In each of Aaron Rodgers' five seasons as the starter for the Green Bay Packers, his wide receiver unit has looked relatively similar with stalwarts Greg Jennings and Donald Driver among the leaders of the group. With the departure of Jennings in free agency and the retirement of Driver, many are concerned that Rodgers won't have the same level of productivity that he's had in the last four seasons, in which he posted a combined 46-16 record.
Not Rogers, though, as he told Tom Silverstein of The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that the team was productive without Jennings and Driver in 2012 anyway:
"If you watched last year, Jordy (Nelson) again had a great season, was injured for a little bit," he said. "James Jones led the NFL in touchdown receptions and Randall Cobb had 80 catches, so those guys were 1-2-3 options last year because of Greg being injured and Donald didn't have the same role he had in the past."
In 2012, the Packers finished with the NFL's ninth-ranked passing offense, as Rodgers finished with 39 touchdowns and eight interceptions to lead the league with a 108.0 passer rating. While no receivers finished with more than 1,000 yards receiving, Cobb came closest with 954 yards and eight touchdowns followed by Jones with 784 yards and 14 touchdowns.
Jennings finished the season with just 36 receptions for 366 yards after a groin injury allowed him to make just five starts. Regardless, he received a five-year, $45 million deal from the Minnesota Vikings.
