Aaron Rodgers in an Instagram post: A few years ago we were criticized for locking arms in solidarity before the game. It has NEVER been about an anthem or a flag. Not then. Not now. Listen with an open heart, let's educate ourselves, and then turn word and thought into action. #wakeupamerica#itstimeforchange  #loveoverfear❤️ #solidarity  #libertyandjusticeforall #all

Packers G Lane Taylor has agreed to rework the last year of his contract. ‪His base salary is now $1.5 million (down from $3.8 million) but he has the opportunity to earn an additional $1.5 million based on playing time. This gives Taylor a great chance to stay on the roster and compete for a starting job and make back a good chunk of his money and gives the Packers plenty of options to play the best five on the line.

Matt LaFleur on his virtual work with Jordan Love: “We have got to try to show him as many good examples of what it looks like because the challenge is he's going out on his own and working those different techniques and fundamentals but you're not there to be able to correct him or show him the right way. So we've got to present as much to him so he can get that good visual so that he can go out there and replicate that." (via ESPN Wisconsin radio)

Matt LaFleur on his relationship with Aaron Rodgers since the Jordan Love pick: “We talk four times a week whenever we get those opportunities to meet in those individual meetings, and I feel really good about where we're at. We both understand that this is a business. When that whole thing went down it was just one of those situations where there were a couple of guys targets that had just previously been picked and Jordan was the next guy on the board.” (via ESPN Wisconsin radio).
