Rodgers-Woodson

Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers has no doubt about the name of the best defensive player he ever faced — it’s Charles Woodson. Rodgers and the future Hall of Fame defensive back were teammates from 2006-to-2012.

Momentum At Home

The Wisconsin Badgers will open the 2019 season in Tampa against South Florida, but then it’s no traveling for a month-and-a-half.

Easier Than Most

Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Carl Lawson says he thinks Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is easier to sack than most N-F-L signal-callers. He tackled Rodgers three times when the teams met in the 2017 season, although he admits the future Hall of Famer led the Packers to a comeback victory in that game. Lawson says Rodgers…
