Green Bay Packers: Still Lacking a Second Outside Receiver

After releasing veteran receiver Jordy Nelson, not signing a veteran receiver and waiting until the fourth round to add a rookie, the Green Bay Packers have a question mark at the position. Davante Adams (2,811 career receiving yards and 26 touchdown catches) and Randall Cobb (5,141 yards and 39 touchdowns) are going to start, with Adams as a wideout and Cobb in the slot, but the starting wideout opposite of Adams is the position with volatility.new nike nfl jerseys for sale cheap

After Adams and Cobb, there are seven significant names in Green Bay battling for both roster spots and playing time this year: Geronimo Allison, J’Mon Moore, Trevor Davis, Michael Clark, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Equanimeous St. Brown and DeAngelo Yancey. Collectively, those seven have posted 47 receptions for 590 yards and three touchdowns in their NFL careers.

Last year alone, Nelson caught 53 balls. The No. 2 outside receiver in Green Bay will be asked to contribute in a role that he never has up to this point in his NFL career. Anyone who claims to know who the Packers are going to start as their third receiver this year is lying. It will be determined in summer competition.cheap wholesale nike nfl jerseys

Dallas Cowboys receiver Terrance Williams has a dead cap number worth $2.5 million more than his cap hit this year, meaning that after years of not meeting expectations, he somehow still costs more to release than to keep. Williams’ contract situation is why he is still on the 2018 roster while Dez Bryant sits in free agency.

Unfortunately for Dallas, Williams, who posted a career-low 568 receiving yards in 2017, may have to start 16 games for the team. Here are the career receiving yardage totals from the Cowboys’ top veteran receivers:cheap nfl nike jerseys free shipping

Williams: 3,359 yards
Cole Beasley: 2,599 yards
Allen Hurns: 2,669 yards
Tavon Austin: 1,689 yards cheap nike jerseys nfl
Deonte Thompson: 1,032 yards

On paper, Williams and Hurns are the most likely starting outside receivers, with Beasley playing a slot role and Austin working in as a jet motion player. Michael Gallup, a third-round pick, and Cedrick Wilson, a sixth-round pick, were selected by Dallas in April’s draft, but expectations for them should be nil. Over the last five years, only five of the 110 receivers drafted with the 80th pick or later were even able to match Williams’ career-low 568 receiving yards as rookies.cheap nfl jerseys from china nike

Williams’ public intoxication arrest this offseason potentially complicates his 2018 roster status even more, but if he isn’t a post-June 1st release, he’s in pretty good shape to see playing time.
