Three-step plan for the Packers to fix their need at wide receiver.

Even with Davante Adams on the franchise tag, the Green Bay Packers had a need at wide receiver. With Adams gone, they need to find a new WR1 and WR2.

Wide receiver is undoubtedly the Packers’ top offseason need.

Yes, there are other positions of need. Offensive tackle is one. Although when fully healthy, the Packers will have an excellent starting combination of David Bakhtiari and Elgton Jenkins. And Yosh Nijman can cover.

Defensive tackle is also a need, although signing free agent Jarran Reed went a big way to solving that. The same is true at inside linebacker by re-signing De’Vondre Campbell, and cornerback after bringing back Rasul Douglas.

One area Green Bay has taken a big step backwards at is wide receiver. Fortunately, there’s still plenty of time to put that right. Replacing Davante Adams is impossible. No receiver will come in this season and match Adams’ production. The Packers instead need to build a strong wide receiver corps to give them plenty of talent at the position.

Here’s a three-step plan for how they can make it happen this offseason, including both trades and a draft pick.
