Green Bay Packers have their eyes firmly set on winning the Super Bowl during the upcoming season.

The Packers have arguably the most complete quarterback in their ranks, with reigning NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers looking to guide Green Bay to their fifth Super Bowl win and 14th league championship.

Rodgers will go down as arguably the greatest quarterback in NFL history when he retires several years down the line, but to become classed as the best ever he will have to win the Lombardi Trophy a few more times.

Massive progress

The superstar quarterback aims to pick up his second SB title next February in the Golden State of California and at the home of the San Francisco 49ers, Levi Stadium.

But to win the Super Bowl the Packers will need to improve even further on the offensive side of the ball. In January's NFC Championship Game, the Packers and Rodgers were subdued by the Seattle Seahawks, but Rodgers feels the progress of wide receiver Davante Adams will make Green Bay even stronger in 2015.

"In my mind, he has humongous upside -- and he's starting to reach that upside," Rodgers told ESPN. "I think the opportunities are going to come for him. He's got two great guys to play with. His attention to detail is very impressive and his approach."

Athletic beast

Adams' sophomore season will likely be even more impressive than his rookie season. The former Fresno State star was solid during his rookie season, with 38 receptions for 446 receiving yards and three touchdowns. But in 2015, Rodgers thinks Adams' athletic ability will shine through.

"Obviously, the athleticism -- as you see on Instagram with his 360, between-the-legs dunk -- is incredible. He brings a different set of skills to the field that we haven't seen around here with his body type, his athleticism and his approach," Rodgers added.

"If you look at the guys who've struck around here and gotten second and third contracts, it's guys who really understand how to make this work for them -- the game within the game: The note-taking, the preparation, the study habits, the focus, the practice habits."

Ready for a breakout

These comments from Rodgers are definitely promising for Packers fans. If Green Bay can have a legitimate third star receiver, there will be literally no stopping this offense.

For Adams, the one person you want to be impressing at this stage of your career is Aaron Rodgers, and there is no doubt that the star quarterback will be looking to find his young receiver even more during the upcoming campaign.
