Love, who’s entering his second season with the Packers, said Wednesday he will be well prepared to take over the starting job when the Rodgers situation continues on the road it is on.
“A hundred per cent,” he told reporters following the next day of minicamp, through ESPN. “Obviouslythis is a period where I am getting plenty of extremely valuable repetitions I may not have been obtaining in an ordinary circumstance. So I am only going to take it daily. … But yeah, that is what I am here for. I had been drafted here in order to play quarterback, so I will definitely be prepared Week 1”
Love rebounded from a rough beginning on day one, at which he fought to finish the majority of his moves before demonstrating why the Packers traded up to draft him in the first round of this 2020 draft.
“I certainly believe it was a fantastic evening for me and for everyone else, also, just bouncing back from yesterday’s clinic,” Love explained, through Sports Illustrated. “On offense, you understand, it was not our very best clinic, all around and for me personally, too. Becoming able for all of us to come out here and rebound back now it meant a great deal for everyone and just revealed how much we are able to bounce back.”
Rodgers formally became a holdout Tuesday after not looking for the very first day of mandatory minicamp. News of his absence was not a shock for many after the reigning NFL MVP jumped on voluntary OTAs, basically forfeiting his $500,000 work bonus.
Love told me he had been”just as amazed as you guys” but added that it alters nothing .
“My mindset this entire offseason’s been to prepare, get myself prepared, and that has been my mindset because I got here,” he said, according to ESPN. “Whether Aaron was here or not here, that is definitely going to be my mindset no matter since I must get myself ready to perform and be in a position to go out there and take responsibility for the group and have the ability to do at a high level and also do my best so everyone else could do their jobs too and just have the ability to perform at a high degree.”
