Packers: Four players whose future will be decided in final four games
2. Geronimo Allison
Geronimo Allison entered the season with high expectations. He only played five games due to injury in 2018, but in that time put up an impressive 303 receiving yards with two touchdowns. Despite playing in all 12 games so far this year, he’s only at 240 yards with two touchdowns. Dropped passes have been an issue all year and he’s yet to rediscover last season’s form.
A free agent in March, the Packers may decide it’s time to move on and make some significant changes at the wide receiver position. Davante Adams is a key part of the offense moving forward, and as noted, Lazard has played well enough to deserve more opportunities. The Packers will also be hoping Marquez Valdes-Scantling can make a step up in his third season, and getting Equanimeous St. Brown back will also help.
For Allison, he could need a strong final four games to earn a new contract with the Packers. With a deep draft class at the wide receiver position and potential options in free agency, Allison may be playing for a contract in the final quarter of the 2019 season.
If Allison can get back to his best, he can make a huge difference for the Packers offense late in the season, and it could lead to a new deal in the spring.
