Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers are fresh off of a brutal loss against the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game by a final score of 37-20. While the loss stings, it still shows how close this team is to competing for a Super Bowl appearance.

Looking ahead to the upcoming NFL offseason, the Packers do have a few needs to address. One of those needs will be bringing in another wide receiver or two. Davante Adams is a legitimate superstar, but behind them there just weren’t any consistent options for Green Bay.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling simply did not have the breakout season that many were expecting. Allen Lazard showed potential, but he has no business being a No. 2 wideout on an NFL depth chart at this point. Jake Kumerow is a quality receiver, but again, he should not be relied upon week in and week out.

If the Packers want to improve their offense, they will need to look to free agency. Brian Gutekunst won’t have huge money to spend, unless he chooses to spend big on one particular player, but there are some great options available for the team to look at.

All of that being said, let’s dive in and take a look at four potential wide receivers the Packers should target in free agency.


  1. Im a true packers fan they need to get rid of the defensive coach bring someone in like a nick sable. Get someone better then Rogers. Get back to using a full back open up the hole for the running back & good corners, tight ends now i mean now and a line that can protect the quarterback.

  2. Yeah from last in the league in defense a couple years ago to eigth overall this year get rid of the coach? ??? Nick saban you mean? Our running game is also pretty good. We need to work on our run defense and our receiver. Those are the actual holes we have lol

  3. So, basically replace the entire team that was one game from a SB? Do you even watch the Packers, it was a great season and we are not far away from a SB. Enjoy the ride and look on the bright side we beat the Vikings twice, that’s the next best thing from going to the Super Bowl.

  4. Needs:
    Offensive tackle
    Atleast two defensive tackles
    Atleast two Middle linebackers
    Tight end
    Nickel back
    Nose tackle
