Packers: Four predictions for who will re-sign in 2020
2. Geronimo Allison
As long as Geronimo Allison can stay healthy in 2019, he should have another good season. Allison’s connection with Aaron Rodgers should make him one of the top players to re-sign in 2020.
ESPN’s Rob Demovsky noted that Allison will line up in the slot primarily this season, which was expected. And it’s an area Allison could dominate. Andy Herman of Cheesehead TV tweeted that Allison was one of the Day 3 standouts at training camp. It’s early days, but it sounds like Allison has made a good adjustment to playing in the slot.
With the Packers moving on from Randall Cobb this offseason, Allison could be the long-term starter in the slot in Matt LaFleur’s offense.
If Allison avoids injury and builds on his impressive start to the 2018 season (303 yards and two TDs in four starts), there’s a great chance the Packers will offer him a new contract.
With Allison set to become an unrestricted free agent next offseason, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Brian Gutekunst looked to get a long-term deal done prior to the end of the 2019 season. It’s a move the Packers have done in the past, recently with Davante Adams and Corey Linsley at the end of 2017.
