Jordan Love talked about being traded from the Packers
The Green Bay Packers offense is a hot mess in 2022. The unit can’t seem to play a complete game. There are moments quarterback Aaron Rodgers looks like his old self. Then there are plays where Green Bay should put in Jordan Love to see if he’s the Packers future or should request a trade. Love has been with the Packers since the team took him in the first round of the 2020 draft.
Love had started one game since when Rodgers was out with COVID-19 before the Kansas City Cheifs contest last season. He’s been behind Rodgers on the depth chart for three years now. Rodgers is under contract with the Packers until the 2025 season. Love’s fifth-year option would be for the 2024 season. If Rodgers stays with the Packers as a starter, Jordan Love might not get a chance to be the Packers’ starter before he goes to a new team.
ESPN reporter Rob Demovsky spoke with the QB this week. He asked Jordan Love about his Packers future and if he might never play as the starter. Love answered honestly:
“It’s a possibility,” he said.
Demovsky asked Love if he was open to asking for a trade. Love gave a vague response:
“We’ll see,” he said again. “I would obviously be in the fourth year of my contract, and it would be the team’s possibility of picking up my fifth year. It’s really on them to see what kind of moves they want to make, what they want to do with the future.
Jordan Love should get starts if the Packers continue to lose
The Packers are 4-7 heading into their “mini-bye” before they play the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 12. They’re still very much in contention for a playoff spot in a weak NFC Conference. However, if the Packers continue to disappoint, they should evaluate other options at quarterback.
Love should get some starts if the Packers are eliminated from the playoffs. It’s essential to find out what the Packers have in Love. The Packers can dress up Jordan Love and get a high price for him in the trade market. Or, they could find they can use him to manage the good pieces they have on offense and prepare for either Rodgers’ retirement or trade the back-to-back MVP.
