The ongoing saga between the Green Bay Packers and Aaron Rodgers doesn’t seem to be budging. So understandably, Jordan Love took over all the first-team reps in OTA’s and mandatory minicamp. Davante Adams spoke about his new QB1.
Adams caught 115 passes for 1,374 yards and 18 touchdowns last season in the final year of a four-year, $58 million deal. The Adams-Rodgers became arguably the best QB-WR duo in 2020 and led the Packers to another NFC Championship game.

Adams is still in Green Bay, and the Packers still have a solid offensive system. But Jordan Love is yet to play a single snap in the NFL, so it’s still in doubt whether his skill set will transition in the Pros.
Davante Adams compared his chemistry with Aaron Rodgers and Jordan Love
Adams has been impressed with Love early on. “I like what I see from him so far. He’s shown that he’s locked in and ready to assume whatever role that he has to and go out there and play, so I’m looking forward to seeing him.”
“I don’t have any experience with him. The more that we do work — obviously I didn’t do team reps, so I wouldn’t say that our chemistry is great, but it’s just because we haven’t had a whole lot of time together, but whatever happens will happen, and if he ends up kind of running the deal, then we’ll continue to build and start on that journey in training camp, but as of now, we haven’t had much time together, so I can’t say that it’s where Aaron and I’s chemistry is. That took years and years and years to build to get to where we are right now.”

No one knows where Rodgers will be dropping dimes in 2021, but the likeliness of that happening in Green Bay seems minuscule. The initial report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter hasn’t changed: Aaron Rodgers wants out of Green Bay. As much as the Packers’ front office would like to change his mind, it’s a slim chance they get the job done.
It’s still speculation where Rodgers will end up in 2021. The 38-year-old may be in the final stages of his career but he proved that the Aaron Rodgers of old is still here. However, Jordan Love had a decent minicamp and will walk into training camp with confidence. It should be interesting to see how Jordan Love will progress before the start of training camp.
