Aaron Rodgers is certainly focusing his offseason training on the goal of staying healthy in 2014.
Per ESPN.com's Rob Demovsky, Rodgers told reporters at OTA practice on May 29 that he lost 11 pounds after the 2013 season and has increased the amount of yoga he did this offseason to improve his flexibility, in the hopes of preventing injury.
"A lot of flexibility's helping with those injuries as you get older," Rodgers said, also noting that he initially shied away from heavy lifting and "shoulder stuff" right after the season ended.
Rodgers didn't struggle to get back to form after returning from his collarbone injury against Chicago in Week 17. In that game, and the Wild Card game against the 49ers, Rodgers passed for 495 yards and three touchdowns, completing an average 65 percent of his throws.
He did, however, have an uncharacteristic two interceptions in his first game after the injury versus the Bears—a rare occurrence he isn't likely to repeat often in 2014.
The emergence of Eddie Lacy as a legitimate threat on every down, combined with the new weapons the Packers gave Rodgers this offseason in Davante Adams, Jared Abbrederis and Jeff Janis, should give Rodgers even more opportunities to excel next season.
He'll be able to pull off more convincing play action to Lacy, and the receivers' diverse route tree will keep opponents guessing about Rodgers' reads. The team around him is set to help Rodgers have one of the best seasons of his career in 2014.
