The Green Bay Packers have made one of the biggest wide receiver signings in recent memory. After Davante Adams was traded to Las Vegas and Marquez Valdes-Scantling signed with Kansas City, the team found itself lacking at the wide receiver position. Green Bay took steps to help replace those two weapons by signing Sammy Watkins to a one-year deal. Apparently, four-time MVP Aaron Rodgers had spoken to Watkins prior to the announcement of the deal.

Rodgers should be very excited about this deal. Prior to Watkins, the only first round wide receiver Rodgers ever had on his team was Tavon Austin. The only first round pick to catch a touchdown pass from Rodgers has been Marcedes Lewis. Both Austin and Lewis were drafted by other teams.
