1. Add speed to the roster… a lot
Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, Davante Adams and Geronimo Allison make up one of the slowest group of receivers in the NFL. The Packers didn’t do anything to improve their skill positions over the last several seasons, and left their slow receivers starving for speed.
While skilled in other areas, Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb are not the players they used to be, while Davante Adams is a better possession receiver than an all-out burner.
MORE PACKERS: Five players Green Bay should target in free agency
One player for the Packers to consider is Seattle’s Paul Richardson. A free agent this March, Richardson has been the biggest source of speed for the Seahawks and is giving their offense what it thought it was going to get regularly out of Percy Harvin.
The running backs are slow as well, and nothing needs to be said about Richard Rodgers‘ running ability.
If the Packers are ever going to get back to their high scoring days of 2014, then they simply must find speed to add to their offense in order to become a unit opposing defenses fear again.
There is a new general manager in charge, and new personnel needs to be brought in swiftly.
