Trevor Davis is yet to make a significant impact on offense for the Green Bay Packers since being picked in the fifth round of the draft three years ago. In three seasons, he’s only caught eight passes. He continues to make the roster based on his special teams work, and he could be the choice to return kickoffs and punts this season.
While Davis might be the best returner on the roster, the Packers may not want to use a roster spot on a player who hasn’t offered anything on offense. They could instead go with another player to return kickoffs and punts, and free up a roster position.
A new head coach does give Davis an opportunity, however. While he didn’t play many snaps in Mike McCarthy’s offense, it’s possible Matt LaFleur could look to give him more opportunities in the Packers offense this season.
But with so much competition at the wide receiver position, it won’t be easy for Davis to get regular snaps on offense, and he could need to make the roster based on his special teams work. That alone could be enough to earn a roster spot, but it’s also possible the Packers go in another direction this season.
