“We’re going to play our best guys when the season starts,” Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said after Day 1 of joint practices against the Saints.

GREEN BAY — Aaron Rodgers sounded an alarm on Tuesday afternoon.

Not the kind that pierces your ears for minutes and sends everyone into a panic, but this warning bell could be heard loud and clear inside the Green Bay Packers’ locker room. I heard it, as did other reporters gathered around the veteran quarterback’s locker after a mistake-filled performance by the offense in a joint practice with the New Orleans Saints.
