    April 15 at 4:14am In Green Bay, the Matt LaFleur-Aaron Rodgers Partnership Begins

    The first time Packers coach Matt LaFleur met Davante Adams, the star wideout asked his new boss if he'd be on edge addressing the team at the start of the offseason program on April 8. Coolly, LaFleur answered, No, I'm not gonna be nervous. It took 30 seconds for him to double back on that, and grab Adams again.

    "Heck yeah, I'm gonna be nervous," he told him.

    So when that time came, seven days ago in the bowels of Lambeau Field, and LaFleur ran into Adams on his way to the team meeting room, he affirmed what he'd said before--those butterflies were still fluttering in his stomach.
