Packernation Poll: Head to Head

  2 years ago     135 Views     1 Comment  

The Packers will have decisions to make about the receiver corps at the end of August. All of Packernation will be waiting with bated breath to see who makes the roster and who heads to the practice squad or packs his bags. With returning Badgers red-shirt (his jersey was literally red two seasons ago) Jared Abbrederis and second year active Jeff Janis squaring off against third round draft choice Ty Montgomery, the wide receiver battle will clearly be one of the best in training camp. But when push comes to shove, the decision to keep five or six wide receivers…

2014 showed that the Packers offense is, frankly, a juggernaut. Two rookies that made a difference at positions where that is difficult to do (wide receiver and tight end) in this league will now be coming back after a season full of experiences, good and bad. This experience, combined with the veteran presence of Pro-Bowler Jordy Nelson and the ever-dangerous Randall Cobb will give defenses fits in 2015. Add to that the up-and-coming Jeff Janis and a healthy Jared Abbrederis and the Packers receiver corps will force defenses to "pick their poison". We will highlight all these guys in successive…
