The Green Bay Packers have had a very busy offseason at the wide receiver position. Everything started with the blockbuster trade to send Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders and the Packers drafted Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs in the 2022 NFL Draft to help replace him. Now, it appears that they could look to the free agency market to add another wideout and Will Fuller could be a name to keep an eye on.
It seems like a yearly thing for the Packers to be connected to Fuller. Just a couple of short years ago, Green Bay nearly pulled the trigger on a trade to acquire Fuller from the Houston Texans.
With all of that being said, Fuller has been connected once again to the Packers late in the NFL free agency.
Last season with the Miami Dolphins, Fuller struggled to stay on the field. He played in just two games. That has been the issue for him throughout his entire career.
In the two games he did play, Fuller caught just four passes for 26 yards. That kind of a disappointing year has set the pace for a rough market in free agency and that could work in the Packers’ favor. Granted, there are always concerns about Fuller and his health moving forward, but Green Bay should still take a chance on him.
Standing in at 6-foot-0 with big-time speed, Fuller could be an instant playmaker for the Packers. Aaron Rodgers needs as many weapons as the Packers can get. Sammy Watkins was signed earlier in free agency, but just like Fuller, there are some injury concerns about him.
Brian Gutekunst has been open that the Packers will be active in adding wide receivers. Green Bay currently has Watson, Doubs, Randall Cobb, Allen Lazard, Amari Rodgers, and Watkins as their main receivers. That’s not a bad group, but adding Fuller to that room would make a lot of sense.
Expect to see the Packers remain active. If they can make some additions to the roster that help them compete for a Super Bowl, they will look to make them. Will Fuller may not end up being a target, but he could make a lot of sense at the right price.
