Recently, Amari Rodgers went into where things went wrong during his time with the Green Bay Packers. Rodgers was selected by the Packers with the 85th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. He would serve as a wide receiver and would also return kicks and punts.
When Green Bay head coach Matt LaFleur was asked about Rodgers’ departure, he was quoted as saying, “Amari, that one hurts a lot just in terms of I know how much this meant to him, and he did everything we asked him to do. He was a great teammate, he works his tail off. You could see him really growing just in terms of overall knowledge, but we are in a production-based business. It’s unfortunate, it really is. I feel for him. He’s a guy that I’ve got a lot of respect for and care for deeply. Sometimes, that’s the best thing for guys in this league, is you go through a little adversity, you get a fresh start somewhere else. I wish him nothing but the best”.
While LaFleur had nothing but good things to say about Rodgers and his time with the Packers, the second-year returner would sing a much different tune. He was quoted as saying, “It’s part of the league. It happens to a lot of people. It doesn’t work out somewhere, but another opportunity opens up somewhere else. Everything is not going to be peaches and cream. You just got to realize that just you just have to continue to grow and continue to believe in yourself and your craft and in the next opportunity just, just make the best of it”.
Shortly after being waived by the Packers, he would join the Houston Texans. In his six games with the team, he would make 12 catches on 17 targets for 154 yards and one touchdown. With the Texans using the second overall pick to select C.J. Stroud, Rodgers could end up having a breakout season if he makes a quick connection with his rookie quarterback.
With Houston not having much of a wide receiver room, Rodgers is more than capable of playing a major role in the offense. It is clear that he is dead set on making the Packers regret cutting him from the roster, and he will have a prime opportunity to prove them wrong in the 2023 season.
