Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers ranks 11th in NFL Network's Top 100 Players of 2014 list. 

Weston Hodkiewicz of The Green Bay Press-Gazette wrote more about the development on July 9: 

"Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers came in at No. 11 in NFL Network's list of the top 100 players of 2014, as voted on by current players. 

"Rodgers was the fourth and final Packers player voted onto the list, joining outside linebacker Clay Matthews (77th), receiver Jordy Nelson (83rd) and running back Eddie Lacy (90th). 

"Rodgers, who was voted the top player in 2012 and sixth a year ago, missed seven games due to a broken collarbone in finishing with 2,536 yards, 17 touchdowns and six interceptions. He's the 11th quarterback to be named in NFL Network's poll. 

"In another offseason survey conducted by ESPN's Mike Sando, a collection of 26 league coaches, executives and quarterbacks saw Rodgers named as one of five top-tier quarterbacks in the league with Drew Brees, Peyton Manning, Tom Brady and Andrew Luck." 

Hodkiewicz teamed up with Mike Vandermause to write a USA Today article which says Rodgers just enjoyed his best spring ever:  

"After missing seven games last season because of a broken collarbone, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is coming back strong. 

"'I think Aaron's had probably his best spring, if I'm going to sit back and try to rank them,' coach Mike McCarthy said. 'I'll probably say the same thing next year. But I think he's in great shape.

"'We changed a lot of things to make things easier for some of the other players, the newer things coming in on offense, and I don't think people realize when you're in Year 10, particularly Year 9 of an offense, the biggest change was for Aaron. But tiwas the best thing for the group, so he had to do a little more studying this year than in prior years. I think he's handled that very well.'

"Rodgers' value was never more apparent than last season when the Packers went 0-4-1 in the five games after he was injured. Green Bay was 6-2 when Rodgers played the whole game, including the NFC North-clinching win in his return vs. the Chicago Bears in Week 17. 

"Rodgers, who just turned 30, said he had a lot left in the tank and learned from being on the sideline last year. 

"'It gives you a greater appreciation for what you do,' he said."

Rodgers is entering his 10th NFL season. He has amassed 24,197 passing yards, 188 touchdowns and 52 interceptions on a 104.9 passer rating in 94 career games, per ESPN stats
