Jordan Love- Biggest waste ever?

Waste, verb, meaning to use or expend carelessly, extravagantly, or to no purpose.

This term best describes what Jordan Love is to the Green Bay Packers.

With an extension for three years with Aaron Rodgers, Jordan Love is just a waste for GB. A roster slot, a first-round pick and potential, all of that can be considered waste.

Not a bust, the man is not a bust because he does not get any opportunities to play or enough to where he can be considered one yet. At 23, Love has his prime years ahead of him, but with Aaron Rodgers set to be the quarterback in Green Bay for another three years, it may be wasted.

At the end of the contract, Love will have spent five years on the bench behind Rodgers. While the latter faced a similar situation backing up Brett Favre, this does not mean that the same situation produces the same results. Like anything in life, to develop one must constantly work at it. Practice is no substitute for a game, and Love does not have the chance to prove himself, or at least fail and learn from it. There is an argument to be made that he is behind one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play, and once he steps in all that he learned as the backup may come to fruition. But if it doesn’t, and Love is not good the moment he steps on the field, he is regulated to the bench, and to stick with the theme, waste more time.

Whatever the Packers are not seeing in Jordan Love it is evident it is keeping him from starting for a team.

Arguably because when a team has Aaron Rodgers performing at this level there is no need to change it for now, but eventually Jordan Love will need to be utilized, not wasted.

Whether Love goes to another team, waits out the contract and becomes a great quarterback, he falls out of the league soon, or any other case, it is probably better than just being a waste.
