WR Rashad Greene

The Packers have some talent at receiver with Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Equanimeous St. Brown, J’Mon Moore, Jake Kumerow, and likely Geronimo Allison. However, they don’t have a smaller, shifty slot receiver to balance out the group. With the top options of Adam Humphries, Cole Beasley, and John Brown off the market, the Green Bay Packers can go bargain hunting for a player that could benefit from a change of scenery. Enter Rashad Greene.

A decorated college player at Florida State, where he worked with Jameis Winston, Greene was drafted in the fifth round by Jacksonville but could never really carve out a role with the team, largely because of an achilles injury in 2016. After failing to see any meaningful time in 2018, he is looking for a new team and the Packers could be just the spot. He can man the slot, either as a starter or backup, or get some special teams action, all on a minimum contract. Still just 26, he’d be a perfect buy-low candidate.
