The reigning NFL Most Valuable Player mentioned general manager Brian Gutekunst during his acceptance speech.
That gesture is monumental given the tension between the two before the 2021 season started.
Back then, Rodgers wanted more involvement in the front office decisions and criticized how the team unceremoniously part ways with high-character veterans.
But it seems like all is well in Green Bay, despite another disappointing finish to their season.
Likewise, re-signing Davante Adams will guarantee Rodgers’ return to the Frozen Tundra.
If that’s the case, the Packers might be looking to ship backup quarterback Jordan Love.
However, Denver Broncos insider Benjamin Allbright was quick to put a potential trade for Love into perspective.
Around the league everyone knows GB doesn't believe in Love.
Dealing him now would net a minimal return. Late day 3 pick.
He's not on the block and also isn't in demand. https://t.co/2f1i1UhS8u

Allbright said: “Around the league, everyone knows GB doesn’t believe in Love. Dealing him now would net a minimal return. Late day 3 pick. He’s not on the block and also isn’t in demand.”
The truth hurts, especially Allbright’s take.
No Love In Green Bay For Jordan
The Packers shocked everyone when they used a first-round draft pick to select former Utah State standout, Love.
At that time, Rodgers was nowhere near being washed up and he kept on winning MVPs.
Drafting Love also ignited a rift between the franchise quarterback and the front office.
Unfortunately, the 23-year-old signal-caller hasn’t done much with the opportunities given to him last season.
Out of his six appearances, the Packers only won twice.
However, he had minimal stints during those wins.
He had a chance to start against the Kansas City Chiefs but finished with 190 yards, a touchdown, and an interception.
Those performances do not spark even the slightest of interest among teams.
Therefore, it seems like Love will be under Rodgers’ shadow until his rookie deal lapses.
