Per Rob Demovsky AJ Dillon noticed it the first time he saw Jordan Love this off-season.
“He’s got his swagger back,” Dillon said.
Jordan love does not get enough praise for how he has handled his NFL career so far. Two years into his career and many fans and NFL analysts have wrote him off as a “bust.” Some have labeled him as “one of the worst draft picks of recent memory.” However it still seems that everyone inside the Green Bay Packers facility has full faith in the third year quarterback.

Once again Jordan Love is taking valuable QB1 reps in OTAs. Teammates are taking notice of how he looks like this year.
Randall Cobb’s comments on Love:
“I think the confidence is there,” Packers receiver Cobb said of Love. “Just watching him process things a little bit quicker than he had before. I always thought he threw a great ball, but it’s all about doing it with a defense in front of you and putting it in tight windows.
Malik Taylor also had comments on Jordan Love:
“You can just tell in his body language,” Taylor said. “He just looks really relaxed. I noticed it from Day 1 of this offseason program and just speaking to him, it seems like he has a different mindset going into this season.”
Jordan Love is doing what you would expect of a future starter. Performing well when there is no pressure. Does it mean much going into the season? Not at all until we see it in love play. So far Love’s two performances (against the Chiefs and Lions) didn’t exactly build confidence in the front office or fan base.
People need to remember that it took Aaron Rodgers three full years to develop into a true starter. Per Rob Demovsky:
It wasn’t until this point in Year 3 when Rodgers began to show his potential. While Brett Favre skipped the offseason, Rodgers got his work in, and then late in the 2007 season, he got another shot to play in real time. He nearly led the Packers to a comeback win at Dallas, and in the process he convinced the front office and the coaches that he was ready. And when Favre waffled about retirement at the start of 2008, the Packers didn’t hesitate to commit to Rodgers.
This off-season is by far the most important for Jordan Love and his future. We also can’t forget Aaron Rodgers recent comments “the end is near” referring to his career. Jordan Love may need to be ready earlier than expected if Rodgers hangs it up after this season.
