For the past few seasons, many Green Bay Packers fans have bemoaned the fact that Aaron Rodgers did not really spend his offseason working out with teammates. Sure, he and David Bakhtiari worked out together, but most of Rodgers’ offseasons were spent on various trips to Hawaii or Peru. As Rodgers prepares for the 2023 season with the New York Jets, it appears that he is already working out with one of his teammates: Allen Lazard.

The NFL has no rules about players from different teams working out with each other. Former Packers tight end Robert Tonyan has famously spent the last few seasons working out with San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle, among other NFL and collegiate tight ends.
It is interesting, though, that Rodgers has chosen this offseason to work out with teammates in the offseason. Perhaps he has in the past, but it was never posted. Obviously, the circumstances of this offseason have made these kind of posts more high profile than in the past. That being said, one of the last offseason photo we saw of Rodgers was of his trip to Hawaii with then fiancé Shailene Woodley.

Last offseason, Rodgers was rumored to be dating a medicine woman and self-proclaimed witch named Blu:
Oh boy… Apperantly Aaron Rodgers has a new girlfriend and her name is Blu of Earth. Yes you read that right. She claims that she is a witch and medicine woman. She is a interesting character to say the least. pic.twitter.com/Qmnw1hNxfK

If there was any doubt that the trade to the New York Jets was going to happen, it feels like those doubts are assuaged more and more as the NFL Draft draws closer. Rodgers certainly appears more committed than he has in the past couple of years.
