"I think that's the fun thing about Marty ? he's really taken advantage of those opportunities, he's been here since the beginning of the offseason program," Rodgers said. "But I think he's looked for those places where he can be a leader,Cheap NBA Jerseys, and that's what you look for from veteran players."
"Now, the fact that you're making transactions compared to prior years is obviously a little different. But it's all part of the business ... and at the end of the day you're just trying to get better," he added.
The latest addition is Quinton Dial, a 6-foot-5,Cheap Jerseys, 318-pound defensive lineman who signed on Tuesday after being released by the San Francisco 49ers. Dial, Cheap Football Jerseys China a fifth-year player out of Alabama, had 175 tackles and 4 1/2 sacks over 46 games, including 32 starts, in San Francisco.

The Packers also lost some key vets, too, including pass rusher Julius Peppers, offensive lineman T.J. Lang and safety Micah Hyde. Those three players especially provided forms of leadership.
"Well, I think you have to realize that any time you acquire a player, whether it's through the draft, free agency, regardless of the time of year, it's a process. It's a process that's always going on," coach Mike McCarthy said before practice Wednesday.
"I think his measurables are obviously the first thing that jumps out at you when you meet him and have the opportunity to compete against him," McCarthy said.
Other that pass-catching tight Martellus Bennett, the new additions aren't really big splashes. Most of the signees have solid resumes ? players who will fill depth but won't necessarily have starring roles.
