The Green Bay Packers are heading into the NFL offseason with a major need at the wide receiver position. After finishing the 2019 season with a 13-3 regular and making a run to the NFC Championship Game, the sky is the limit for this team moving forward.
While there are a ton of positives to take note of for Green Bay, wide receiver was certainly something to be concerned about. Davante Adams is an elite wide receiver and very few people will contest that. However, Allen Lazard ended up being the No. 2 receiver, which isn’t quite ideal.
Marquez Valdes-Scantling did not take the leap that many were expecting. Geronimo Allison was also a disappointment. Now, the Packers need to look to free agency and the 2020 NFL Draft to upgrade the position.
Speaking of free agency, there is one perfect fit that the Packers should pursue aggressively. That target would be Randall Cobb.
Let’s dive in and take a look at why the Packers and Cobb should reunite this offseason.
I would love to see Randall Cobb back in Packers Green and Gold.
The Pack would be wise to try and get Cobb back but only if they can only spend 5 million a year, what he was making in Dallas.It would solve their slot receiver problem and he knows Rodgers. Then draft a wide receiver at 30 in draft. Either Mims,Shenalt or Jefferson. End of that problem.
Next let Bulaga walk unless he wants to finish his career as Packer and willing to stay for not as much money. Cannot put a ton of money in him with injury problems. I love Bulaga but may have to move on and go with Valdeer and find a decent tackle in the 2nd round but don’t reach. Take the best player available at 62. I say a TE Kemet from Notre Dame if he’s their. They should be able to find a decent Right Tackle in free agency also. Around 6 million.
And last but not least they need to get an elite Middle Linebacker and a very good DT in free agency.That means sign Cory Littleton of Rams LB. That would be their one most expensive signing at around 12 million a year. It is a must and then should be able to afford Pierce DL from Baltimore at around 4 million a year. He is a great run stuffer and a major improvement over Lancaster or Lowry. Done.
Then add more depth to positions such as Safety,CB and running back and also DL with 3rd round – 7th round. Concentrate on a QB in 1st round next year.
