Rodgers becomes a tutor for QB Harrell


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Packers backup quarterback Graham Harrell says Aaron Rodgers has been his biggest supporter this offseason.

   Harrell is preparing to be the No. 2 quarterback after Matt Flynn's departure in free agency.

   Back in 2005, the Packers picked Rodgers in the first round of the draft to be their heir apparent to Brett Favre. The veteran later told ESPN he "wasn't being paid to coach" Rodgers and that it was "not in (my) contract to teach" his successor the ropes.

   Harrell says it's been nothing like that for him this offseason.
