Jets' Aaron Rodgers wraps 'fun' OTAs with perfect attendance - ESPN
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, whose offseason began with trade rumors and his celebrated darkness retreat, ended it Friday with perfect attendance and a bright outlook for his first season with the New York Jets.
"The last six weeks have been about the most fun I've had in a while," Rodgers said after the Jets' final OTA practice.
The Jets, who cancelled next week's mandatory minicamp, now begin a six-week break before training camp.
Rodgers, who skipped voluntary practices in recent years with the Green Bay Packers, attended all 10 OTA sessions. He didn't participate in a few early practices because of a strained right calf, but he showed up every day and was a vocal presence on the field and in meetings. He ended Friday's practice on a positive note -- a completion to wide receiver Garrett Wilson.

Initially, Rodgers had planned to return to his home in California before the end of OTAs to work with his personal trainers, but he decided it was best to rehab his calf injury at the team facility. He said the extra time in New Jersey was beneficial for different reasons.
