Leave it to the veteran to show the rookie how it’s done.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers seized an opportunity to teach first-round rookie Jordan Love some of the nuances of being an NFL quarterback during Thursday’s practice at Lambeau Field, appearing to share some pointers with Love after his rep in a throwing drill before the veteran went and nailed the drill himself.
John Doran of Fox 11 News captured the interaction on video and, though no words can be heard clearly of their exchange, the footage offers a glimpse into how Rodgers is helping mentor the franchise’s expected quarterback of the future on the practice field.

The Packers made one of the most surprising moves in the 2020 NFL draft when they traded up and selected Love at No. 26 overall while still having Rodgers under contract for another four seasons. Naturally, the interactions between the two first-round quarterbacks are being closely watched and analyzed after Green Bay’s last passing-of-the-torch between Rodgers and Brett Favre saw plenty of drama emerge.
So far, though? Rodgers has been in great spirits at camp, while Love has been learning all that he can from the veteran NFL passer as he continues to absorb the Packers’ playbook.
