The Green Bay Packers could have a quarterback controversy on their hands in 2023, with their former first-round pick considering a trade request this offseason, further complicating the team’s long-term plans at the position.
Appearing on Homer & Tony, a radio show for ESPN Milwaukee, Packers reporter Jason Wilde talked about his first at-length conversation with backup quarterback Jordan Love.
In the conversation, with audio provided by The Poor Man’s Packer Podcast, Wilde mentioned that the current backup could consider a trade in 2023 if Rodgers is still in Green Bay next season.
“I had a really great conversation with Jordan [Love] on Friday afternoon,” Wilde said. “I think he very clearly, even though he wouldn’t flat-out say it, he does not want to sit for another year. So, if we get to year four, and Rodgers does come back, I am fairly confident that he will seek a trade.”
Although it hasn’t been confirmed by Love, Wilde got the very strong impression that the 24-year-old quarterback has no plans on being a backup for the fourth straight season in 2023.
