The Washington Football Team need to find a future at the quarterback position. So far this season, Ryan Fitzpatrick has gone down with an injury and Taylor Heinicke has shown that he is not the long-term guy. Could the franchise take a look at trading for Green Bay Packers’ second-year quarterback Jordan Love ahead of the NFL trade deadline?
Love was part of the offseason drama surrounding Rodgers and whether or not he would return to the Packers. If Green Bay is sold on Rodgers being their long-term quarterback, moving Love would make perfect sense.
Sporting News mentioned Love as a potential trade target for the Washington Football Team. Their reasoning makes a ton of sense.
Washington will get a closer look at Love on the Packers’ sideline in Week 7 at Lambeau Field. It may not be well positioned for a first-round QB of choice in 2022. Let’s let WFT solve its post Taylor Heinicke-Ryan Fitzpsatrick QB problem while ensuring Green Bay locks into Rodgers for a lot longer as it should.
Finally, after a strange season due to COVID-19 last year, Love got to see the field in the preseason. Even though he dealt with a shoulder injury, he looked solid. Love also got some regular season playing time in Week 1 during the Packers’ beatdown at the hands of the New Orleans Saints.
In that short regular season stint, Love completed five of his seven pass attempts for 68 yards. It was a very short period of time to see what Love is capable of, but it was enough to show off his arm along with preseason action. Should the Washington Football Team want to make a move, targeting Love would make a lot of sense.
Would the Packers even have interest in trading Love? That would be the main question. However, Rodgers is proving that he still has a lot of football left in him and Green Bay could get some value for Love.
Expect to hear plenty of rumors surrounding the Washington Football Team ahead of the NFL trade deadline. They are not a Super Bowl contender this season, but making a few moves ahead of the deadline could be an option to boost their chances of being a playoff contender.
