Packers' Aaron Rodgers calls a play during the second half against the Falcons on Oct. 5 at Lambeau Field. Content Exchange

GREEN BAY — Aaron Rodgers needed to be convinced. At age 36, he may not be the football version of the crotchety-old-man-yelling-at-clouds meme just yet, but even Rodgers will admit that he was more than a little set in his ways.

For most of his first 12 years as the Green Bay Packers’ starting quarterback — including last season, when Matt LaFleur replaced Mike McCarthy as coach — Rodgers was philosophically opposed to dispatching receivers and backs in pre-snap motion. It’s not like McCarthy’s offensive playbook was completely devoid of motion, but it was only used occasionally.
