The Green Bay Packers are headed into a somewhat unknown 2023 season. The franchise-altering Aaron Rodgers trade has captivated headlines all off-season. However, many fans are focusing now on the road ahead. That road, for now, is led by third-year quarterback Jordan Love. After sitting behind Aaron Rodgers for two full seasons, Love finally gets his chance to lead the most historic franchise in the NFL. Now, we are hearing reports that the Packers could add a Super Bowl Champion to their roster for the upcoming season.
The Green Bay Packers Are Expected To Target QB Nick Foles To Back Up Jordan Love
Per Jordan Dajani:
With Aaron Rodgers gone, the Packers’ quarterback room has a combined one NFL start. Jordan Love is the man going forward, and being excited about his potential is worth it. He flashed for a moment against the Eagles last year, when he led two scoring drives in the fourth quarter while completing 6 of 9 passes for 113 yards and one touchdown.
Behind Love currently is Sean Clifford, a surprise fifth-round pick many believed the Packers reached on, and Danny Etling. Adding a veteran voice to this room would make Love more comfortable and maybe head coach Matt LaFleur too.
Nick Foles has one of the most unique journeys in NFL history. With both a Super Bowl resume and as an NFL journeyman experience that spans six teams. The veteran quarterback is an invaluable asset as a mentor. In Foles, the Packers and Love would be getting someone with a ton of scheme versatility and league knowledge as well as a guy who could teach from experience in any pressure situation the league has to offer.
Before this year Foles’ reputation might have made him too much of a gamble for a team with a first-year starter. It’s not his fault. The man who toppled Tom Brady on the NFL’s biggest stage comes with a lot of heat. In his first few years post Super Bowl, the idea that he could still come in and produce magic was ever-present. You could feel it rumble through the fan bases in Jacksonville and Chicago any time the QB on the field struggled. That vibe faded in Indianapolis.
Foles struggled in just two starts for the Colts last year, throwing four picks and not a single touchdown. He is now firmly in the “help a younger” guy part of his career. There is no world where Foles overshadows what the team is trying to build with Love. Foles himself joked about how irrelevant he’s become from a public perception standpoint in a recent interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer.
