You know it's a busy day around the Green Bay Packers when starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers does not have the largest contingent of reporters around his locker.

But with Julius Peppers making his first appearance in a green and gold uniform, some significant changes in defensive coordinator Dom Capers’ plans coming to light, new high-profile tight end Colt Lyerla talking to reporters for the first time since he signed and more news in the comeback attempt by Jermichael Finley, it's almost understandable that the Packers' most important player might fly a bit under the radar.

But there was at least one significant development to come from Rodgers after Thursday's OTA practice, the first that was open to reporters this spring: Rodgers told ESPN’s Bob Holtzman that he has lost 11 pounds this offseason.

That would put Rodgers under 220 pounds, likely the lightest weight of his NFL playing career.
