Robby Anderson WR

Adding more playmakers to this Green Bay Packers’ offense is a must this offseason after the obvious issues they had in 2019. Fortunately, Allen Lazard was able to step into a bigger role, but otherwise we saw disappointing seasons from Geronimo Allison who was plagued by drops, fumbles, and just isn’t dynamic in the open field. Along with Marquez Valdes-Scantling who saw his snap count all but disappear as the season progressed.

Enter Robby Anderson who is a big play waiting to happen which is exactly what this Packers’ offense needs. He just finished his fourth NFL season with the Jets and has totaled 20 touchdowns with nearly 15 yards per catch, and he has averaged 824 receiving yards per season over the last three. This includes nearly 1,000 yards in 2017 and keep in mind, this has been for the most part with sub-par quarterback play.

Give Anderson a quarterback of Aaron Rodgers’ caliber and we could see some huge numbers from him.

However, in order to bring him in the Green Bay Packers will have to open up their wallet to do so. According to Spotrac, they are projecting Anderson to earn a four year – $48 million deal in free agency. Which given how deep the wide receiver class is in this year’s draft, the Packers may decide to address other needs in free agency and load up receiver early on in the draft. But if they are going to bring in a veteran, adding Anderson and his skill set makes a lot of sense.
