LeRoy Butler wants Packers to get receivers DK Metcalf, Michael Thomas

GREEN BAY – The Green Bay Packers are operating in a finite championship window. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers signed a new deal this offseason, but the 38-year-old playing even three more years after considering retirement is suspect. And the offense is now tasked with replacing dynamic receiver Davante Adams, after he was traded to the Las Vegas Raiders.

Former Packers safety and newly elected Pro Football Hall of Famer LeRoy Butler knows a thing or two about what it takes to win the Lombardi Trophy, having played for Green Bay’s 1996 Super Bowl champions. And Butler advises fans to trust those building the roster that will chase a championship.

“I would tell them not to panic as yet. Because some people are thinking because you’ve lost so much on offense, you can’t get to the Super Bowl. I would be patient and give the team room enough to get it right, ”Butler said this week at the Red Smith Awards banquet in Appleton.
