Aaron Rodgers was never worried, not for a minute.

After many believed the Green Bay Packers got off to a slow start to free agency, they went out and acquired the best free agent tight end on the market. According to ESPN's Rob Demovsky, the Packers signed Martellus Bennett on a three-year, $18.45-million contract, taking the biggest immediate impact player off the board.

In an uncharacteristic move by general manager Ted Thompson the Packers elected to let Jared Cook walk and acquire the recent Super Bowl winner. Cook reportedly turned down a similar offer from the Packers to remain in Green Bay.

For his part, quarterback Aaron Rodgers expressed about his team's move.

The two-time NFL MVP conjured his classic "Relax" reference from the 2014 season, when Rodgers rallied the team to a 12-4 record and an NFC Championship Game appearance after a 1-2 start.

This is the kind of activity the Packers have been sorely lacking.
