For yet another offseason, the Green Bay Packers are waiting with bated breath to see if quarterback Aaron Rodgers wants to remain with them.
They have gone through this before, and in the past, Rodgers and the team were able to reach a truce and settle their differences, at least for the moment.
The casualty of Rodgers staying with the Packers has been backup quarterback Jordan Love, who was taken with the 26th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft and has been patiently waiting for his opportunity.
But perhaps he won’t be patient any longer.
Colin Cowherd implied that Love may demand a trade if Rodgers remains with the Packers for another season.
"If Jordan Love is a franchise guy, he's not going to sit for another year."

Despite being one of the more respected figures in pro football for many years, Rodgers has developed a reputation as something of a diva over the past two years.
In addition, he is 39 years of age, and he experienced a drop in his production during the 2022 season, a season that saw Green Bay stumble to an 8-9 record and miss the playoffs.
Still, the New York Jets have reportedly expressed some interest in trading for Rodgers, although it looks like former Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is a higher priority for them.
Some have speculated that one reason Rodgers has wanted out over the past year or two is that the Packers have been planning on having Love succeed him under center.
Love played three years of college football at Utah State University, and he ended his time there with 8,600 passing yards, 60 touchdown passes, and 29 interceptions in 38 games.NEXT: NFL Insider Gives Latest Update On Packers Cap Space
