The Green Bay Packers were 13-3 last season and came to a Super Bowl victory with an appearance in the NFC championship game.

A wide receiver # 2 behind Davante Adams is one of the pieces they could have tried to add in the first round of the NFL draft last Thursday, but they instead traded and took a quarterback from the future in Jordan Love from Utah State.

Those around the current quarterback think he is not happy.

Rob Demovsky ESPN quoted a source as saying that Aaron Rodgers would be “angry” with the choice, while others thought he would be “irritated”. Not only did the Packers transmit a wide receiver in the first round, but they also did not pick one from the overall draft.

Demovsky noted that Rodgers was “in love with” Justin Jefferson of LSU, which probably makes the fact that he went to rival Minnesota Vikings with the No. 22 pick even more difficult to accept for the eight-time Pro Bowler.

Although Rodgers had not publicly discussed the Packers’ plan, his predecessor, Brett Favre, apparently spoke to him and offered a clue to his general state of mind.

Favre appeared on SiriusXM NFL Radio (h / t Mike Florio from Pro Football Talk) and said Green Bay sent Rodgers a “disrespectful” message and added that number 12 is “a little disappointed”.

“Aaron, have you ever looked around and said,” Do I feel like a weirdo? “”, Continued Favre. “And he said,” Yeah. “”

There is a certain level of irony in Favre being the one who relayed such a message given that he was retained as quarterback from Green Bay when the team drafted Rodgers with the choice n ° 24 in 2005 Favre remained the Packers’ quarterback for three more years, but ultimately played for the New York Jets and Minnesota Vikings before retiring.

However, love is not exactly Rodgers.

Rodgers led California to a 10-2 record in their last college season and threw a total of 13 interceptions in two years for the Golden Bears, while Love led Utah State to a 7-6 record behind 17 interceptions in 2019 only.

There is potential there, but the Packers were on the brink of the Super Bowl last season and has had the opportunity to come much closer to a Lombardi Trophy with notable draft choices.

The selection of a backup quarterback is unlikely to be of much use in 2020, and Rodgers may not be satisfied with it.
