Packers GM Makes Bold Statement On Jordan Love’s Future

The Green Bay Packers appear to be in good hands with quarterback Jordan Love, and general manager Brian Gutekunst is looking forward to a bright future with him.

During a recent appearance on SiriusXM NFL Radio, Gutekunst raved about his young signal-caller.

“Obviously, there’s going to be new challenges coming forward this year and beyond, but the way he’s represented this organization and this team as a leader, we couldn’t be happier about,” Gutekunst said. “Certainly he played at a very, very high level at the second half of last year and I think sky’s the limit for him.”

Love, who played his collegiate football at Utah State, was selected by the Packers with the 26th overall pick of the 2020 NFL Draft.

He spent his first three seasons backing up Aaron Rodgers, but a door was opened for Love to start when Green Bay traded Rodgers to the New York Jets last year.

Love struggled in the early going of 2023, but he broke out in the second half, throwing 18 touchdowns and just one pick over the Packers’ last eight games. Green Bay went 6-2 in those contests and ended up making the playoffs.

Then, Love threw three more touchdowns without a pick in a Wild Card Round win over the Dallas Cowboys, bringing his total to 21 touchdowns and one interception over nine games. The Packers proceeded to bow out to the San Francisco 49ers in the Divisional Round, but they actually took a lead into the fourth quarter of that matchup.

On the 2023 campaign overall, Love threw for 4,159 yards, 32 touchdowns and 11 picks while completing 64.2 percent of his passes and posting a passer rating of 96.1.

While the jury is still out on whether or not Jordan Love can play at a high level over the course of a full season, it’s looking like the Packers have found their franchise quarterback yet again.
