Dez Bryant has made it known on Twitter that he is ready to return to the NFL, however, when it comes to the Green Bay Packers, he isn’t the answer at wide receiver.
Even before the season started, many Green Bay Packers’ fans were concerned about the wide receiver position outside of Davante Adams. And now that we are halfway through the 2019 season, those concerns still loom.
While the receiving core did have a fantastic game against Oakland – who does have one of the worst pass defenses in the league – they’re overall production has been sporadic. Without Adams against Dallas and Detroit, Green Bay’s receivers would catch just 16/31 passes for 226 yards. And if we take out Allen Lazard’s fourth quarter of the Lions’ game, in seven quarters Geronimo Allison, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Jake Kumerow, and at the time, Darrius Shepherd would catch less than 50 percent of their passes for a measly 161 yards.
