Aaron Rodgers is returning to the Green Bay Packers which means a Jordan Love trade could follow. Who should get on the phone and offer?
The Packers have been in limbo waiting to find out what Aaron Rodgers is going to do with his NFL future. Now they know he’s coming back.
Rodgers’ decision to return means a lot of things but it especially impacts Jordan Love, who is basically another Jimmy Garappolo. He was drafted to be the heir apparent but the guy on the throne isn’t keen on giving it up.
Green Bay has every reason to trade Love now. The upcoming NFL Draft class at quarterback is weak. The free agents available at quarterback are largely uninspiring. And Love would be a bargain in terms of salary.
Which teams need to get involved?
Teams who should make the call to trade for Jordan Love
The Washington Commanders have reportedly reached out to every team in the NFL to inquire about the availability and value of their quarterback. They’ve cast an extraordinarily wide net in their attempt to figure out their future at the position.
Love has presumably been part of those discussions. The team took a look at the quarterback while he was a draft prospect so they’ll have a good idea of how he compares to the current crop of draft options. It’s possible he’s better than any of the quarterbacks they’ll have the chance to draft.
Washington is in a position to take a chance on someone like Love. If he proves worthy of being a first-round selection, then they’ll have hit the jackpot. If he doesn’t, then they won’t have spent very much to find out.
