The Second-Year Player that I am MOST Excited About

  2 years ago     125 Views     1 Comment  

There has been a lot of talk in Packernation about second year players. Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Davante Adams, and Richard Rodgers all made an impact last season and if they take a leap this year, could be special. Adams in particular has Aaron Rodgers raving after OTA's, and at 6'2 and 216 pounds, Adams could add yet another receiving threat - this time, throughout the season.

Coaching is where I want to be...This has been a very fun year." This is important for two reasons: It shows me that McCarthy has left behind the…
