For the first time since the Green Bay Packers shocked the world and selected QB Jordan Love in the first round of the draft, the current starting QB is speaking out on it.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers spoke with media members via conference call Friday afternoon and he spoke on not being thrilled with the selection, but he understood why the franchise had to make the move.
“He didn’t ask to be drafted by the Packers. He’s not to blame at all. I had a good conversation with him the day after the draft and I’m excited to work with him.”
Aaron Rodgers on the Packers’ taking Jordan Love:
“The general reaction at first was surprise, like many people. Not going to say I was thrilled by the pick, necessarily. But I understand the organization is not thinking just about the present, but the future and I respect that.”
Just this past season, Rodgers threw for 4,002 yards, 26 touchdowns, and four interceptions. Above all, he was able to lead Green Bay to the NFC Championship game.
Utah State quarterback Jordan Love threw for 3,402 yards, 20 touchdowns and 17 interceptions last season.
