1. Allen Robinson, WR

The Packers came close to signing Allen Robinson three years ago but he ended up with the rival Chicago Bears.

Think Green Bay’s No. 1 scoring offense was tough to stop in 2020? Now imagine adding Robinson.

The former Pro Bowler has consistently been among the best wide receivers in the league despite never having great quarterback play. Despite all of the QB uncertainty in Chicago, Robinson has put together consecutive 1,000-yard seasons with 13 touchdowns over the past two years.

In 2015, he finished with exactly 1,400 yards and a league-best 14 touchdowns with Blake Bortles as his quarterback in Jacksonville.

Now imagine Aaron Rodgers throwing him the ball. With Davante Adams already receiving much of the opposing defense’s attention.

The Packers would have two No. 1 wide receivers for defenses to worry about, with the likely defending MVP throwing their way. How do you make the top-ranked offense even better and go all-in for next season? Sign a player like Allen Robinson.

Allen Lazard is a solid complementary wide receiver, while Marquez Valdes-Scantling has emerged as a great deep threat.

Adding in another star pass catcher like Robinson can help make this offense even stronger. It’s the type of move that could help the Packers take the next step in 2021.
