Packers WRs meet with QBs, offensive staff following Rodgers tirade
The meeting came after quarterback Aaron Rodgers ripped the young receiving group for a lack of consistency Tuesday, criticizing them for "a lot of drops" and "a lot of bad route decisions." However, Rodgers reportedly wasn't the one who decided to have the meeting.
Seventh-round rookie Samori Toure said Wednesday that the young wideouts were given advice and reminded of the franchise's prestigious past during the session.
"Basically, letting us know that the Green Bay receiving corps has always been held to a super-high standard," Toure said. "All the legends who have been through here. It's just about us carrying on that standard and stepping up."
Fourth-rounder Romeo Doubs added that Rodgers explained to the wideouts what he likes based on specific concepts or looks he gets at the line of scrimmage.
"He just wants us to see what he sees, so then that way we can be able to react faster, play faster, and just be able to dominate and continue to be who we are," Doubs said.
Drops plagued Green Bay during Friday's preseason opener against the San Francisco 49ers and Tuesday's practice, prompting Rodgers to air his grievances publicly.
The Packers are expecting contributions from their young receiving corps after trading All-Pro wideout Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders in March.
