LeRoy Butler suggests Packers bench Aaron Rodgers

It is a very likely possibility that the Packers could lose their next three games. Green Bay Packers legend LeRoy Butler said Rodgers should be benched if they fall to 3-9.

“OK, say you lose three more games,” Butler said on CBS Sports’ Maggie and Perloff show. “Look at that in perspective. You got the Cowboys — best defense — I mean the defense — Micah Parsons, oh my goodness. And then you play, when they put my name up in the ring of honor, the Titans. They got a young quarterback. That defense gets after you as well, then you got the Eagles, best team in the league.”

“After that point, if you’ve lost those games, you’ve got to get Jordan Love in there at some point, because there’s no playoffs. I mean, there’s no playoffs, you’re not in the playoffs. You have to find out at some point can Jordan Love play because you can’t get rid of Aaron Rodgers because of his contract. But you can find a way to get Jordan Love some work to just kind of find out what you’re going to have in a few years.”
