SALT LAKE CITY — Former Utah State quarterback Jordan Love is bringing home plenty of money on his rookie NFL deal and making a little history while doing it.

The Green Bay Packers announced Wednesday that Love, the team’s first-round pick in April’s 2020 NFL draft, and second-round selection A.J. Dillon, a running back out of Boston College, have signed their rookie contracts.

Love’s four-year contract is worth $12.38 million, with a signing bonus of just over $6.5 million, according to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo. Love’s rookie deal with the Packers, who traded up five spots to draft Love, is also fully guaranteed, the first time a No. 26 pick has received a fully guaranteed contract under the current rookie contract system, Garafolo reported.

Love, who left Logan following his junior season, will back up All-Pro Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay. Love threw for 8,600 yards and 60 touchdowns while completing 61.2% of his passes in three seasons at USU and was the fourth quarterback taken in the 2020 NFL draft.

Love is projected to make $610,000 in base salary as a rookie in 2020 with an additional $1.6 million in signing bonus, according to Spotrac, with his salary increasing each year until it reaches $2.29 million in base salary in 2023, with a fifth-year option available.

“I definitely feel like I’m a good fit for the offense,” Love told Fox 11’s John Doran this week. “Just seeing the plays they run, the actions and whatnot. I think it’s a really good fit for me.”

The Packers also announced Wednesday that, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the team will not be holding their training camp at St. Norbert College this summer. St. Norbert College has hosted Green Bay for training camp since 1958. The team will instead use its facilities at Lambeau Field for the entirety of training camp.

“It’s been weird,” Love told Doran of how COVID-19 has changed the offseason process this year. “Really nothing changed after the draft. I was still at home, just a weird feeling. Then I got the playbook so it’s just been meetings and whatnot with the team. That’s pretty much been it, that and training.”
