There is something new Green Bay Packers starting quarterback Jordan Love is going to need if he is going to be successful this season: Chemistry with his teammates.

That is why it is very encouraging to see Love joined by several players at the skill positions in California this weekend. Love was joined by Aaron Jones, Christian Watson, Jayden Reed, Dontayvion Wicks, Jeff Cotton, and Danny Etling, according to photographs posted to Twitter by The Athletic's Matt Schneidman.

Even though this is not the full compliment of Green Bay's skill positon players, the fact a sizeable amount of them still made their way to California to join the new quarterback should indicate good things moving forward. This is exactly the type of external team-building that Green Bay needs at this time.

The young players on this team recognizing that they cannot just roll into training camp with this as-is and expect everything to be good to go shows an incredible level of awareness. In previous years this type of approach could have been considered acceptable, but they also had a future Hall of Fame quarterback in Aaron Rodgers commandeering the offense.

Being aware of the uphill battle and the large amount of work that stands in front of them for this upcoming season (and others down the line) points towards a commitment to themselves and the team as a whole. This group could have called it good and followed the upcoming team organized regimen, but they knew that would not be good enough.

If the Packers are going to achieve any level of success this season it all starts with building chemistry between the quarterback and the players at the skill positions. It is obvious when a team is not on the same page in these areas and it is quite clear that they do not want to go down that path.

Taking time out of their own personal lives is a level of dedication that many teams strive for, but few actually achieve. This group led by Love is looking to join those that can actually meet that mark and not be one just putting on a show with little to no substance only to be consumed by the public.
