While 29-year-old wide receiver Sammy Watkins has yet to play a regular-season game for the Green Bay Packers, he’s seemingly already mesmerized by the talents of the franchise’s MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
During a recent interview with the Green Bay Packers official website, the team’s new pass catcher called Rodgers “amazing” while explaining why he’s on “another level” than fellow otherworldly quarterback Patrick Mahomes, whom he played with last season.
Sammy Watkins says Aaron Rodgers in on a different level than Patrick Mahomes
“I think Pat is incredibly good, but A-Rod is on a whole ‘nother level,” Watkins told Cobb. (And when McCarren repeated that quote to Watkins, Watkins didn’t deny saying it.)
“He’s amazing,” Watkins said of Rodgers. “How he controls the ball. How he puts everyone in place. I’ve been with a lot of quarterbacks, and I’ve never seen them carry themselves like Aaron Rodgers,” Watkins said in an interview with the official Green Bay Packers website.
