With Aaron Rodgers returning to the Green Bay Packers for at least one more season, Jordan Love’s situation with the franchise became more complicated. Rodgers is the undisputed starter despite Love being a first-round pick in 2020, and will have to sit on the bench for at least another year.
From the day he was declared eligible for the 2020 NFL Draft, it was clear that Love needed a year to get used to the speed of the pro level. But after Rodgers’ MVP year and his return to the team yesterday, plus the fact that he now controls his own destiny, Love’s future in Green Bay is uncertain at this point.
When will Jordan Love see the Packers field?
One thing that will help Love develop this season is the return of the preseason, which was canceled in 2020. Starters rarely see the field during August, and given Rodgers’s caliber, the second-year quarterback will see a lot of time. in the countryside. In the next weeks.
But it is very difficult to predict when Love will play in a major game. Your best chance, of course, is trash time or a week 17 game when Green Bay rests its starters for the playoffs. However, with Rodgers on the roster, there is no way the boy is QB1.
At the end of the day, it can all be part of the Packers’ plan. After all, Rodgers sat on the bench for three years before replacing Brett Favre, before becoming one of the best quarterbacks in history. Perhaps Green Bay hopes to do the same with Love: keep him as QB2 while Rodgers is still on the roster, and then let Love prove himself.
