Packers' slot question: Aaron Rodgers' 'dear friend' Randall Cobb or rookie Amari Rodgers?

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The first week of training camp here has revealed an early test of the Green Bay Packers' shadow general manager, aka quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Two slot receivers -- one a veteran whom Rodgers campaigned to acquire, the other a rookie drafted when Rodgers was contemplating his future -- have each gotten work with the starters.

Packers fans and fantasy managers alike want to know how playing time and targets will shake out between Randall Cobb and Amari Rodgers. The Packers actual general manager, Brian Gutekunst, expressed confidence last week coach Matt LaFleur would find roles for both players.
