The Green Bay Packers appear to have committed to Jordan Love for the next two seasons, as sources say the two sides agreed to a one year contract extension, avoiding the fifth year option on Love’s contract.
Love and the Packers agreed to the one year deal worth 22.5 million dollars, with 13.5 million fully guaranteed. The deal was strong for both sides, as Love gets the money close to his fifth year option, and Green Bay gets some protection as they have to guarantee nearly seven million dollars less than what the option was calling for.
Love will be the Packers starting quarterback in 2023, and the contract runs through the 2024 season, almost confirming the Packers will give the former Utah State quarterback time to prove himself. He impressed in relief of an injured Aaron Rodgers in the Week 12 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, throwing for 113 yards and a touchdown.
The Packers will start their OTAs on May 22nd.
