LaFleur said today that it’s obvious from watching Love at Organized Team Activities that he’s been working hard at getting better. The Packers traded up in the first round to draft Love last year, but Love never saw the field while Rodgers was winning the league MVP award. This year, if Rodgers doesn’t play, Love would presumably be the Packers’ starter.
The ball is “jumping out” of Love’s hand when he throws in practice this week, LaFleur said.
The Packers are in a difficult spot with Rodgers unhappy and wanting out, but Love giving LaFleur confidence that he can handle the starting job if necessary would put the Packers in a much better place.
