"There are no concerns," Rodgers said. "You've got to come and compete every year. It just makes the group better, bringing more guys. It makes everybody work harder at practice. We're going to work collectively. We're going to learn from each other. And we're going to make each other better each and every day."
Rodgers caught 52 passes and scored four touchdowns last season, two as a receiver. He endorsed the drafting of Freeman.
"He's a good running back," Rodgers said. "Comes from a winning program. Fast guy: a guy that's willing to learn, willing to learn from the older guys. He's a good piece to our puzzle in the backfield."
"We're going to be a better running football team, starting with the offensive line and progressing throughout the team," Koetter said. "We'll be more committed to it."
"I've always prided myself on being able to go stronger through the game," he said. "With having favorable boxes, which I anticipate, I think we'll be quite OK."
Rodgers has been unable to come back from a concussion. Weatherspoon is dealing with a knee injury, and has not practiced this week.
Rodgers is dealing with concussion-like symptoms, and also missed Wednesday. It's starting to look like he won't be available Week 17.
