“WR Marketplace is great for providers” but will they add that?

The wide receiver, of course, was the Green Bay Packers’ biggest need to tackle this season when they traded Davante Adams to Las Vegas.

To help remedy this, they will sign Sammy Watkins to free agency, while in the draft, the packers will pick Christian Watson, Romeo Dobbs, and Samori Toure. But the question still remains, has Green Bay done enough?

Watkins could become a favorite on the ocean for Aaron Rodgers, but staying healthy has been an issue over the years. Allen Lazard is an important member of this crime, from his ability to withhold to the relationship he built with Rodgers, but he’s not the first real target. Randall Cobb was particularly impressive last season in the third defeats, but overall he wasn’t the same player he used to be.

We still don’t know exactly what to expect from the Amari Rodgers this season, and the three novice recipients remain unknown, hopefully, to make an impact, but it remains to be seen how far and how quickly.

So with these questions still persisting and many big-name receivers still available at free dealership, are the Green Bay Packers looking to add another? Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network seems to think that’s what’s going on.

“This is a big, wide reception market for Packers, and I think they’re going to be involved with Jarvis Landry, Julio Jones and OBJ (Odell Beckham Jr.),” Rapoport said In The Pat McAfee Show.

On paper, signing Jones, Landry or Beckham Jr. makes sense for the Green Bay Packers, but there are always other factors to consider, which is why I’m a bit skeptical.

Although Jones wasn’t the receiver he used to be, he could still be a difference maker in this Packers offense. However, it’s worth noting that he’s only made 19 games over the past two seasons, and there’s a very real possibility that he’s outside of the players’ price range.

While Landry will be an upgrade in the slot, from a pure skill set standpoint, it’s a bit similar to that of Cobb and Amari Rodgers. Finally, Beckham is still working his way back from an ACL injury – his second ACL injury in the past two years – and we don’t know when he will be available. There is a possibility that he will miss a large part of the regular season.

On top of all that, do Green Bay Packers have a place on the list? I feel fairly confident in saying that as long as Watkins is healthy he will be on the list, as will Lazard, Cope, Rodgers, Watson and Dobbs. That’s actually six receivers that counted – which is usually the number that Packers keep – and that includes Tori heading to the coaching squad.

Now, that doesn’t mean there are still potential upgrades still available, but realistically, who of this group would packagers be willing to part with other methods? Or maybe they decided that they wanted to keep seven receivers instead of the usual six as a way to solve this problem.

From a salary cap perspective, Over the Cap owns the Green Bay Packers with $10.8 million of available space. However, once you calculate the remaining members of the draft class that need to be signed, the 52nd and 53rd players on the roster, and the coaching staff, as well as having reserves for any spending in the season that should happen, And Ingallswhich tracks the Packers salary cap status, expects Green Bay to actually be more than $1 million above the salary cap once those extra expenses hit the books.

Although the Packers have exhausted many of their moves creating the caps for the 2021 season, one big one that still stands is an extension of Jaire Alexander. Even with Alexander making the highest earner in football, the Packers can still lower their $13.3 million cap for 2022 of $6 million — and possibly more — According to Engels. The Packers can also add canceled years to Lazard’s restricted free agent contract just as they did with Robert Tonyan last year.

However, even with both moves made, I’m still not sure how much flexibility the cover space players will actually have to sign with any of the players mentioned above – that is, unless they are willing to strike a friendlier deal with the team.

With that said, if you’re still holding out hope, it’s worth noting that there’s still plenty of time. Like Andy Hermann Recently, the Packer Report noted, this time last year, that Rasul Doulas, Corey Bojorquez, Dennis Kelly and De’Vondre Campbell – all major contributors – weren’t even on the team yet.

With the question marks still at the receiver, I certainly understand why adding the free agent makes sense, but for the reasons already discussed, I don’t expect that to happen either. Most likely, it must have been Matt LaFleur’s scheme and the Rodgers play that should elevate this spacious reception room.
