The Green Bay Packers have already had an extremely successful 2023 season. Whether or not they get past the San Francisco 49ers in the Divisional round of the playoffs, the Packers seem to have found their franchise quarterback and have a young core of proven offensive weapons around him.
Now news is surfacing that the Packers seem to be making significant progress toward an extension that will solidify the new era in Green Bay.
The Green Bay Packers Are Working Toward A Massive Extension
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that Jordan Love is in line to sign an extension after dismantling Dallas Cowboys in blowout fashion in the NFC wild-card round. He is estimated to be one of the highest paid quarterbacks in the league once it is all said and done:
“Jordan Love appears to be the Packers’ franchise quarterback,” Rapoport said in a video posted on X before Sunday’s game. “He did a Band-Aid extension before this season, at one-year and $22.5 million, that was in May.
“My understanding is that the Packers and his representation will have a serious conversation about the potential of a new deal,” Rapoport said. “Nothing can be done before May, but don’t be surprised if he gets paid again — before next season.”
With 32 touchdowns and just 11 interceptions, Love ranked seventh among NFL passers with 64.2% accuracy for 4,159 yards in his first season as a starter.
A big part of the Packers’ success has been Love’s contract, which was one of the biggest bargains in the NFL, counting just $12.7 million against the cap in 2023. However, that could change soon.
Without a contract rework, Love would make roughly $5.7 million next season. After a strong performance in 2023, however, Love should expect to become one of the higher paid quarterbacks in the NFL.
The Packers may have just done it once again, they may actually have a third franchise quarterback in a row on their hands.
