The Green Bay Packers have many new faces at the wide receiver position. Davante Adams (Raiders), Marquez Valdes-Scantling (Chiefs), and Equanimous St. Brown (Bears) are all gone. Amari Rodgers, Allen Lazard, and Randall Cobb are back, and Green Bay boasts three new rookie wide receivers from the NFL Draft. While the Packers have much to be hopeful for, none of their current wide receivers had more than 513 receiving yards last season. Sammy Watkins, a free agent addition, has a long injury history and hasn’t even shown up for OTA’s, leading Coach LaFleur to send a passive aggressive message to him via the media. If the Packers want to add a little bit of proven talent to their wide receiver room, a trade for Laviska Shenault with the Jacksonville Jaguars could be the answer.
Laviska Shenault with the Jaguars
Laviska Shenault was drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars with in the second round (42nd overall) of the 2020 NFL Draft. Despite playing in the mess that was/is the Jaguars offense, Shenault had 58 receptions for 600 yards and five touchdowns as a rookie.
Last season, the Jacksonville Jaguars were the laughing stock of the NFL for a variety of reasons. The offense was abysmal, though Shenault was a rare bright spot. Though he did not catch any touchdowns, he still had 63 receptions for 619 yards.
If Laviska Shenault can put up those kinds of numbers with quarterbacks like Gardner Minshew, Mike Glennon, Jake Luton, and Trevor Lawrence, imagine what he could do with Aaron Rodgers.
