante Mays (seventh) were left to pick up the pieces.
In the end, Williams proved the most durable and complete, Jones the most explosive and Mays the most anonymous. In some form or fashion, they represent the future of the Packers' running game.
