The Packers provided the 2020 NFL Draft with its first major surprise in the first round, trading up four slots to draft Utah State quarterback Jordan Love with the 26th overall pick. Many had assumed Green Bay would target an offensive weapon to help current franchise quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who's still a superstar but is in the twilight of his career. Instead, in one of the deepest wide receiver classes in recent history, Green Bay opted not to draft a single receiver.
Those draft decisions left many to raise questions about the security of Rodgers' future, including form

Favre said that he talked to Rodgers after the Packers drafted Love.
“Aaron and I get along great," Favre said. "And I did talk to him. I’m not going to talk about all that we talked about, but he was — let’s just say — surprised that they went in that direction. I’m not surprised that he reached out to Jordan, being in a similar situation himself 15 years ago. And we had a great relationship.”
Rodgers is under contract in Green Bay through 2023.
