I guess I’m not banking on Cobb and Watkins playing together more than 8 games. Plus, he might not have a ton of leverage, but this is probably his best position to negotiate.

I still think the Packers grab someone like Julio. He has his own injury problems, but it feels like the Packers are still thin on talent there. I’m guessing Jones and the TEs are more involved in the passing game.

I think the RBs and TEs will be the focus... but this assumes Bobby T is healthy.  Watson is there to take the top off the coverage.  I wonder if Amari Rodgers is already considered a bust at this point.  No one talks about him, and he was rarely used last year... and when he was, he was very ineffective.

How does a guy with no contract hold out?

I mean, he can save mileage on his body till training camp, but there's a real risk of overplaying his hand. I wouldn't say the Packers have "good" options, but there are options.

Sorry. I didn’t mean it that way. I was questioning a poster who said Lazard was holding out. You can’t hold out if you are not under contract.

He also said he left because of the fans

Always seemed like more of an AC guy anyway.

Interesting article on Sammy Watkins. He is intellectually honest about where he is at in his career

The Packers have a history of saying goodbye to high quality wide receivers:

Javon Walker went to Denver

Greg Jennings went to Minnesota

and now, Davante Adams goes to Oakland, Los Angeles, Oakland, Las Vegas.

They didn't miss a beat then and I don't think they will now. The Packers did much better than Walker or Jennings did in their next stops.

Those days are over.  Futility is in the near future for the Packers until they upgrade the QB position

One of these things is not like the other.

Kind of interesting that Christian Watson and Mason Crosby are on the PUP list. Wonder how long they are anticipated to be recovering from whatever ails them?

Watson had his knee scoped a couple of weeks back, he should be fine.  Minor stuff.
