Rodgers is one of the better candidates for a kick returner job that is likely open to competition.

Summary

Considering Matt Forte played 92 percent of the snaps last season, it's hard to see how Rodgers fits into the equation. Forte is the type of back who has played the lion's share of the snaps his entire career. It's unlikely he cuts it back anywhere near the amount Rodgers would need to play in order to hold significant value. Rodgers is a very versatile player who can beat a defense in multiple ways. He can run, he can catch and he can block. He can line up in the backfield, the flat or out wide. If Rodgers can earn snaps, the creative mind of OC Adam Gase will find ways to use the shifty running back. (May 19)
