Aaron Rodgers said that the Green Bay Packers need to reload for next season.

After a 44-21 loss in the NFC Championship game to the Atlanta Falcons, sports analysts pointed to injured star receiver, Jordy Nelson, as a large portion of the dismal showing. The defensive backfield and running game of the Green Bay Packers also played a large part in an up and down season for the Wisconsin team. Super Bowl Champion quarterback, Rodgers, however, said that a total rebuild was not necessary for a team that fell one game short of the National Football League Super Bowl.
"We need to reload. I don't think we need to rebuild; we need to reload. We got a lot of players who are young. ... We just need to reload a little bit this offseason," saidRodgers.

Rodgers went so far as to go out on a limb for players on the current Green Bay Packers roster who he believed should be resigned.

"I think we had a lot of great contributions this season from guys we didn't expect starting the season out," said Rodgers. "You got Geronimo Allison, who had a very big year for us. Aaron Ripkowski was fantastic. Jared Cook, I think, needs to be near the top of the priority list, the way that he played this year. The offensive line, keeping those guys together was a big part of our success. I'm really proud of these guys. We battled. We had our backs against the wall for eight weeks in a row and won some big games. We just came up a little short.
