Packers Make Final Call on QB Jordan Love’s Contract.

Jordan Love is the Green Bay Packers’ future franchise quarterback, and he’s about to get rewarded accordingly.

The Packers and Love have yet to agree on a specific figure, but Ian Rapoport, Tom Pelissero, and Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reported on Super Bowl Sunday that the Packers intend to sign Love to a long-term contract in or around June 2024 that represents “fair-market” value for a starting NFL quarterback.

Prior to the 2023 season, the Packers did a Band-Aid deal with Love, signing him to a one-year, $22.5 million extension through 2024 that included a raise in 2023 before Green Bay would have had to pick up Love’s fifth-year option. Because that agreement was completed in May, his contract will most likely not be touched again until this May.

The Packers are likely to be open to discussing a new, fair-market contract for Love that compensates him like a true starter. QB trades frequently occur in June or before the start of training camp, and this timeframe makes sense. Love, who is still only 25 years old, is about to receive his first huge payout.

Spotrac predicts Love’s market value at $44.8 million annually ($179.4 million total) over a new four-year deal.

Jordan Love honors the history of quarterback play in Green Bay as he leads the Packers into the future.

The enormity of what it means to be the next in line to follow Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers — the two MVP and Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks who directly preceded him — is not lost on Love.

During a radio interview on “The Jim Rome Show” during Super Bowl week in Las Vegas, Love discussed what it means to take up that mantle, which it appears he will do for several seasons.

“Man, being the quarterback for the Green Bay Packers is pretty amazing. It’s the legacy of all the great quarterbacks who came before me, including Aaron and Brett,” Love told Bill Huber of Sports Illustrated.

“Green Bay produces Hall of Fame quarterbacks, and it’s an honor to be able to follow these guys,” Love continued. “It definitely holds you to a higher standard, and you want to go out there and compete and be the best out there and be the next great quarterback in Green Bay. But it’s a special place to be. The fans are special in Green Bay. So, I’m loving being a part of that and hoping to carry on the legacy and tradition of great quarterback play.”

Jordan Love ranks among the best quarterbacks in the NFL in his first season as a starter.

Love was brilliant down the stretch of the regular season and into the playoffs, coming up in the most important situations like the great Green Bay quarterbacks who came before him.
