Carl Lawson: Aaron Rodgers Is Easier To Sack Than Most QBs

Jul 9, 2019 8:43 AM

Aaron Rodgers was sacked 49 times last season and was on pace to be sacked more than 50 times in 2017 despite playing in just seven games.

Carl Lawson, an edge rusher for the Cincinnati Bengals, sacked Rodgers 2.5 times in 2017. The defensive end told NFL Network's Good Morning Football that Rodgers is actually easier to sack than some other quarterbacks despite his mobility because he's always looking for the big play.

"Honestly, I think it's easier to sack Aaron Rodgers than most quarterbacks," Lawson said. "He sits there, and he pats the ball. At the same time, sacking him don't mean nothing if you don't do it for four quarters. You know, he came back against us.

"So, I mean, he's an easier quarterback for me to sack personally, because he sits there, and he probably gets eight to 10 yards in the pocket. He's got a great left tackle in (David Bakhtiari). So, he just sits there, he waits, he waits, getting that read. When he gets sacked, he doesn't get flustered. I only saw him get frustrated maybe one time when I did sack him, which was the third and a half sack that they took off (negated by a penalty)..."

Randall Cobb: Packers Are An 'Ex-Girlfriend That Broke Up With You'

Jul 1, 2019 8:39 AM

Randall Cobb is a member of the Dallas Cowboys after spending his entire career with the Green Bay Packers.

The Cowboys and Packers play one another on Oct. 6.

"It's like the ex-girlfriend that broke up with you," Cobb said. "When you see her five years later, you hope you're in a better situation than you were before -- married, with kids, and you're able to say, 'Yeah, I did better without you.'"

The Packers never extended Cobb a contract offer in free agency.

"I didn't really have any conversation personally. I don't know how much conversation there was between my agent and the Packers organization," Cobb said. "But I know there was never an offer put on the table -- before or after the offer from Dallas and a couple other teams. I think it kind of made my decision easier. If the Packers would have made an offer, I would obviously have had to weigh that decision. But I'm very excited and very happy to be down in Dallas. I think it's a great situation and I look forward to this season."
