Quarterbacks (3)

Aaron Rodgers, Jordan Love, Tim Boyle

Eyes will be on the quarterbacks again this camp, but not for the usual “how will Aaron Rodgers get along with his coach” reason. The Packers spent their first-round pick on a quarterback when they had a desperate need for a receiver in a receiver-rich draft.

Jordan Love will be coming to Green Bay as the heir-apparent and will look to continue the Packers’ elite quarterback tradition that has spanned the last 28 years. I think a lot of people will be excited to see what Love can do in the limited preseason games (if there are preseason games).

I went back and forth with whether or not to keep two or three quarterbacks. If we weren’t entering the 2020 season in the middle of a pandemic, I would keep two and give Rodgers another possible weapon on offense. But should Rodgers or Love test positive for COVID-19 and need to be quarantined for two weeks, you’d need a third on the roster to provide depth.

I also think keeping Tim Boyle another year to work with Love would only help the rookie. Being able to watch Rodgers in itself is a great experience, but having a guy like Boyle who has been with Rodgers for the past couple of years can only help, especially if Love isn’t ready to play if Rodgers wasn’t able to.
