One of the biggest things the Green Bay Packers had to do this offseason after trading Aaron Rodgers is figure out what to do with now current starter Jordan Love. The Packers had until 4 pm ET to pick up or decline Love's fifth-year option; instead, they opted to sign him to a two-year deal to replace it. The deal is worth up to $22.5 million, with $13.5 million guaranteed.
This deal is a good bet for both sides - Green Bay gets a starting QB for cheap, while being able to show some confidence in him, Love gets a little more security and a chance to prove it.
If it works - great. The Packers are willing to push some chips into the center of the table in saying that Love is a valuable starter and he could play out the current deal. If it doesn't work, it's manageable for the team and not that expensive.
I, personally, have not seen enough of Love to make a determination on how he'll be as a starting QB. I know this deal says that the Packers have seen enough to take the chance - but they also didn't really have much of a choice once the Rodgers trade went through. We'll have to wait and see on this one.
