Today in an interview with ESPN 540 Aaron Rodgers was asked about his new quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt. Rodgers went on to say great things about the former Buffalo Bills back-up.
“As far as Alex is concerned, him and I have been good buddies from his first day here,” Rodgers said on his ESPN 540 Milwaukee radio show this week.
Van Pelt spent nine season with the Buffalo Bills, mostly as a backup quarterback. McAdoo never played the position at any level. Van Pelt also has previous experience as a quarterbacks coach, having served in that capacity for both the Bills (2008-09) and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers(2010-11). Rodgers also has heard good things about Van Pelt from former Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.
“Ryan and I are friends in the league, and Ryan got to play for Alex,” Rodgers said. “From the start, I’ve heard good things about him. Alex gets the game. He played the position and if he’s the guy, I know it’s going to be a really smooth transition, and we’d have a lot of fun together.”
