Love joined the team despite Rodgers’ discontent, leading him to push for an exit.

The backup QB has a 2-year deal with the franchise and has a team option of a 5th year, but might be on the chopping block soon.

Despite missing chances to play, Love has spent his time well to hone his skill.

I wish I had done that,’ I get to go back on film, watch it and just be able to learn. You learn more from your mistakes than from your successes.
