Even after acquiring three wide receivers in the 2022 NFL Draft, the Green Bay Packers could find themselves benefiting from signing a veteran wide receiver. Adding one more weapon for Rodgers could be beneficial for two reasons. It could help bridge the gap between the rookies this season and their progression next year. It could also be the missing piece for a 2022 Super Bowl run.
According to Vegas, Packers are one of the favorites to sign Julio Jones:
The favorites to sign Julio jones include:
- Colts +300
- Packers +400
- Bucs +500
- Bills +700
- Patriots +700
- Cowboys +800
- Ravens +900
- Chiefs +1000
- Falcons +2000
Losing Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling in the same off-season hurts. Adding Christian Watson in the draft helps, a lot. However how much that helps for the 2022 season remains to be determined. Adding a veteran wide receiver would go a long ways. Julio Jones fits that bill. If a contract can be worked out, both sides would benefit immensely. Julio can show the NFL he’s not “done” and Green Bay gets veteran leadership at a needy position.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said on the Pat McAfee Show this week he expects the Packers to be involved for Jones or Beckham.
