Considering multiple teams are searching for a quarterback right now, Jordan Love could manage to catch a fair market. Although his early career is riddled with red flags, any franchise willing to give Love a shot should jump on the opportunity. It’s unclear what the Packers could gain back, but the front office is likely to receive draft compensation in return for the young quarterback.
For more details on Aaron Rodgers’ decision to stay with the Packers and analysis of the NFL QB carousel, listen below:
At the end of the day, three teams stand out as potential suitors for Jordan Love. He’ll either end up with a roster to become the new backup quarterback, or he could be in contention for a starting job. We’ll see how it plays out, but the Packers don’t have to rush their decision.
With that said, here are three Packers trades that could be made for Jordan Love.
Potential Packers Trades For Jordan Love
3. Cleveland Browns
Although the Cleveland Browns have Baker Mayfield, Jordan Love would make a great fit for this team. Mayfield’s career outlook has become rather fuzzy and acquiring a young quarterback could be a move we see this franchise make. It’s not the best situation for Love, but he could find himself competing for the starting role during training camp.
The Browns have multiple holes on their roster right now and are in dire need of wide receivers. Even so, finding a quarterback like Jordan Love could ignite a fire under Baker Mayfield. We’ll see how it plays out, but don’t rule out Cleveland as a potential trade partner with the Packers in the offseason.
2. Indianapolis Colts
After dealing Carson Wentz away to the Washington Commanders, the Indianapolis Colts find themselves in a desperate quarterback situation. The front office has already given up draft compensation, but they could aim to trade more away to acquire Jordan Love. If so, this would be a great scenario for the Packers.

Considering how desperate the Colts might be, they could be willing to give up more than most teams in a trade for Jordan Love. It’s not an ideal situation for Indianapolis, but they need to find someone to play quarterback next year. Look for the Packers to possibly reach a deal to trade Love to Indianapolis.
1. Pittsburgh Steelers
Another team searching for a quarterback is the Pittsburgh Steelers. They’ve been involved with numerous trade rumors as the franchise searches for a quarterback to replace Ben Roethlisberger. Jordan Love would be a great addition to this offence, as he’d likely compete for the starting job immediately.
It’s hard to believe the Steelers go into next season with Mason Rudolph as their starting quarterback. They could be in the market to trade for Deshaun Watson, but he’s going to garner plenty of interest from other teams who might be willing to give up more assets. Either way, look for Pittsburgh to potentially be a nice trade partner with the Green Bay Packers.
