The Green Bay Packers will look different in 2023 without Aaron Rodgers. How will that affect their main appearance?
It looks like a transition period Green Bay PackersThey are bound to leave the state Regular Super Bowl contestants They just completed a deal to send future Hall of Famer Aaron Rodgers to the New York Jets. 2020 first-round pick Jordan Love is waiting for his chance to lead Green Bay, and now the Packers will find out if they can continue their unparalleled streak of success at the game’s most important position.

Without Rodgers, the NFL may have to schedule some form of prime-time games for Green Bay because the Packers can’t guarantee elite quarterback play with the likes of Patrick Mahomes or Justin Herbert. The name value the franchise brings, however, should be able to offset the loss of Rodgers and if Love is at least eligible at quarterback.
