I mean, the more I watched his film, the more I realized Rodgers isn’t just some fill-in type. That dude is nice running the rock. He has real good patience on zone plays and knows how to follow his blockers.
Limited Mens DeForest Buckner Jersey Rodgers definitely has quite a bit of wiggle to him and can shake a defender out of his socks in the open field. His jump cuts are also nasty and saved him many times from being tackled for a loss immediately after taking the hand off. I am pretty sure he would dust Martin in a foot race so he has plenty of speed.
But let me tell you, the most impressive thing to me about Rodgers’ film was that this guy, who is all of 5’6 and 205 pounds, liked to be the hammer rather than the nail when it comes to contact. As good as he was at making people miss, Rodgers also had no compunction about trying to run cats over on occasion, too.
Julian Edelman’s torn ACL takes away what has been a major component in Tom Brady’s offensive attack. Since 2001, the Patriots have relied heavily on a rangy slot receiver to act as the star quarterback’s safety blanket. When he’s needed clutch play, there’s always been a shifty, undersized, sure-handed wideout there to move the chains.
The tradition started with Troy Brown, blew up with Wes Welker, and has been in Edelman’s capable hands since 2013, when Welker signed with the Broncos. In those four years as a starter, he’s averaged 89 receptions, 957 yards, and five touchdowns despite appearing in fewer than 14 games per season (on average). He’s led his team in either catches or receiving yards every year but 2015, when he missed seven games due to injury.

The Patriots will have to find a way to win without him in 2017. A torn ACL will force him to miss the entire upcoming season, taking one of Brady’s favorite targets off the table in his age-40 season. A quick look at the numbers shows New England has certainly benefited from the former seventh-round pick’s presence in the lineup.
