Odell Beckham Jr. Potential Destination #4: Green Bay Packers

One of the biggest question marks in the NFL this past offseason was Aaron Rodgers. Many thought he would be playing anywhere but Green Bay. Instead, he signed an extension and saw his top target Davante Adams leave town. Now, Rodgers is left in Green Bay searching for a new top weapon to target.

Where the other teams on this list have at least one proven receiver, whether it be Diggs, Lamb, or Woods, the Green Bay Packers are in a near rebuild at the position. Allen Lazard has shown flashes, but hasn’t been tasked with a role like this. Rookies Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs have potential. And veteran Sammy Watkins and Randall Cobb are band-aid fixes at this point.

With so many unknowns, the Packers will need to keep a pulse all season on the wide receiver market. The hope is that at least one, if not more, of these players, can form into a reliable target. They aren’t going to be Davante Adams, but Rodgers will need to throw to someone.

If the Packers don’t like the way the position is unfolding during the season they could opt to explore signing OBJ. Beckham could provide a fix for a short time or at least provide another option on the roster. He doesn’t strike me as a long-term option for the Packers, but he could provide short-term value.
