The Green Bay Packers are heading into what could be a wild NFL offseason. There are still question marks about whether or not Aaron Rodgers will be back under center, but it appears much more likely that he will be than it seemed a few weeks ago. Assuming Rodgers is back for another year, the Packers will do everything they can to get back into serious contention in the NFC.
Many fans would like to see the Packers move on from Rodgers. Jordan Love is waiting for an opportunity and the franchise has been very vocal about their belief that he is ready to play.
Despite all of that, the Packers seem like they would love to have Rodgers back if he wants to stay. Should he return, Green Bay will likely look to improve the offense around him.
Robert Woods Could Be An Ideal Free Agency Fit For Packers
One of the many areas that the Packers will need to address this offseason will be the wide receiver position. That would not necessarily be the case in free agency if Love ends up being the starter. Instead, the Packers would be much more likely to simply draft another young wideout to play with Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs.
However, if Rodgers is the starting quarterback, adding a quality veteran wide receiver will likely be a priority.
Robert Woods was recently released by the Tennessee Titans and will hit the open free agency market. He has been an extremely underrated wideout throughout his NFL career and could be a perfect target for the Packers. Woods will be looking for a consistent role and would provide the kind of experienced security blanket that Rodgers needed more of last season.

During the 2022 season with the Titans, Woods ended up playing in all 17 games. He caught 53 passes for 527 yards and two touchdowns. Those numbers weren’t huge, but they were solid.
At 30 years of age, Woods will likely be looking for a one-year deal to get his value back up. He has just a few good years left and a big season with a team like the Packers playing with Rodgers could be what he needs to get one last good contract.
Green Bay needs to figure out which direction they are going to head in the very near future. If they go all-in with Rodgers for another season, there will be much more work to do than re-tooling around Love would take.
Woods may not end up being a target for the Packers in free agency, but he would be a nice fit for Rodgers. Everything will remain in limbo until Rodgers makes a final decision on his NFL future.
