4. Lean on the run game

One way the Packers can help their young quarterback is to lean on their rushing attack. That’s why the decision to restructure Aaron Jones’ contract may prove to be an excellent one.

The Packers have Jones and AJ Dillon returning in 2023, giving them an excellent running back duo.

And they will have an opportunity to add depth on Day 3 of the draft. They could enter the new season with the deepest backfield in the league.

Under Matt LaFleur, the Packers’ offense often reaches its best level of performance when there is a healthy balance between the run and pass games.

Leaning on the run will take pressure off Love and create opportunities in the play-action passing game.

Need an example? Look no further than Love’s touchdown pass to Christian Watson against the Philadelphia Eagles last season.

By leaning on the run, the Packers will be able to establish a rhythm on offense, creating more opportunities for Love when he does throw the ball.

The Packers need to take the pressure off their young quarterback. They can achieve this not only by surrounding him with talent, but also by committing to the run game.

Getting Aaron Jones back is huge for this offense.
