GREEN BAY, Wis. — By his estimation, it took Aaron Rodgers three years to learn the first version of the West Coast offense the Green Bay Packers ran under former coaches Mike Sherman and Mike McCarthy.
He expects to have new coach Matt LaFleur’s system down in about three months.
“I think it’s probably a lot quicker learning curve having played 11 seasons as the starter,” Rodgers said after Tuesday’s OTA practice. “But kind of personally I’d like to feel really good about it by the end of minicamp leaving here in June and feel good coming back in training camp and being able to spit plays out formationally with motions and concepts quickly and understand all the checks and intricacies of the offense. That’s kind of the expectation.”
That means Rodgers and the rest of the full squad will work through the June 11-13 minicamp.
McCarthy had excused Rodgers and selected veterans from the mandatory minicamp the previous three years.
It also could mean Rodgers might play more in the preseason. Last summer, he played in only one series (seven plays) in one game. The previous two preseasons he played 26 snaps each
