The report says Rodgers did a good job "separating himself as an MVP of organized team activities," while Bostick has to lose weight. He is back from a broken foot suffered last December, but he showed up at 270 pounds.
"I have to get my weight under control, come back and my goal is to be the starter," Bostick said. "I won't settle for anything less. I'm going to compete and do everything I can to be the starter."
The competition for the starting job will come down to Rodgers, Bostick, Ryan Taylor, Jake Stoneburner, Andrew Quarless and rookies Colt Lyerla and Justin Perillo. The Packers also could bring back Jermichael Finley if healthy.
Quarless likely has the inside track to start, but he's dealing with an injury. That has allowed Rodgers and Bostick the chance to make plays.
"I definitely think I can do it all now," Bostick said. "Coach knows that. So sometimes I go in on blocking situations. It's whatever he wants. Whatever they need me to do, I can hold it down when I'm out there."
Coach Mike McCarthy said Rodgers, who got more reps due to Quarless' absence, was "very productive." The report said Rodgers must show "he can be an effective blocker once the pads come on in training camp, but at this point he might be in the lead."

Rodgers deal is four years for just over $2.7 million with just over $506,000 guaranteed in his signing bonus.

No relation to Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the prospect totaled 39 catches for 608 yards and a touchdown in 11 games in 2013. He is known more for his receiving skills than for his blocking skills as he lined up in a number of places. Fun note: His father Richard Rodgers Sr. was on the Cal football team that beat Stanford on the "Band Is On The Field" play in 1982.
Rodgers will battle for a spot on the tight end depth chart in training camp.
