The Jordan Love Investment

We are all looking at the Green Bay Packers / Jordan Love draft pick all wrong. Love signed a 4 year, $12 million contract, which averages at $3 million per season (a lot less than some quality backup QB’s are worth).
Marcus Mariota was paid $8 million last season as a backup QB. Taysom Hill is making $8 million per, Case Keenum is making $6 million per, A.J. McCarron was making $3 million per, etc.
Your team is only as good as the “backup quarterback” and investing a late first round pick is a great investment (or money saver) to free up “money-spent” on a good backup QB, that may never see the field.

Love’s 4 year, $12 million contract is cheap, and a great investment to own the rights to. Love could be the next great NFL QB (in 2, 3 or 4 years into his first contract, and the Packers have a 5th year option).

Plus, Jordan Love is still tradeable for 4 more years. Love still has four more years as cheap backup QB, with tremendous upside, that can still be traded anytime (which can give the Packers back their Return of Investment later down the road).
