3. Add a veteran pass-catcher or two
The Packers have a young receiving corps and desperately need help at tight end. The smart approach would be to combine adding pass-catchers in free agency and the draft.
That doesn’t mean spending big money. First of all, Green Bay doesn’t have the cap space to do it. But they also don’t need to.
Bringing in a veteran wide receiver or tight end could make a massive difference. The Packers knew this a year ago when they signed Sammy Watkins. It didn’t work out, but the idea of bringing in a veteran receiver makes a ton of sense, especially with a young quarterback.
Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs will be starters in 2023. They will get a lot of targets, as they should. But the benefit of adding a veteran at wide receiver and tight end is they can give Love some consistency.
Watson and Doubs are young players. They are still improving. A veteran would give Love more options, especially when the Packers desperately need a play.
General manager Brian Gutekunst has regularly doubled down at positions of need using both free agency and the draft. It will be a good idea to do this again to build the receiving corps.
