There’s a good chance we’ll still be talking about the Packers’ need at wide receiver next spring. After surprisingly not adding a receiver in this past April’s draft, the Packers will be relying on new signing Devin Funchess, along with the development of the young receivers on the roster, to upgrade an area of concern from last season.

Maybe that will happen. There’s a good chance the Packers will have some more consistency at the position with the addition of Funchess and the return of Equanimeous St. Brown. But they’ll also likely still need wide receiver help next year.

That’s where Allen Robinson could come in.

The Packers tried to sign Robinson when he was a free agent in 2018, but he instead chose to sign a three-year deal with the Chicago Bears.

Robinson is an underrated player, in part due to the quarterbacks he’s played with in the NFL. But despite all of Mitch Trubisky’s struggles last season, Robinson still put up over 1,000 receiving yards with seven touchdowns.

Robinson is talented enough to be a leading receiver in any offense. In Green Bay, he’d form a strong pairing with another Pro Bowl receiver, Davante Adams. And to make it even better, the Packers would be signing a star player from a division rival.
