If it's Jordan Love's time, his former coaches say the Packers have 'a special one'

  If it's Jordan Love's time, his former coaches say the Packers have 'a special one' The only people who might love Green Bay Packers quarterback Jordan Love more than Mike Sanford Jr. are his wife, Anne-Marie, and his 6-year-old son, Gunnar. “You ask my wife and kids, and there’s not a better person on the planet to them than Jordan Love,” Sanford Jr. said. “That’s a real thing.” The Sanfords had only one year with Love, his final college season at Utah State. By most measures, it was a tough year for the Aggies and Love, who slid from a 39-touchdown 2018 season to an FBS-leading 17 interceptions in 2019. The team fell from an 11-2 record, a top-25 ranking and a bowl game blowout win to a 7-6 mark in 2019 and a bowl loss.

The public spat between Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers hit another level when he didn't show up for mandatory minicamp, and it's unclear if the reigning NFL MVP is so dug in that he'll also be a no-show for training camp in July. In the meantime, the rift between the two sides is being made worse (be it real or perceived) by comments funneling out of the organization's front office -- the latest seeing team president Mark Murphy label Rodgers a "complicated fella."

The entire situation is just that, though: complicated. On one end, there's Rodgers having allegedly stated he won't take another snap for the Packers going forward, and that's mixed with rumors of the team having offered him an extension he waved off; this all seemingly being rooted in the decision to draft quarterback Jordan Love in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft.

ESPN’s Marcus Spears Names The 1 Team That Should Trade For Aaron Rodgers

During a recent interview with The Spun, Spears was asked about Rodgers’ situation in Green […] The post ESPN’s Marcus Spears Names The 1 Team That Should Trade For Aaron Rodgers appeared first on The Spun.

Few are as tied into both sides of this equation as James Jones -- who won a Super Bowl with Rodgers at the helm and had two separate stints with the club during his NFL career -- and the former wideout is telling spectators of the drama to settle down.

In his opinion, in the end, this will all be much ado about nothing.

"Pump your brakes. Just relax," Jones told NFL Network's "Total Access" on Monday. "Listen, I have a very good relationship with Mark Murphy. Mark Murphy has a very good relationship with all of his players. He still calls me to this day, checking on me, checking on my family.

Report: 1 Packers Move Really Upset Aaron Rodgers

  Report: 1 Packers Move Really Upset Aaron Rodgers The Green Bay Packers CEO continues to talk about the situation with Aaron Rodgers. Mark Murphy, the Packers president and CEO, referred to his star quarterback as a “complicated” fella earlier this week. “I’m often reminded though of Ted Thompson, as most of you know, just a great general manager, passed away this past year, […] The post Report: 1 Packers Move Really Upset Aaron Rodgers appeared first on The Spun.

"And that's what I'm going to say about Aaron. If you have a relationship with Aaron Rodgers, no, he's not a complicated fella. And that's with anything. You are talking about the future of a Hall of Fame quarterback's career."

For his part, Jones isn't writing Rodgers out of the Packers future.

"Yeah, it's going to be complicated," he added. "He wants some things. You want some things. So it's going to be complicated. Listening to Mark Murphy talk, I am not reading into it too much.

"I'm pumping my brakes. I am relaxing. Don't read too much into it. I know Mark personally. Mark loves all his players.

"And, yes, this situation is complicated because you're dealing with a guy who wants certain things, you're dealing with an organization who wants some things and you're trying to come together as one to get this thing fixed. So it's going to be a little complicated. I have a great relationship with Aaron Rodgers. Nothing has ever been complicated about [our] relationship.

Is Aaron Rodgers hoping James Jones will broker peace between Rodgers, Packers?

  Is Aaron Rodgers hoping James Jones will broker peace between Rodgers, Packers? Former Packers receiver James Jones has been talking to current Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and also talking on TV about their conversations. Jones appeared Monday on NFL Network to discuss the latest development in the dysfunctional relationship between Rodgers and the Green Bay front office — CEO Mark Murphy’s public remark that Rodgers is a [more]Quick background: Last week, Jones said the situation is “fixable.” Now, Jones agrees that it’s “complicated.

"So when you do have a relationship with him, no, it is not complicated. So get together, get a relationship with Aaron Rodgers like I have one, and get together and get it fixed."

OK so, gleaning from Jones' comments, Rodgers is only complicated to those who aren't close to him, but Murphy's comments labeling the QB as just that would then logically indicate he's on the outs with Rodgers (right?) -- at least at the moment. It's all quite messy at this point, no matter how you choose to mop the floor around it, but time will tell how it all plays out in Green Bay.

After all, it's not the first time they've had a toxic split (should it come to that) from a Hall of Fame arm, the irony being Rodgers once played the role of Love in the saga that saw him eventually succeed Brett Favre.

Jones wants the world to hold their horses, though.

"Everyone R-E-L-A-X," he said, as a direct nod to Rodgers' famous quote.

Everyone in Green Bay will do just that, when/if Rodgers reports to camp. Otherwise, it will indeed get that much more ... complicated ... when/if it becomes the Jordan Love Show in 2021.
