Everything is love between Packers quarterbacks.
With Aaron Rodgers missing the first two days – and presumably three – of the Packers mandatory mini camp, Jordan Love’s 2020 first round got all the first team shots.
But the relationship between him and Rodgers was more interesting than his play, which has been obscure since it was drafted. On Wednesday, Love shared some thoughts on the relationship between the two passersby, and kept it short and direct.

“Aaron and I obviously have a good relationship,” He said. “I probably spoke to him about a week before I went out here.”
Sure, sitting behind the league’s best player for a year had its benefits, which Love confirmed.
“I mean, he was fantastic. Not many people can say they sat behind the best player in the league. And being behind him, I was able to learn a lot, see a lot of different things and see where he played.”
Love said he was surprised by Camp Rodgers, who did not attend as well as the members of the media present.
In the past, Rodgers had nothing but good things to say about love, although the ruling league’s top player has been vocal about his displeasure with passing on a future with Green Bay’s first-round pick in 2020.
The love comments during camp are some of the first the NFL world has heard since his pick last year. With an NFL red jersey year under his belt, Low was going through his tough first day in camp but impressed on his second, which is to be expected for the young quarterback getting his first legitimate shot at the start.
When Rodgers was drafted to be Brett Favre’s replacement, the relationship between the two was icy. While details of the partnership between Love and Rodgers are still scarce, at least it looks like it’s trending upwards.
