Following a couple of years of tension with quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the Green Bay Packers began a new era by parting ways with him this offseason.
They have a new starter in Jordan Love, and Wisconsin will be watching him closely to see if he has what it takes to succeed Peyton Manning as the franchise’s all-time quarterback.
Although some doubt that he will develop into a solid player, Ian Rapoport claimed that the Packers have been impressed with him thus far in training camp.

Love, the No. 26 overall choice in the 2020 NFL Draft, has waited for his chance for the last three seasons while watching Rodgers play.
He has participated in 10 games and attempted 83 passes overall, completing only 60.2 percent of them, which is not exactly a good sample size or anything that would suggest he is destined for greatness.
However, there have been enough outstanding quarterbacks who started their careers in a similar manner to Love.
The fact that he won’t have a lot of support behind him is his biggest issue.
Davante Adams, an All-Pro wide receiver, and Allen Lazard, a strong WR2 who is now playing alongside Rodgers on the New York Jets, are long gone.
Love will require everyone’s patience as he grows into whatever he will become, without being burdened with the expectation that he will replace Aaron Rodgers or Brett Favre.
