Green Bay Packers quarterback Jordan Love impressed in his first full season as a starter last year, and one of his newest teammates believes his best is yet to come.

In an interview on “The Insiders” on Tuesday with NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero and Mike Garafolo, Packers quarterback Josh Jacobs said he believes the “sky is the limit” for Green Bay’s offense in 2024. A big reason is that Jacobs considers Love a superstar in the making.

“To me, just from what I’ve seen, he’s got all the traits and all the tools to be a superstar in this league,” Jacobs said. “I think as he continues to play, as he gains experience and as he gains confidence in his skills and what he can do, he’s definitely going to be the next superstar in this league.”

Jacobs also seemed to subtly attack his former team, the Las Vegas Raiders. He told NFL Network that he was excited because head coach Matt LaFleur and the Packers staff were having him “run real routes” this offseason.

“Just being able to go out there and show that I can catch the ball better,” Jacobs said. “Not only that, but having the trust in me to be able to take the save. It’s just special when you have a guy like Jordan Love in the backfield and you can’t just load up the box on every play and the defense has to decide what they want to stop. I think that’s going to be the biggest help for me this year.”


Jacobs signed a four-year, $48 million contract extension with the Packers in the offseason. He struggled with injuries last year and had a poor season, finishing with just 805 rushing yards and 3.5 yards per rush in 13 games. That was a far cry from the NFL-leading 1,653 rushing yards he had in 2022.


With Aaron Jones leaving for an NFC North rival, Jacobs should see a ton of touches in LeFleur’s offense, and the 26-year-old seems very confident that his quarterback will be able to get him the ball, something that didn’t happen as often as Jacobs would have liked in Las Vegas last season.
