Wide receiver is a need for the Green Bay Packers this offseason.

Over the past year, the team has lost three key veterans in Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and now Allen Lazard. That number will become four if we assume the Packers aren't going to re-sign Randall Cobb this offseason.

That leaves Green Bay with an inexperienced wide receiver corps. And it appears head coach Matt LaFleur wants to do something about it.

"We're going to have to add some bodies to that room," LaFleur said, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky.

While the Packers can add depth to their wide receiver corps in the draft, LaFleur hinted at wanting to also bring in a veteran.

"Well, I think some veteran leadership would be nice," LaFleur added.

With limited options remaining in free agency, perhaps the Packers will bring Corey Davis to Green Bay in the Aaron Rodgers trade.

The Jets have NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Garrett Wilson leading their receiver room, and they have since added Allen Lazard and Mecole Hardman this offseason. They may still add Odell Beckham Jr.

Davis would be a good addition to the Packers' offense. He would be a complementary receiver to Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs, while also bringing much-needed experience to the offense.

There's no doubt the Packers need to add depth to their receiving corps. Trading for Corey Davis would provide one potential solution, but they should also draft a receiver.
