Rodgers wants consistency out of receivers

NOW: Rodgers wants consistency out of receivers

GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Packers training camp is a crowded place this week thanks to some visitors from the Big Easy.

The Packers are working out for a couple days with the New Orleans Saints, the team they'll play in a preseason game on Friday.

This is the third time the Packers have held joint practices under Matt LaFleur.

Aaron Rodgers voiced his displeasure the first year with the Texans, saying it was vanilla. He felt differently Tuesday and was even surprised there weren't any fights.

The joint practice actually started on different fields before converging for some 11-on-11 team periods.

Rodgers felt the offense was okay for the most part. There were a couple of touchdowns in the team's red zone period and deep passes that excited the crowd.

But there as one area of concern for the future hall of famer -- mistakes.

The Packers had false starts and drops, and even some players running the wrong routes.

Still four weeks away from the opener, Rodgers is just looking for more consistency on the outside.

"They are rookies, but they are NFL players and what's been on film hasn't been good enough. There's been some splash plays, but there's been a lot of mistakes," Rodgers said. "There's a standard we're gonna hold our guys to and I know the coaches are holding them to that standard as well."

While there weren't any fights, there was plenty of chirping. Both teams' defense let it be known when they made a play, especially Rasul Douglas on the Saints' offense. And on the other end, Rodgers was not shy when the Packers scored a touchdown.
