A former Green Bay Packers rival wide receiver is about to hit the free agency market. Head coach Matt LaFleur said earlier this offseason the team would look to add a veteran wide receiver but wanted to wait until after OTAs to gauge where the team was at. They’ll have limited options at this point in June through training camp.
According to Aaron Wilson of KPRC, the Arizona Cardinals released wide receiver, Javon Wims.

Wims is a former 2018 seventh-round pick by the Chicago Bears. He spent three seasons with the Bears. Wims has played in 34 games and has seven starts in his NFL career. He has 28 receptions for 266 yards and two touchdowns during his time in the league.
Would the Green Bay Packers look to sign Javon Wims?
Wims is a veteran, but he still doesn’t have much experience as a starter. The Packers would probably like to sign someone to the roster who can be a solid target for quarterback Jordan Love as he works with mainly rookies and second-season pass catchers. Wims doesn’t fit that pedigree. However, Wims would fit the Packers’ nimble budget. He signed a one-year $1 million deal with the Cardinals for 2023.
Wims could be someone the Packers try on as a camp body. But even if the Packers were to sign Wims, they’d still be in the market for a veteran wide receiver to help lead the offense.
