GREEN BAY, Wis. – On the Monday after the 2023 NFL Draft, the Green Bay Packers have a $19.8 million decision to make on Jordan Love.
That’s the fully guaranteed price tag on Love’s fifth-year option. The Packers have to flip the switch on that by May 1 to ensure he’ll remain with the Packers in 2024. If not, he’ll be an unrestricted free agent following the end of next season.

With a 5-8 record at the bye following Sunday’s win at Chicago, the Packers’ playoff hopes are on life support. Assuming they’re eliminated at some point, wouldn’t it make sense to have Aaron Rodgers step aside and elevate Love into the starting lineup to help inform that major financial decision?

“No,” general manager Brian Gutekunst said on Monday. “We’re really pleased with his progression and what he’s been able to do. I think that it would be really good for him, the growth that you need to go through, seeing things for the first time, making those mistakes that you need to make. But I think from our end of it, we’ve seen what we need to see.”

“I’d say that, yes, you’d have some sense of whether a guy has ‘it’ by then or not,” one of them said. “Three years is a good length of time to have a body of work to observe/make a judgement on that. Especially at that position, seeing how he operates daily, how he interacts with guys on and off the field, how locked in he is during practice and also how successful he is against the starters while running the scout team.”

The other part of what Gutekunst said is important. Does Love need to play to prove anything? No. Would it be good for Love to play? Yes.

That final line is what I feel is most important. And encouraging. What says you?

This team already gave up on Aaron Rodgers. They know he can't do it in the playoffs. 

Does he really give us the best chance to win? It's the playoffs already for us. We need to win out, all the way to the SB, otherwise we're done for this year.

AR12 is working on his legacy. He ain't stepping aside for nobody. It doesn't matter if the Packers are still in the hunt for the playoffs or not.

What I would like to see is the Packers have a behind closed door chat with Love and his agent. Let them know they are not giving him the 5th year option but when he becomes a FA, they will bring him back. Offer him $10 mil to sit one more year then give him starter money in year 6 which will be the 2nd year of his new contract. The $10 mil the Packers save by not giving him the 5th year can be added into his second contract.

He already will know the system. He will know the players. The startup time will be shorter with GB than it will be if he leaves and goes to another city.

Gave up on him but signed him to that contract? You’re delusional.

He’s already said he’s open to stepping aside when/if the Packers are mathematically eliminated.

A few things I would like to touch on and the first is the comments from Gute "“No,” general manager Brian Gutekunst said on Monday. “We’re really pleased with his progression and what he’s been able to do. I think that it would be really good for him, the growth that you need to go through, seeing things for the first time, making those mistakes that you need to make. But I think from our end of it, we’ve seen what we need to see.”  I would rather him see those things for the first time and go thru growing pains when the games don't matter, I know I am a little weird but why would you want him to take lumps in games you need?

"He’s already said he’s open to stepping aside when/if the Packers are mathematically eliminated."  How many times have we heard him say one thing and do something different? Do I see him just stepping to the bench? Not a chance as it's all about him and not the team. But it was pretty funny a guy on NFL network said to start Dillon after the bye week because Rodgers doesn't have any games left this year that he must win lol. And that sounded about right, he had to beat Mike McCarthy and thanks to Dak he was able to do that and he needed to beat Chicago and the running game bailed him out. So he will just suck the rest of the year anyway so bench his ass.
 
Just Imagine this for the next 6-9 years. What a ride it will be 🙂

I've said this before, but I think Aaron and Gutey made a deal. Aaron and Jordan have probably had conversations on it themselves. 

Aaron's teaching Jordan the real shit. In exchange, Jordan's gonna be cool about wanting to start right away. Something like that.

Not sure, but it seems like there's some agreements that have been made. Can't prove it,, but just sayin.

wpr (1h) : I hope so. They couldn't have done much worse than the Commodores.
Zero2Cool (3h) : Commanders sale to be done shortly after Super Bowl. I wonder if they go new name?
Zero2Cool (3h) : Folks talk about the devices they'd be without, but ... nothing about wife, kids, family. People more worried about "missing out" than what they should be. People.
Zero2Cool (3h) : lol oh you actually listed electronic devices haha. I see why you thought something. I was just venting in general, but your comment ... yeah, that's the issue.

Zero2Cool (3h) : Packers expected to hire Cardinals corners coach Greg Williams, per league sources.
Zero2Cool (3h) : I wasn't responding to you.

civic (7h) : I enjoy his chats with Mcafee. His world is nothing like my world. He certainly a different kinda cat.
Zero2Cool (8h) : That being said, four days I would lose my shit. I'm good with 48 hours. I've also been in the hole in jail though. They left the light on.
Zero2Cool (8h) : It's kind of sad how some people cannot fathom how solitude benefits you. God forbid we be away from our phones. THE HORROR!!!
go.pack.go. (19h) : And have people drop food into your room through a hole in the door….it’s like putting yourself into solitary confinement
go.pack.go. (19h) : Rodgers is an interesting character. Not breaking news by any means. But who the hell wants to go sit in a completely dark room for 4 straight days/nights with no phone, TV, etc?
Zero2Cool (7-Feb) : Rodgers said his "not going to san fran" was indeed a joke between buddies. LIKE I TOLD YOU.
Zero2Cool (7-Feb) : Rodgers said "I am not a free agent, I'm under contract with Packers"
Mucky Tundra (7-Feb) : @FieldYates Andy Reid asked about playing in Mexico City: “The fans in Mexico were excellent. I loved every minute of it. And the food was good too. I loved the Chile Relleno.”

Zero2Cool (6-Feb) : It really seems Rodgers is loving the attention.
Mucky Tundra (6-Feb) : But how do we know he's not trolling when he says he's trolling with his tweets?! :P
Zero2Cool (6-Feb) : You never listen to me though
Zero2Cool (6-Feb) : Davante to reporters after the game: "I am first-team all troll so don't take none of (the tweets) too serious, but that would be a dream scenario."
Zero2Cool (2-Feb) : If you were two hours ahead of me, that means you're 4 weeks behind! Buwahahahaha

buckeyepackfan (2-Feb) : buckeyepackfan (14h) : Brady officially retires "FOR GOOD"! Aaron will definately play 1 more year. But where?
go.pack.go. (2-Feb) : I’m kinda excited to see what MM can do calling plays without Rodgers
Zero2Cool (1-Feb) : Jerry Jones said Mike McCarthy will call the plays and a version of the offenses he ran in Green Bay will be coming to Dallas.
Zero2Cool (1-Feb) : We agree. 😁

dhazer (1-Feb) : Well Rodgers wont retire now as Brady just announced his retirement. As i stated Rodgers ego wont allow him to be an opening act at the HOF ceremony
Zero2Cool (1-Feb) : But yes, the location is likely because he has numerous friends in the area for Suspended Sunrise Recordings.
Zero2Cool (1-Feb) : Rodgers does not have a house in/around Nashville. He allegedly bought land.
beast (1-Feb) : Also, Rodgers already has a house around Nashville (I believe for his Music Record Business)
beast (1-Feb) : With AFC Contender will offer the most for Rodgers? Jets is the logical answer, BUT Dolphins seem to be going all in, and Titans have been interested in Rodgers and really.use an upgrade
Zero2Cool (1-Feb) : Tom Brady retires. Rodgers playing in2023. prediction
go.pack.go. (1-Feb) : Well Leonhard was offered the DC job before Barry was hired. So it’s not unrealistic
buckeyepackfan (1-Feb) : Brady officially retires "FOR GOOD"! Aaron will definately play 1 more year. But where?
beast (1-Feb) : He's only coached one place... you usually don't go straight to a coordinator job unless an owner loves you (Jeff Saturday to head coach style)
Mucky Tundra (1-Feb) : Saints get a 2023 1st rounder and a 2024 2nd rounder and give up Payton and a 2024 3rd rounder
