Aaron Rodgers offers Jordan Love a nice 7 word message.
Jordan Love is embarking on his first training camp as the starting quarterback for the Green Bay Packers.
He faces the daunting task of replacing the legendary Aaron Rodgers, but Love is not trying to emulate his former teammate directly.
According to reports, Love received a supportive message from Rodgers, who encouraged him to be himself, have fun, and enjoy the experience. Fans have praised Rodgers for mentoring Love, highlighting how Rodgers received less guidance from Brett Favre when he was in a similar position.
“He said, ‘Just be yourself. Have fun. Enjoy it,'” Love said.

The mentorship between Rodgers and Love is seen as a positive aspect of Rodgers’ legacy. Despite being critical of Rodgers in the past, fans acknowledge his goodwill towards Love.
Love now has the opportunity to create his own legacy after watching Rodgers for three seasons.
Speaking about Love after his trade to the New York Jets, Rodgers described him as a “good dude” and expressed hope that Love will find his own path to success.
Rodgers encouraged Love to learn from him, but also to make his own decisions and lead in his own way.
“(Love) gets a chance to blaze his own trails, be his own man and lead in the way he best sees fit,” Rodgers said in May. “Take the good things he learned from me. Things he would do differently, do ’em differently. That’s what I did when I took over.”
I kind of like this new Jet Aaron Rodgers.
