Tyler Ervin: Walks
Tyler Ervin hasn’t been able to rediscover the magic from last season and has also been hit with injuries in 2020. When Ervin arrived last December, he averaged 9.6 yards per punt return and 26.7 yards per kickoff return. This year, he’s averaging 4.0 yards per punt return and 19.6 yards per kickoff return.
Ervin has been able to contribute on offense but he’s missed five games due to injury. If Tavon Austin plays well, the Packers could move on from Ervin.
Tavon Austin: Re-signs
If Ervin isn’t re-signed, it likely means Tavon Austin impresses between now and the end of the season. It’s clear the Packers plan to get him involved as he had two catches in the game and was the returner. As the weeks go on and he picks up the offense, we’ll likely see Austin involved more. I predict he’ll end up signing a one-year deal with the Packers in the offseason.
Montravius Adams: Re-signs
We’ve seen some encouraging moments from Montravius Adams despite only having a limited role on defense. Hopefully Adams can return from injured reserve and make an impact this season. It would make sense to bring Adams back on a one-year deal.
James Burgess: Walks
James Burgess is currently on injured reserve. In the four games he’s played this season, his role was exclusively on special teams. I predict he won’t be re-signed in the offseason.
