Reggie WayneI think someone is pulling my leg. I see no way that this is being discussed seriously (if, in fact, it’s true at all).

Packers Have No Need at WR

The Packers are currently set at one, two, and three receiver. Unless Adams takes a step back like Boykin did, that group is solid. The real receiver competition for the Packers is for the fourth slot. If the Packers picked him up, Wayne would be the fourth receiver and would watch most of the game from the sidelines. There’s no way Reggie would be satisfied with that situation and there’s no reason on earth for the Packers to hire him only to put him in that situation. There are too many up-and-coming receivers on the roster that could fill that fourth slot.

Most Dangerous Substance on Earth - Packer Offense

Free Agency and Tight-Fist Ted

Ted doesn’t open his wallet for just any free agent. In fact, Ted rarely opens his wallet for a free agent. He will go after a free agent to fill a team need, but he has to get really good value out of the deal. That means he must get someone dirt cheap or pay a reasonable price for high production (ie. Julius Peppers).

The problem in this situation is that…

There is no Packer need for receivers.

Conclusions

Even if there is a grain of truth to the Packers’ “interest” in Reggie Wayne, nothing will come of it.

    After reading the story about how his heart was no longer in it and the health issues going on with his mom and other family members, I find his decision to be very respectful and honest to himself. Money doesn’t create happiness, and it’s enlightening to see him be true to himself. Good luck in your future endeavors B.J. We’ll miss you 💚💛💚💛

  27.   March 14, 2016, 3:27 pm

    Best of Luck BJ in whatever you decide to do. We will miss you.

  28.   March 14, 2016, 3:26 pm

    Well doesn’t this suck. Ok, BJ, let’s do all the things YOU want to do.

    •   March 15, 2016, 7:51 pm

      I can only assume since I the first to comment to my own post, there is little chance anyone, let alone BJ Raji will ever read this. However, I am compelled to post this reply for the record and to officially say, I am sorry. When I originally replied to this, I had no idea of the troubles BJ is facing and was simply making an attempt at being sarcastic. Had I known then what I know now, my comment would have been entirely different, and would have gone something like this.

      We all have mothers, and any son who is willing to surrender what has been a tremendous and promising career for her and her sister, was raised by one hell of a mom. Best of luck to you sir, off the field, and if ever possible again, on.
