Packers: Watch Romeo Doubs’ beautiful touchdown catch vs. 49ers
Training camp superstar Romeo Doubs wasted little time making an impact in the Green Bay Packers‘ preseason opener.
On just the second possession, Doubs brought in a 33-touchdown pass from Jordan Love to cap off an impressive start for the Packers’ rookie wide receiver.
With a release that would’ve made Davante Adams proud, Doubs gained instant separation and it was game over.
Here is the touchdown:
And can we talk about the throw from Jordan Love?
Love missed a couple earlier in the possession, but facing fourth-and-3, he couldn’t have made a better pass, right into the hands of Doubs.
Doubs has been impressive all summer long. From his play in the offseason program to just about every practice during training camp, the fourth-round rookie has made an impact.
He has now turned his first NFL catch into a touchdown.
Doubs isn’t competing for a roster spot during the preseason. That’s already in the bag. But if he can continue to impress over the next few weeks, perhaps he can land a starting job in Matt LaFleur’s offense.
And why not? Doubs has made play after play. Give him an opportunity, and he makes it count.
If he continues to play at a high level between now and Week 1, there’s no reason why he can’t be a starter for the Packers in their regular season opener at the Minnesota Vikings.
It’s also great to see Love make an impressive throw. It’s a huge preseason for the former first-round pick. He hasn’t had many opportunities to play in real games, so these preseason snaps are valuable to him.
