~For two summers now, Aaron Rodgers has enrolled in a second quarterbacks school.

The first has been with the Green Bay Packers, whose quarterbacks coach, Tom Clements, runs an annual session from March through early May as part of the offseason workout program.

“I’m just trying to keep up with him when we’re out there, because he busts his butt. He puts in his time. He’s like the leader among leaders in that group.”

The second has been after the final minicamp in late June, when Rodgers returns to his offseason home in San Diego and works out several days a week with a group of NFL and college players. There, the tutor is New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who was voted Super Bowl MVP in February after leading the NFL in passer rating in the regular season.

Brees wasn’t around as much for this year’s workouts because he was on a Super Bowl MVP “world tour,” as Rodgers called it, appearing on national TV talk shows, throwing out the first ball at a New York Yankees game and the like. But he was there part-time as a role model even though Rodgers has become a top NFL quarterback in his own right.
