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.
