The Inexperienced Bay Packers nonetheless refused to take a wideout within the first spherical, regardless of commerce calls for from quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
The Packers first-round choice suggests one among two issues — both they’re uninterested in making an attempt to work with Aaron Rodgers, or they know he’s pretty much as good as gone. This shouldn’t function a touch upon the potential of first-round decide Eric Stokes. The Georgia alum may flip into a really productive participant on the subsequent stage. If something, although, it solely stokes the flames of a possible Rodgers commerce, which was already rumored on draft day.
Rodgers present wideout core of Davante Adams, Allen Lazard and Marquez Valdes-Scantling isn’t adequate long-term, and the Packers have failed time and time once more to supply Rodgers with one other weapon exterior of Adams. It seems like they’re not giving into the strain.
NFL followers can’t imagine the Packers nonetheless refuse to draft a large receiver
As we discovered final season, a future alternative for Rodgers was way more essential than including assist for a future Corridor of Famer. Stokes does fill a necessity, because the Packers’ secondary was an apparent want after getting shredded by Tom Brady within the fourth quarter of the NFC Championship Recreation.
However the level stays — how will the Packers even make it that near the mountaintop with out their MVP quarterback? Jordan Love might be very succesful for all I do know, however he’s not able to fill Rodgers’ footwear subsequent season. Putting these expectations upon him is unfair, and a recipe for catastrophe. Taking a cornerback received’t assist in that facet, particularly one with a second-round valuation.
I’d say Rodgers is at house fuming, however he was already mad to start with. If something, it closes the door on a reunion. Thanks, Brian Gutekunst.
