Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Aaron Rodgers will be the guy until he’s ready to stop playing

Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling wasn’t as surprised as some other people to see the team draft a quarterback in the first round this year, but he doesn’t see Jordan Love‘s arrival changing much about the way they do business in Green Bay.

Valdes-Scantling said he doesn’t think Love will draw something extra out of Rodgers because Rodgers “doesn’t need another guy motivating him.” He also doesn’t see the rookie quarterback changing much about how long Rodgers is going to be a member of the Packers.

“Our quarterback that we have right now is great — the best quarterback to ever throw a football,” Valdes-Scantling said to Zach Gelb of CBS Sports Radio. “It’s kind of the same thing when he came in learning under a great quarterback like Brett Favre. Aaron is going to plan on being our quarterback for years to come, until he’s ready to stop playing. That’s not a doubt. There’s no competition battle or anything like that; 12 is the guy, and he’s going to be the guy until he’s ready to stop playing football, so we can nip that in the bud now.”

There have been a variety of responses to Love’s selection over the last couple of weeks and the conjecture about what it means for Rodgers is unlikely to end anytime soon. Whatever happens on the field will likely have a fair amount to do with the answer to that question, which should make the Packers Offense a closely watched unit once there’s football to watch again.

  1. Yeah I’m sure that’s why the packers traded up to draft a quarterback in round 1: to not play him.

    It’s getting real desperate in entitlement town!

    That is opposite of what Rodgers LT and Packer fan say

  3. If what Marquez says is true, then the Packer front office apparently didn’t get the memo, unless of course it’s just common for teams to trade up in round one for a QB who will be your backup QB for the next five years.

  4. IF what he is saying is true, why wouldn’t Rodgers come out and say it? Instead he’s being his usual passive aggressive self and using Favre and others to make his feelings known.

  5. I see a lot of fans and back-of-the-roster players saying Rodgers will be with the Packers for years to come, but the actions of the GM and head coach seem to indicate otherwise.

  6. I think Marquez MIGHT be (and SHOULD be) correct.
    However, I would suggest that the SAME thing could probably have been said about Favre too… and look where that ended up.

    The “We’re getting your replacement ready to go” signal did not sit well with Favre, and it was all downhill with the Packers in terms of their relationship with him after that.

  7. Aaron Rodgers wouldnt even be the starting qb at his family reunion flag football game…. guess thats what happens when you throw friends, family and team mates under the bus….

    Finally! The Pack will have a back up who can throw the football.
    ________

    He can throw it, but it appears that he has trouble throwing it to the right team.

  9. Nike has already signed JLove to an endorsement deal.

    More proof that Aaron’s time in GB is coming to an end soon.

    Who gives an endorsement deal to a backup QB that has never taken an NFL snap? Nike must have inside information…

  10. MVS just spoke for Packer Fan. Thank you, MVS.
