What’s the Status of the Packers Receiving Core as Free Agency Closes In?

NFL.com has a new article out discussing how things look to be shaping up with free agency ready to start very soon, and how teams wide receiver cores are looking going into the process.

The Packers have a chance to improve their wide out situation in free agency, the question is if they will do it.

You can read the entire article HERE – for now here’s what the piece says about the Packers receiver situation.

Top three WRs in 2019: Davante Adams (83-997-5), Allen Lazard (35-477-3 — exclusive rights free agent), Marquez Valdes-Scantling (26-452-2).

Last season, the Packers’ offense threw passes behind the line of scrimmage at the third-highest rate in the NFL (26.2%), which is why their second- and third-ranked pass-catchers in terms of total catches were both running backs (Aaron Jones caught 49 passes for 474 yards and three scores; Jamaal Williams had 39 catches for 253 yards and five scores). Adams led the team with 83 receptions in just 12 games, but no other Green Bay receiver had more than 35 receptions in 2019. Since last year’s offseason was heavily focused on defense, it’s probable that this offseason will be spent reinforcing the offense, especially with regard to finding a complement for Adams.
