EAGAN Stefon Diggs Jersey , Minn. — With another dangerous quarterback opposing the Minnesota Vikings this week, the helmet on cornerback Xavier Rhodes in practice Wednesday was a welcomed sight.The performance by his replacement in the last game against New Orleans was equally encouraging.More Vikings coveragePhotos of the Week: 7/21/19 – 7/27/19Rookie Bradbury is central figure to Vikings’ overhauled offensive lineVikings depth at cornerback being tested, Hughes still not clearedPlayers to watch at Minnesota Vikings 2019 training campTop Tweets: Vikings WR Diggs makes push for All-NFL Style TeamWhile Rhodes watched the Vikings lose to the Saints in sweats from the sideline with a foot injury, rookie Holton Hill took over at right cornerback and helped hold Drew Brees to 120 passing yards, his lowest total in a full game since arriving in New Orleans in 2006.Granted, Brees completed 18 of 23 attempts. The Saints put up 30 points. Their three-score lead in the fourth quarter dictated a run-heavy strategy down the stretch. Still, had the savvy 39-year-old Brees seen more of a vulnerability in Hill, it’s a given he would have attacked him more than he did.“Holton played great,” Rhodes said.Hill was credited with five solo tackles and one pass breakup.“Things have slowed down like quite a bit,” said Hill Harrison Smith Jersey , who was undrafted out of Texas due to character concerns following a suspension for violating team rules that cut short his final season with the Longhorns. He later told NFL Network he sought treatment for marijuana use.The Vikings pursued Hill aggressively after the draft despite their then-solid depth at cornerback, giving out one of the biggest signing bonuses in the league to a rookie free agent. That decision has proved prescient following the retirement of Terence Newman and then the recent injury to Rhodes.“I don’t take that for granted. I cherish every rep, every second I’m out there,” Hill said.Hill praised Rhodes for advising him on technique and noting wide receiver splits from the sideline throughout the game against the Saints, but the most important message he received from his mentor was to simply play with confidence.“Once you have that, there’s like no stopping you,” Hill said. “Basically the only person that can stop you is you.”Rhodes, who was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, was bummed about missing a prime-time game against the Saints.“I’m here to play football, and not being out there to play football is pretty frustrating Dru Samia Minnesota Vikings Jerseys ,” Rhodes said.With continued improvement this week, Rhodes ought to be able to return Sunday to face Detroit. Matthew Stafford and the Lions have beaten the Vikings in six of the 10 matchups since Rhodes arrived as a rookie in 2013.“You never can count him out,” Rhodes said. “He’s accurate with his throws. He trusts and believes in his receivers. He throws the ball up and lets them get it. He scrambles. If the receiver’s not open, he finds a way to gain yards instead of lose yards. He’s just a good all-around quarterback.” Aaron Rodgers wasn't worried about contract negotiations dragging on. The Packers quarterback has been around long enough to not let such things bother him.Nevertheless, the two-time NFL MVP said Thursday he was glad the team and agent David Dunn were able to agree on a reported four-year, $134 million extension before he opens his 14th NFL season — and 11th as the Packers' starting quarterback — on Sept. 9 against Chicago at Lambeau Field."There was never a timetable in my mind," Rodgers said during a conference call. "Had we gotten nothing done before the regular season starts, in my mind it wasn't something we couldn't get done at some point, even if that meant pushing off to the bye week. But the last couple weeks, things picked up progressively each day and I kind of felt about a week ago that this was going to be a reality before the season started."The 34-year-old Rodgers missed most of last season after breaking his right collarbone in October. He can now focus on getting the Packers back to the Super Bowl for the first time since the 2010 season and leading them through the 2023 season when he'll turn 40. Rodgers had two years left on the five-year Minnesota Vikings Jerseys 2019 , $110 million extension he signed in 2013.He said he signed the extension Wednesday with Packers chief contract negotiator Russ Ball, general manager Brian Gutekunst and team president/CEO Mark Murphy in the room.Gutekunst took over as general manager in January from Ted Thompson, who selected Rodgers with the 24th pick in the 2005 draft. Thompson made the call even though the Packers already had a future Pro Football Hall of Famer in Brett Favre.Rodgers became the starter after Favre was traded to the New York Jets in 2008. Favre went on to play two seasons with Minnesota before retiring after the 2010 season."Aaron is a rare player. He has been since he really took over the reins here. His level of play has been at the highest level and continues to be," Gutekunst said. "I think coming off last year, which was disappointing for all of us (because of) his injury, it's been impressive to see him come back and compete and play with the edge — certainly no drop-off or any physical limitations at all. For those of you who've been out there on a daily basis have seen that. We expect that and look forward to years to come of that kind of play."And Rodgers has those same expectations."I think all it really does is just solidify my standing as a part of the future of this football team," he said. "It just solidifies my spot on the squad and reinforces to the guys in the locker room that I'm going to be here. Also, that I've got to pick up a lot more dinners."
