If there’s one thing I can’t stand, it’s people who overreact to the slightest comment. For example, just last week, when Aaron Rodgers signed a new $93K contract with the Green Bay Packers, it was portrayed as a move that will help the team win more games.
Aaron Rodgers’ $93K Statement Would Be Very Beneficial to Jordan Love – The world is starting to realize that the NFL is a money-hungry, out of touch league. Michael Silver of NFL Network just released a series of comments from NFL owners, commissioner Roger Goodell and others, that were all over the place. However, the most interesting part was when Giants co-owner John Mara talked about the New York Giants signing free agent Eric Rowe.
Tuesday marks the start of mandatory minicamp for the Green Bay Packers. Will Aaron Rodgers show up or will he continue to refuse to play for the team? This is where things get interesting and the Packers’ drama gets heated. If Rodgers stays away, Jordan Love will get the valuable commitment he so desperately needs.
Will Aaron Rodgers report to Green Bay Packers camp?

Adam Schefter reported on NFL Draft Day 2021 that the quarterback had told some members of the organization that he no longer wanted to play for the team. Rogers did not show up at the volunteer OTAs last month, after attending them for the past 16 years. Rodgers’ problem seems to stem from the 2020 NFL Draft, when the team made a trade for a promotion and selected Jordan Love in the first round. He had not been informed of the move and was not very happy. He showed no signs of ill will toward Lave and accompanied him throughout the camp. Rodgers then came onto the field and won his third MVP. Rodgers has three years left on his contract, but no guaranteed money. Although he has not said so publicly, the uncertainty seems to weigh heavily on him. The team wants him back, but it’s still unclear if he’ll be there Tuesday. I have nothing to say about that situation, and you all know how we feel about it, Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said, according to ESPN. We’ll see on Tuesday.
If Aaron Rodgers doesn’t show up, Jordan Love does
. If Rodgers is serious about never playing for the Packers again, he won’t be coming to mandatory camp. If that happens, the team could fine him $93,000 for missing the three-day deadline. According to ESPN, he has already missed so much time in the offseason that he has waived his $500,000 training bonus. If Rodgers makes a statement and doesn’t show up next week, it’s only to Love’s benefit. Love’s first year in the league was marred by COVID-19 restrictions, and he never got the valuable reps he needed. Assuming the top five receivers show up as in the OTAs, there could be some much needed interaction here. A year ago, Love had not seen the field. Love was the main player on OTAs. After Rodgers’ departure, the Packers signed veteran Blake Bortles and little-known Kurt Benkert. If Rodgers doesn’t show up, it’s only to Love’s advantage.
Love shows signs of improvement
. Last year, Love had nothing to compete with. He wasn’t even a backup quarterback. This was to be a learning year for him, and he learned from the best, as Rodgers was named league MVP. Maybe it’s his turn now. If Rodgers decides to break up with the team, Love will likely open the season as the No. 1 quarterback. He’s making progress. One of the biggest things for Jordan right now is his confidence in the system, Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett said at his press conference, as reported by Pro Football Talk. It’s very important that he comes out of college and can spend an entire season learning that as a freshman, so he can go out and do his assignments. Instead of trying to learn a few words and figure out how to call the games, he can now do it much more easily and then go lead them. And I think that’s what we need to see. So now we can talk about technique, reading and all the subtleties we want to teach him. Love has not been made available to the media. He plans to speak to reporters at the camp next week. COMPARED TO: Jordan Love doesn’t talk during Packers drama, but his coach does I think they’re going to make do with Aaron.
