Green Bay Packers Asked Minnesota Vikings for Trade to Get Jordan Love
The Green Bay Packers were willing to do anything in the NFL Draft to get quarterback Jordon Love including calling division rival Minnesota for a trade.
Prior to landing at trade to the 26th spot with Miami, Green Bay was willing to stop at nothing to get their hopeful future replacement for Aaron Rodgers. According to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, Green Bay made a phone call to division rival Minnesota in hopes of trading up in the draft.
Green Bay would ultimately land a deal with Miami sending its 30th overall pick and a fourth-round pick (136th overall) in exchange for pick 26.
Trades between division rivals in the early rounds in the draft are not very common, as proven in this scenario again. The asking price tends to be a bit higher, which probably led to Green Bay trading with Miami instead.
Love joins the Packers after playing 38 games at Utah State. During his time in college, Love threw for 8600 yards, 60 touchdowns, and 29 interceptions according to Sports Reference.
