Aaron Rodgers spent 18 seasons with the Green Bay Packers, and few people thought he would ever leave.
However, in recent years the relationship became tumultuous and he was traded in the offseason to the New York Jets.
Just when the Packers were in a position to help Rodgers on offense, they drafted his replacement, Jordan Love.
Rodgers ended up winning back-to-back MVP awards, but that didn’t stop the relationship from falling apart.

So while Love waited his turn, Rodgers finally realized it was time to move on.
Packers legend Donald Driver told Fox News Digital in a recent interview that Love is “the future of the Packers” and can possibly be compared to Rodgers and Brett Favre.
But Driver wouldn’t yet commit that Green Bay made the right choice in trading Rodgers.
“I’m not going to say they made the right decision, or I’m not going to say they made the wrong decision. There comes a time when both parties have to be happy. It’s like a marriage,” Driver said. “Both parties have to be happy, and if one party isn’t happy, they’re going to break up. I think that’s what’s happened. I think it’s gotten to a point where Both parties were not happy, and they decided to part ways.”
Driver wants Packers fans to be patient when it comes to Love, who has struggled since taking over from the four-time MVP.

“The bottom line is, Green Bay Packers fans, we’ve been spoiled. We’ve had two Hall of Fame quarterbacks in the last 30 years. You can’t complain about that, can you? And both turned out to be Hall of Famers and great players. But Jordan Love can be, too.
“It’s going to take him some time. I think the Packers organization is willing to give him some time. He sat three years behind Aaron. Aaron sat two or three years behind Brett. So, it’s a learning curve. It’s a process. Jordan Love has to have the talent around him to be successful. That’s what it’s going to take.

Rodgers injured his Achilles tendon in his fourth game with the Jets earlier this year, which will likely sideline him for the rest of the season.
