Jordan Love Gives Ominous Quote on Packers Future
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers returned to the field for Green Bay Packers minicamp this week, which meant Jordan Love went back to taking reps with the second-team offense. It's a situation he has become used to over the last two seasons as his future with the organization remains up in the air.

Love spoke to reporters about his mindset heading into the summer and was adamant that he is focusing on what is in front of him right now. The 23-year-old is more comfortable in his reads and able to process things a lot faster now. Who knows when he'll get to show that, though.
As for the Utah State standout's future, he could end up spending the entirety of his rookie deal as a backup. All Love can do is take the reps he is given and wait until his name is called. It's hard to tell when that will be considering Rodgers said this past week that his plan is to retire as a Packer.
Love did draw one start last season when Rodgers was unable to suit up due to COVID-19 protocols. He completed 19 of his 34 pass attempts (55.9%) for 190 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 interception. It was an underwhelming performance (4.3 yards per attempt) that ended in a 13-7 loss for Green Bay.
There's no way around it. The longer Rodgers' career goes on, the less likely it becomes that Love will be his successor in Green Bay.
