The Packers are (in smart style) preparing for life without Aaron Rodgers by giving Jordan Love some first-team reps.
Rodgers‘foot injuries have been the talk of the town for weeks now, and rightfully so. While it didn’t necessarily hinder him in games, it did keep Rodgers out of practice.
At this point, the future Hall-of-Fame defender doesn’t need to practice instruction and filmmaking sessions. He can read defences quickly – that’s part of what makes him so great. However, Rodgers’ heir had yet to have that experience.
With Rodgers out, packers is giving to the representative of Love’s first team. This isn’t the first time Green Bay has given Love that experience, despite the fact that they fully expect Rodgers to play.
When did Aaron Rodgers leave the Packers?
Give Green Bay some credit – they’ve supported Rodgers throughout his COVID-19 controversy, and even pursued potential weapons like Odell Beckham Jr. They hope to re-sign Rodgers favorite Davante Adams target.
They heard Rodgers’ complaints loud and clear. Even if that doesn’t help them keep Rodgers for long, it’s not for lack of trying. Green Bay has been a sustained success. If Rodgers still asks, he is taking the opportunity on his behalf.
If Rodgers still wants to leave the Pack, he should do so this season. He’s not young anymore, and he could make the biggest impact since the 2022 season with a new team. He was also able to give the Packers the greatest possible profit as a young player.
Meanwhile, it looks like Love is at least getting some rep and experience as a first-team player. It’s a… win-win.
