It all comes down to the type of deal Allen Robinson signs in free agency. If other teams offer him big money long term, the Packers may struggle to compete due to their salary cap situation. However, Robinson is coming off his worst season since 2017. Could a one-year, prove it deal in Green Bay make sense?

The Packers would have to sell Robinson on the idea of getting to play with Aaron Rodgers and opposite of Davante Adams, meaning a lot of one-on-one opportunities. Robinson has never had the benefit of catching passes from a great quarterback.

In Green Bay, he’d have a chance to prove himself and land a big new deal in 2023. Not to mention that with the Packers, Robinson would be part of a team going all-in for a Super Bowl run.

The Packers wanted Robinson the last time he was a free agent, but he chose to sign with the Chicago Bears. Robinson put together back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons in 2019 and 2020, despite some poor quarterback play. Now imagine what he could do playing in Green Bay’s offense with Rodgers.

For an all-in team aiming to win the Lombardi Trophy this season, signing a veteran like Robinson could go a long way.
