The Green Bay Packers traded away Davante Adams this offseason, and despite already making some moves at receiver, they might not yet be done.
The Green Bay Packers were part of one of the biggest blockbuster moves of the entire 2022 NFL offseason, trading away wide receiver Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders for a couple of draft picks.
With Davante Adams gone, the Packers have brought in a few new faces at the wide receiver position:
- Sammy Watkins
- Christian Watson
- Romeo Doubs
Unfortunately, even the fact that they traded up to get Christian Watson isn’t inspiring a ton of confidence with this overall group of receivers.
Losing Davante Adams hurts, even if you do have the reigning back-to-back MVP at the quarterback position.
With training camp rapidly approaching, the Green Bay Packers are apparently at least kicking the tires on one notable receiver.
John Brown reportedly came to Green Bay for a workout and even at the age of 32, he could probably add some speed to the Packers’ offense.
Will this be the extent of the Packers looking into some help at the wide receiver position?
You certainly hope not.
Although it feels like if the Packers were going to make a move they might have made it already, there are still some players out there that could really make a difference for this team in 2022.
Notably, players like:
- Julio Jones
- Will Fuller
- Cole Beasley
- TY Hilton
- Emmanuel Sanders
- Odell Beckham Jr.
All of these players still have yet to sign in the 2022 offseason and all, to some degree, could make a lot of sense for the Packers in the post-Davante Adams era.
With the Packers now sniffing around John Brown, could more big names be on the way for workouts?
Training camp opens within the next week for every NFL team, so we can expect some action on these players to ramp up a bit.
At this point, it’s at least a little bit surprising that Matt LaFleur has not convinced Brian Gutekunst to make a move on Julio Jones.
LaFleur was the quarterbacks coach in Atlanta with the Falcons from 2015-16 when Matt Ryan and Julio Jones were one of the most dominant duos in the NFL.
It seems like Jones would be a very natural fit for the Green Bay Packers, but at this point, nobody has made a move on the future Hall of Famer.
We’ll see in time what the Packers choose to do at receiver. One thing is for sure — they definitely need help.
