1. Jordan Love
This has nothing to do with Aaron Rodgers’ status. Whether Rodgers returns to the Packers this summer or not, Jordan Love should get more snaps during practice now that Tim Boyle is gone. We should expect good days and bad days for Love, who is only in his second season, but overall it will be an encouraging training camp.
Love may or may not be ready to be a starting quarterback for the Packers, only time will tell, but I think we’ll see some big improvements in his game from his rookie year, as well as some “wow” moments he made regularly at college.
Even if Rodgers returns and Love doesn’t get the starting nod this year, he can take a step to proving the Packers right for drafting him and believing he can be their future starter.
If Rodgers is back, it helps Love as he can learn from the reigning MVP. If Rodgers doesn’t return, it means more first-team reps for Love. The return of preseason games will also be huge for him. Either way, it’s a win-win for Love.
I’m excited to see Love during training camp this summer. He has a chance to show what he can do.
