Jordan Love seems to be finding himself.
All eyes are on the second-year QB now that Aaron Rodgers is a camp holdout and still demanding to be traded. Love took the first-team snaps during Tuesday’s minicamp practice and didn’t exactly make the Packers miss Rodgers any less. Love, Green Bay’s first-round selection in last year’s draft, struggled with accuracy, according to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky, connecting on 12 of 23 pass attempts throughout the afternoon.
The team also did a two-minute drill, but Love was unable to guide the offense past the 50-yard line, according to USA Today. He also overthrew his targets on two separate throws, once to tight end Robert Tonyan, and then to uncovered receiver Malik Taylor on a fourth down, which ended the drive.
“He needs every rep he can get right now,” head coach Matt LaFleur said, according to USA Today. “He’s a young quarterback that was not afforded a preseason last year, and so we’ll give him as many as he can handle. We’ll spell him every now and then, but I just think every rep that he takes is so valuable, and you can learn something both from the good and the bad.”
What a difference a day makes, because Jordan Love is reportedly killing it in camp on Wednesday.
