Aaron Rodgers remains as competitive as ever going into his 10th season with the Green Bay Packers.

A first-round draft pick in 2005, Rodgers is now a veteran in the locker room. He's working with more younger players at receiver and tight end during offseason workouts.

Rodgers says it's not an added burden. Coach Mike McCarthy has called his star quarterback an "all-in" guy, and Rodgers is known for full participation in offseason activities.

McCarthy says that some of the changes to the offense in the offseason helped make it easier on newer players, though in the end Rodgers may have had the biggest change because he had to do a little more studying than prior years.

McCarthy says Rodgers has handled things very well this offseason.
