Quarterback Aaron Rodgers and his rocky relationship with the Green Bay Packers organization has been dominating NFL headlines this offseason. That means that eyes are now set on how young QB Jordan Love looks during team OTAs and there seems to be mixed reactions so far.
It is possible Rodgers will not be back with the team for the 2021 season, which means Love would then take over the starting gig. Although the team's first-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft has yet to see a single NFL snap, Love is widely projected to be the Packers' quarterback of the future.
Love now has a full arsenal of pass-catchers available to throw to at OTAs, but is still favoring the check-down passes and dump-off plays. This could be due to a number of reasons, including how conservative the Green Bay offense would have to become without Rodgers leading the way.
No matter the case, this isn't exactly the good news Packers fans were hoping to hear about Love. His talent is obvious as he threw for 8,600 yards and 60 touchdowns during his three seasons (38 games played) at Utah State. However, he has yet to show major strides of development at the NFL level.
There is a whole summer of team activities and training camp ahead and Love has a lot to prove during that time. It'll be interesting to see if he can build any kind of connection with the Packers' top receiving options including Davante Adams, Robert Tonyan and Allen Lazard.
Green Bay currently has the 7th-best odds to win the Super Bowl set at +1700, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
