The Green Bay Packers added three wide receivers in the 2022 NFL Draft. Christian Watson out of NDSU in the second round, Romeo Doubs out of Nevada in the fourth round, and Samouri Toure out of Nebraska in the seventh round. There seems to be pretty high expectations for Watson and Doubs even going into year one. Many fans just hope to see Toure make an impact on special teams. However even with all those assets added, acquiring one more veteran wide receiver like Chargers’ Keenan Allen could be the missing piece for a Super Bowl run.
WR Keenan Allen to Green Bay?
Keenan Allen is the same age as Davante Adams, and almost as lethal of a route runner. With the Los Angeles Chargers giving WR Mike Williams a monster 3 year contract, Keenan Allen becomes a possible trade target. Allen only has two years left on his contract, but an out after 2022. This type of trade would seemingly cost the Packers a fraction of what they got for Adams. On top of that a restructured deal to extend him longer than two years would work out on both sides.
Chargers just gave Mike Williams the bag and Allen is already making 20M APY at 29 years old.
A post-June 1 trade would save LAC 16.5M per Over The Cap. 🧐🧐

Keenan Allen is still one of the sharpest route runners in the NFL and therefore continues to produce. In 2021 he finished with 106 receptions, 1,138 yards, and 6 touchdowns. Above all, he is the exact kind of presence Green Bay could use in their passing game. Again, there is no guarantee the Chargers are willing to part with him. However, if it is for significantly less than what Green Bay got for Adams, I am pulling the trigger all day.
