Green Bay Packers: Jordan Love Gets Unexpectedly Impacted By The NFL (Report)

The Green Bay Packers feel they have the next franchise quarterback under center.  Jordan Love put on a show during the 2023 season, specifically the second half.

On May 3rd, Love became eligible for a massive contract extension. It will be interesting to see what his contract structure will be given the fact that he finished 2023 among the top-10 quarterbacks in the league.

Last season, Love’s PFF passing grade, passing yards, touchdowns, and big throws placed him in the top ten among quarterbacks. In addition, Love led the youngest NFL team to the playoffs since the 1970s.

His next contract, though, may have just been impacted by the league itself.

According to Alicia De Artola of FanSided:

Jordan Love proved himself worthy of a new contract in his first full year as a starter. It seemed like a matter of course that the Packers would ink him to an extension before the 2024 season began. It might not be that simple anymore.

As Justis Mosqueda of Acme Packing Co. examined, the Packers are in the unenviable position of being “the first team scheduled to hand out a major quarterback extension following the jury’s decision on the NFL Sunday Ticket lawsuit.”

The NFL lost a massive anti-trust lawsuit this week. A jury ordered the league to pay more than $4 billion in damages to residents and businesses who paid for the out-of-market NFL Sunday Ticket package. That’s a minimum too. This whole thing could cost the NFL up to $12 billion.

To put that into perspective, the NFL’s total revenue in 2023 was $19 billion. That was with Sunday Ticket profits which will be going away along with the penalties.

All this points in one direction: The NFL salary cap is surely to be impacted, whether by by constricting or by going away entirely.

If the latter, the Packers won’t have to worry too much. They’ll actually benefit from getting Love signed as soon as possible with a cap ceiling still in place.

The Packers are committed to getting Love’s contract done before the end of July when training camp starts.  It will be interesting to see what that looks like.
