NFC Notes: Lions, Packers, Vikings



Packers HC Matt LaFleur said they “threw everything” at QB Jordan Love in OTAs and minicamp and still wants to determine what the quarterback does best. 

We installed our offense and kind of threw everything at him,” LaFleur said, via Bill Huber of Sports Illustrated. “He’s a guy who hasn’t had the experience as some others. We’ve got to get him multiple looks at many different plays and really find out what he does best and what our team does because, every year, things change in the National Football. Just trying to get a feel for how much he can really handle. I think he’s done a great job of being intentional about his work, how he goes out to practice every day and I think it’s paying off for him. I think he’s made some progress.”

Packers DL Rashan Gary said he’s encouraged Love at practice and thinks he’s “getting better” every day. 

“I keep telling him day by day, ‘You’re getting better,’” Gary said. “He has a hell of an arm. I’m happy that we drafted him, and every rep that he gets, he’s getting better. He’s showing that whatever the circumstances may be, he will be ready and he’s pushing himself for that. I’m happy for his growth and happy to see him in the right mindset. Jordan Love is an unfinished product, but he’s going to get to where he needs to be.”

Packers WR Devin Funchess said he’s getting along well with other receivers Davante Adams, Allen Lazard, Marquez Valdez-Scantling, and Amari Rodgers. 

“Just talking to Tae, Lazard, MVS, Amari, everybody in the wideout room really have been welcoming,” Funchess said. “It’s been good. It’s been fun. I just appreciate the opportunity and the guys on the team.”


Arif Hasan of The Athletic put together a 53-man roster projection for the Vikings following OTAs and minicamp.
