The Green Bay Packers traded up in the 2021 NFL Draft to select QB Jordan Love in the first round. In two seasons, he has one start and eight spot appearances.
It sounds like Love is about done waiting for his opportunity, which may or may not come in Green Bay as Aaron Rodgers is locked in for the next couple of seasons with the Packers. Love has reportedly told confidants that he’ll request a trade if Rodgers is brought back for 2023.
Love hasn’t proven himself to be an NFL starter-worthy QB, but then again, he hasn’t had the chance. He was a first-round pick for a reason.
Ahead of next season, Bookies.com oddsmaker Adam Thompson has revealed his 2023 team NFL futures odds for the Packers’ current QB2.
Jordan Love 2023 Team Odds
This hypothetical betting market is for entertainment purposes only and does not reflect any market that may be available on betting sites and betting apps.
Rodgers is one of the top quarterbacks of all-time and the reigning two-time NFL MVP. He’s also in the midst of his worst season as a starter and the Packers are closing out one of their worst seasons in 30 years. His QBR of 41.0 ranks just above Russell Wilson, Davis Mills and Mac Jones, and just below Zach Wilson.
The MVP nearly walked out of Titletown last offseason before striking a three-year, $150 million extension that keeps him in Green Bay through the 2026 NFL betting season, with a potential out after 2023.
Love, meanwhile, is still on a rookie deal that pays him under $4 million this season and next, plus a fifth-year option for 2024. If the Packers don’t want to move him, they won’t have to. It’s understandable that he would want his opportunity, and it’s also understandable that other teams would relish the idea of bringing him in.
At 6-foot-4, 225 pounds and with a 4.5-second time in the 40, teams will offer Love a shot if they can get him. There are expected to be several NFL teams desperately in need of that next QB to lead the way.
The New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts were two of more-engaged teams with Love prior to the draft. The Saints have Andy Dalton and Jameis Winston but neither are considered long-term options. The Colts have Matt Ryan, who is showing his age in Indy. Each was aggressive in the trade and free agency markets for a QB, and neither will be afraid to make a move this upcoming offseason.

The New York Giants were aggressive in rebuilding, and didn’t exercise their option to bring QB Daniel Jones back after this season. The Carolina Panthers, as everyone is painfully aware, have made two big moves to find their QB of the future. Neither has worked.
Geno Smith has had a career resurgence for the Seattle Seahawks, though the magic may have run out and so, too, does his contract. The Houston Texans are just beginning a full rebuild, and Mills may not be Houston’s first choice to be the anchor on the boat.
The Field presents a lot of options, including a Commanders team that may lose Taylor Heinicke to free agency and may have already seen enough of Carson Wentz; and a Lions squad that reportedly loved Love out of the gate. If the team could move Goff and his $31 million owed the next two years, they might take that leap. The Buccaneers may be seeking an heir to Tom Brady, if he doesn’t stick around after one of his more disappointing seasons.
