Aaron Rodgers hopes dairy-free diet extends career

Green Bay - Over the past decade, Aaron Rodgers has so openly embraced his Wisconsinite status, its sometimes natural to imagine the California kid growing up on a dairy farm.So Rodgers faced a tough decision this offseason. After a minor knee surgery, he wanted to be healthier. Rodgers said he did research, including discussions with team nutritionist Adam Korzun, about what would be his ideal post-surgery diet. Ultimately, he decided to cut out dairy. So the Green Bay Packers have a quarterback who, at least for the time being, wont eat cheese. I ate more of a vegan diet, Rodgers said, with...

Aaron Rodgers cuts cheese from diet

The most popular athlete in America's dairyland no longer plans to eat cheese. Eddie Lacy isn't the only member of the Green Bay Packers to make some significant dietary changes this offseason. Though it may shock some cheeseheads, Aaron Rodgers has decided to stop eating all diary products as part of his new nutrition plan, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky. "I just wanted to get healthier," Rodgers explained. "I've done a lot of research and talked with Adam Korzun, our nutritionist, and some other friends around the league about how I can extend my career and how I can be and feel...

Jordy Nelson runs routes for Aaron Rodgers in practice, could play in a game now

Green Bay's top receiver isn't participating in team drills until July, but he says he could if necessary. The Green Bay Packers' offense struggled without the services of wide receiver Jordy Nelson in 2015. The inability of the receivers to get separation and threaten the deep middle of the field has been well-documented, and Aaron Rodgers' lack of chemistry with several of his young receivers also appears to have hurt the team's production. Fans hoping for a bounce-back performance from both Nelson and the offense as a whole should be encouraged by the news out of Packers OTAs on...

Cheese Curds, 6/2: Rodgers improves diet, Gunter to get opportunities in the slot

Green Bay's veteran QB is adjusting his approach to food as he ages while a young cornerback is learning a new position this offseason. The Green Bay Packers are no strangers to change. That has been demonstrated in particular over the past few offseasons, as the front office has let a handful of long-tenured veterans go, whether by granting them their outright release or choosing not to re-sign them in free agency. Doing so has left quarterback Aaron Rodgers in a bit of a difficult situation. Some of his closest friends on the team are now gone, so he has been forced to adapt his approach...

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers says Patriots QB Tom Brady was a major influence this offseason

The Packers QB wants to follow in Brady's footsteps. Every single NFL quarterback should aspire to be like New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. That's not even a question. No quarterback in the history of the sport has been able to combine individual and team success with the same longevity as Brady. Brady credits his offseason muscle preparation as a key reason for his health, and puts a heavy emphasis on how he eats. He released a "Nutrition Manual" so people can eat like him to improve their health. Coffee isn't allowed. I'm not on board. But count Green Bay Packers quarterback...

Rankings show Andrew Luck still considered a top-ten quarterback

The offseason is the time of year where ranking reign supreme. We see all sorts of lists ranking the best coaches, players, quarterbacks, teams, offseason moves, and more, and we've covered a lot of them so far. There's often no ranking that generates more debate than quarterbacks, however, and recently there have been several. These rankings reveal first and foremost that there's really no consensus when it comes to quarterbacks. The closest we might come to having a consensus is Aaron Rodgers at number one, but even then there are plenty who would disagree with that. These rankings...

Cheese Curds, 6/1: Rodgers/Favre/Starr picture exists; Adams and Jones hope for breakout

What will Aaron Rodgers do with himself when his career is over? What is Davante Adams doing to make his third year successful? Read today's Cheese Curds to find out. Green Bay Packers fans have been waiting years for a chance to see the trio of Bart Starr, Brett Favre, and Aaron Rodgers together at once.

However, don't lose hope, because in today's curds, we have news that...

The Ravens don't have OTAs this week. Here's what they should do instead

The Ravens had rookies in full pads at the start of practice during their minicamp last month, which they definitely shouldn't have, and now they'll go without a week of organized team activities this week, which they definitely should take advantage of. Today would have been the first of three...

Wikipedia knows who really owns the Chicago Bears: Aaron Rodgers

Having some fun or spreading the real truth? You be the judge. The internet is a wonderful and terrifying place, which has the capacity to amaze and amuse. Wikipedia, being part of the internet, is no different. Last night it was amusement on the mind for one Green Bay Packers fan. Up until Sunday night, somebody on Wikipedia had been foolishly trying to convince the world that Virginia Halas McCaskey was the owner of the Chicago Bears. Packers fans, though, know that isn't the case any more: @N0tAaronRodgers pic.twitter.com/ec14soJDzQ— Beans™ (@DavidJGarza10) May 30, 2016 In the...

Cheese Curds, 5/27: On Ty Montgomery's slow recovery & Eddie Lacy's workout regimen

Green Bay's players spent their offseasons doing drastically different things, from rehabbing on an exercise bike to getting in shape with the help of daily show-shoveling contests. The Green Bay Packers are looking forward to a number of returns this season. By "returns", we mean a few things: one is players returning from injury, while another involves returns to elite form from players who showed it in years past. Often these are related as well - for Aaron Rodgers, for example, his return to MVP form may depend on the return of his receivers and offensive line from injury. One of the...
