Rodgers reunited with childhood idol

Amari Rodgers remembers watching his new teammate Randall Cobb when he was just a little kid.

The former Clemson standout grew up in the same town as Cobb, Knoxville, Tennessee and in elementary school watched Cobb play high school ball at Alcoa High School right down the road from Rodgers’ hometown.

Now Rodgers is reunited with his childhood idol after the Packers traded an undisclosed draft pick to the Houston Texans to bring Cobb back to Green Bay. And for Rodgers it’s a dream come true.

“It’s a dream come true to be honest, I remember being a kid and just being able to work out with him was like the most amazing thing ever,” Rodgers said in a press conference Saturday.
