3. Sign Josh Gordon

Still in need of some wide receiver help, the Packers could get exactly that by signing Josh Gordon. ESPN’s Brady Henderson reported in June that Gordon has applied for reinstatement. If his suspension is lifted, the Packers should offer him a contract.

Gordon is still only 29 years old and is incredibly talented. He led the NFL in receiving yards in 2013 and was a first-team All-Pro and Pro Bowler the same season. Yes, that was a long time ago, but Gordon has shown since that he’s still a very good wide receiver.

He spent time with the New England Patriots between 2018 and 2019. In 2018, Gordon started 11 games and finished with 40 catches for 720 yards and three touchdowns. He started seven games last year for both the Patriots and Seattle Seahawks, putting up a combined 426 yards and a touchdown.

In Green Bay, Gordon would get another opportunity to play with a superstar quarterback with Aaron Rodgers. As the Packers’ number two wide receiver alongside Davante Adams, Gordon could make a huge difference for this offense. And with Devin Funchess and Allen Lazard adding depth, the wide receiver corps would be in good shape entering 2020.

Gordon would be another low-risk move, and he could be the number two wide receiver the Packers need.
