Jordan Love could have been a member of the Miami Dolphins.
According to a new report out of Florida, former Dolphins head coach Brian Flores actually wanted to draft Love instead of then-Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.
Tagovailoa went high to the Dolphins, while the Packers jumped on Love late in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft.
“…you asked me to dig which QB Brian Flores wanted to draft, instead of Tua.. it was Jordan Love…” Omar Kelly reports.

NFL fans are surprised.
“And people wondered why Flores is gone, Jordan Love lol,” one fan tweeted.
“We was really going to end up with the worst QB in that draft,” another fan added.
“Jordan Love !!!, Brock Osweiler?? What about Justin Herbert guys. No one wants to talk about it , but the Dolphins would be Superbowl contenders and maybe favorites with Herbert as our QB1. They all bought into Tua, I always saw Herbert as the pick. Look at what he did at Oregon!” another fan wrote on Twitter.
Love, of course, has yet to show anything in Green Bay, playing behind Aaron Rodgers.
For Tua Tagovailoa, the 2022 season is a massive one.
