Aaron Rodgers won the MVP award in 2020 and 2021, making it back to back MVP performances and the fourth overall in his career. Tom Silverstein who is a Packers beat reporter, says that Aaron Rodgers is not expected to attend the Packers voluntary OTA's. This is something that Packers fans are showing mixed responses over. Rodgers may have won the MVP last season, but he definitely showed some rust to start the season after the threw 2 interceptions in the season opener vs. the #Saints. It's important to note that he did not attend OTAs last season either.
Rodgers is expected to attend the mandatory camp in June, so all should be good as he heads into the 2022 season on a new 3 year, $150M extension. Fans should not be worried on his performance as he does work out on his own and will be back to team facilities in June.
What's going to happen with Jordan Love? The Packers traded up in the first round to draft him, but Aaron Rodgers has won back to back MVPs and signed a new extension. During an interview with Podcaster and YouTuber Tom Grossi, Packers CEO Mark Murphy says that, "We think he can be a good player, but we haven't really seen enough, So I think this preseason will be good for him." You can catch the conversation of his interview here. Credit to Tom Grossi as he has become one of the top NFL and Packers content creators, and his hard work is making its way around the league in the last few days, getting sourced and credited from many big name reporters. Congratulations, Tom! Could we see the Packers trading away Jordan Love? Aaron Rodgers sat for three seasons behind Hall of Famer Brett Favre, but Love, 23, was drafted by the Packers in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, and will be heading into his third season on his rookie contract. If Aaron plays out his new deal, then Jordan could be waiting several more years before starting time. That seems like a waste doesn't it? What will the team do with the former first round pick?
