The Green Bay Packers had three players named as Pro Bowl players this year. Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams, and Kenny Clark were given that honor. Today, Rodgers, Adams, and inside linebacker De’Vondre Campbell were named First Team All-Pro’s by the Associated Press. It is the second year in a row that Rodgers and Adams have been First Team All-Pro’s. This is Campbell’s first ever All-Pro nod.
Aaron Rodgers’ 2021 Season
Aaron Rodgers had one of the best seasons of his career in 2021. Despite the dramatic offseason, when Rodgers reported to camp he was all business. This past season, Rodgers threw 37 touchdowns and just four interceptions while also passing for over 4,000 yards.
A favorite to win his fourth career MVP award, Aaron Rodgers seems to only have gotten better under coach Matt LaFleur’s system. Over the past three seasons, Rodgers has thrown 101 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. He has also made the All-Pro team twice, matching the amount of times he earned that honor before LaFleur arrived.
Davante Adams’ 2021 Season
After tying the Packers’ franchise record for touchdowns in a season last year, Davante Adams put on quite the encore. In 2021, Adams broke his own record for receptions in a season (also set last year) by hauling in 123 catches. He also had 1,553 receiving yards, breaking Jordy Nelson’s record of 1,519.
Throughout the season, Adams hit several historical milestones, which can be read about here. Having made five Pro Bowls and two All-Pro First Teams in a row, there is no doubt that Davante Adams is in the midst of what will turn out to be a dominating prime. The question is if he will spend the rest of it with the Packers?
De’Vondre Campbell’s 2021 Season
The Green Bay Packers were able to sign De’Vondre Campbell late in the offseason after the veteran linebacker did not get much interest from teams. It is safe to say that he will not have that issue this offseason after getting his first career All-Pro nod.
This season, Campbell set a career high with 146 total tackles, 102 of which were solo tackles. He also added two interceptions, two sacks, and two forced fumbles. Quarterbacks could not do much against Campbell in the passing game, either. They had a just 74.9 passer rating against him.
