James Jones was at one point in time a star wide receiver for the Green Bay Packers. He had great chemistry with Aaron Rodgers and has now become an NFL analyst. As part of his new job, Jones was asked to break down where some free agent wide receivers will end up signing this offseason.
One of the biggest predictions that Jones made was New York Jets’ impending free agent wide receiver Robby Anderson signing with the Packers.
Anderson to the Packers would be a massive move for the Packers this offseason. They had a major need at wide receiver last year and Aaron Rodgers would be getting an elite playmaker. In addition to that, Davante Adams would have a lot of pressure taken off of his shoulders.
Last season with the Jets, Anderson caught 52 passes for 779 yards and five touchdowns. He has been a lethal deep threat for the Jets and would be even more of a factor in Green Bay.
Rodgers may not be viewed as a legitimate MVP candidate anymore. Those days may have come and gone. However, giving him a target like Anderson would certainly help him put up much bigger numbers than he did in 2019.
At 26 years old, Anderson would be a great addition now and long-term for the Packers. Giving him a four-year deal would make absolute sense.
Brian Gutekunst has admitted that a priority this offseason will be adding talent at wide receiver. He can start that process by signing Anderson when free agency opens.
