Former NFL agent talks Jordan Love extension, Rodgers connection

NFC Divisional Playoffs - Green Bay Packers v San Francisco 49ers“Joel Corry, a former NFL agent now affiliated with CBS Sports, recently penned an analysis regarding the impending contract extension negotiations involving Green Bay Packers quarterback Jordan Love. For the past 10 days, the Packers have had the opportunity to offer Love a long-term extension, constrained by stipulations in the previous collective bargaining agreement regarding the timing of successive extensions. However, there has been scant information regarding any progress or agreement between the Packers and Love’s representatives on the financial terms.

Corry highlights the close relationship between the Packers and Love’s agency, Athletes First, which also represented Aaron Rodgers during his tenure in Green Bay. This shared history could potentially influence negotiations in unforeseen ways.

Reflecting on past contracts, the Packers initially signed Rodgers to a deal worth $12.7 million annually during his debut year as a starter, which, in retrospect, appears remarkably economical for a starting quarterback. Corry contextualizes this figure by noting that Rodgers’ average yearly salary would have ranked fourth among NFL players in 2008. By current standards, the fourth-highest-paid player commands approximately $50 million per season, indicating the benchmark Love’s camp might reasonably pursue.

Corry suggests that Love’s contract should minimally place him in the vicinity of $48.5 million to $49 million per year, drawing from the midpoint between the salaries of the league’s fourth and fifth highest-paid players.

Furthermore, the Packers’ willingness to compensate a starting quarterback at this level was demonstrated by their previous contract with Rodgers, where he earned upwards of $50 million annually. Corry also points out that timing favors Love, as impending contract negotiations for quarterbacks like Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys and Tua Tagovailoa of the Miami Dolphins are likely to further inflate quarterback salaries.”
