The big topic of discussion in Green Bay is still the future of Aaron Rodgers. While he is reportedly set on leaving the franchise after falling out with them, the Packers are adamant that they don’t want to let him go and want to try and fix the relationship. The primary cause for this strained relationship is the Packers drafting Jordan Love as his replacement last year. But how is Jordan Love reacting to all this speculation?

Love didn’t get this opportunity last season because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The team is behind Love, and think that he is a strong talent.

“In practice, OTAs, he’s doing well. It’s a good time for him to be in control of the huddle, be there at practice, and get those reps that he didn’t get last year.

“It’s kind of letting him run the show and see where he’s at and throw at the guys and he’s doing well. Jordan is a good kid, he’s a lot out in front of him.”

Aaron Rodgers still not agreeing to return

Rodgers and the Packers are still yet to reach any kind of agreement over his return. The former has abstained from the OTAs and is on vacation at the moment. So far, the Packers have been rebuffed at every point when trying to negotiate with Rodgers.

He is quite unhappy with the franchise for not extending him the support that he has asked for. Despite this, Rodgers has maintained that he doesn’t have any problem with Jordan Love.
