The Green Bay Packers went from having a shortage of wide receivers to having a crowded wide receiver room. With the selections of Christian Watson, Romeo Doubs, and Samouri Toure in the NFL Draft, the Packers now boast a young core of wide receivers. This also includes second-year wideout Amari Rodgers who saw little playing time last season. Of course, seasoned veteran Randall Cobb will be back, as will Allen Lazard (though he has yet to sign his tender). In addition, the Packers signed Sammy Watkins to a team-friendly deal ahead of the NFL Draft. Despite the number of players in the wide receiver room, though, the Packers could still sign a deep threat to add experience to the team.
Will Fuller Is Still Available
One wide receiver who has been mentioned in Packers trade rumors for years is Will Fuller. Fuller spent five years with the Houston Texans before signing with the Miami Dolphins last season. Unfortunately, injuries kept Fuller out most of the year in 2021. He played in just two games, making four catches for 26 yards.
Health is certainly a concern when it comes to Will Fuller. The six-year veteran has never played a full NFL season. In his six seasons, he has played in 14, 10, 7, 11, 11, and 2 games respectively. Fuller’s most productive season was in 2020, his last with the Texans. That season, he had 53 receptions for 879 yards and eight touchdowns in just 11 games.
Due to his injury history, Will Fuller will not be a very expensive free agent target. Like Sammy Watkins, he could sign a cheap one-year “prove it” deal. If he produces and stays healthy, he would likely sign elsewhere in 2023, hopefully after winning a Super Bowl with the Packers. If he does not stay healthy, the cheap deal will not hurt the Packers too much.
