There's been plenty of speculation about how Aaron Rodgers feels and how he's going to react to the Green Bay Packers trading up for quarterback Jordan Love in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft. But there haven't been a lot of thoughts from people with intimate knowledge of the situation.

Someone who might have some real insight is former Packers wide receiver James Jones, who caught 298 passes from Aaron Rodgers during eight years with the Pack.

This take makes a lot of sense. If anyone would understand the importance of spending a high draft pick on an understudy quarterback, it's Rodgers, who spent three years behind Brett Favre before taking over. A player also isn't going to have reached the heights Rodgers has without having an incredible competitive drive, and that won't leave him stewing about any frustration for long.

Of course it makes sense that Rodgers wishes the Packers spent some of their resources to bring in some weapons around him. They're incredibly thin at wide receiver behind superstar Davante Adams, and Devin Funchess wasn't exactly a big-name addition.

Until Rodgers himself gives us any reason to believe otherwise, it's hard to imagine that any possible frustration is going to spill over into the season. The reigning NFC North champions, the Packers are still well positioned to defend that tile in 2020.
