2. WR Demarcus Robinson (Kansas City Chiefs)
Packers’ general manager Brian Gutekunst certainly has some work to do when it comes to reinforcing the Green Bay wide receiving corps. Two-time All-Pro Davante Adams, as well as four-year veterans Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown, are all slated to become unrestricted free agents later this month.
It is indeed possible that the club puts the “franchise” tag on Adams…and with good reason. Over the past two seasons, he’s been nothing short of sensational. In 30 regular-season contests (all starts), he totaled an imposing 238 receptions for 2,927 yards and 29 scores.
Elsewhere, veteran Randall Cobb was reacquired by the Packers via trade last offseason. And last April, Gutekunst used a third-round pick on Amari Rodgers.
If the Packers do move on from Valdes-Scantling and/or St. Brown, Kansas City Chiefs’ wideout Demarcus Robinson could be an appealing addition. The six-year pro doesn’t have overwhelming career numbers, which is somewhat understandable considering Andy Reid’s team features stars in tight end Travis Kelce and speedster Tyreek Hill.
In a half-dozen campaigns with the Chiefs (and he didn’t catch a pass as a rookie in 2016), Robinson has totaled a modest 145 grabs for 1,679 yards and 14 scores. He could make for an intriguing addition to the Green Bay offense.
