Lazard prepares for new role with same tenacity

Allen lazard was the Packers breakout star in the second half of the season, but it almost didn't happen. The undrafted wide receiver was cut right before the year, then quickly re-signed thanks to a strong training camp.

He goes into the 2020 season as the clearly established number two receiver on the team and doesn't have to worry about being cut. But he refuses to change his mentality.

"Personally i'm going to approach it the same way," Lazard says. "Just looking at my journey through this NFL and everything. That's just where i was able to make my biggest strides is when I was backed up against the wall and didn't really know where my position was or if I'd even have a job so I want to keep that same mentality, same mindset."
