John Brown listed as potential target for Packers
The Green Bay Packers look like they will be in need of some more playmakers in the passing game next season considering their direction in being a fully revamped offense in 2019. New head coach Matt LaFleur has a fantastic offensive mind and will likely be on the look out for more weapons this offseason.
The Packers are likely going to move on from wide receiver Randall Cobb, so that leaves Davante Adams by himself for now in addition to the team’s young and rookie receivers. One of the top free agent wide receivers, John Brown, is coming off a solid season with the Baltimore Ravens, and he is likely going to be looking for another team next season.
Bleacher Report’s Matt Mosher had high praise for the Ravens receiver and he believes it would be interesting to see how Brown fits into the Packers’ offensive scheme.
“Brown is a smaller receiver, but he can stretch the field from the outside and in the slot. Unfortunately for him, he has been settled with poor quarterback play for the last several seasons. However, that hasn’t prevented him from being productive. Throughout his five-year career, Brown has averaged 15 yards per reception and a career-high 17 yards per catch this year with the Baltimore Ravens.”
Next season the Packers fair to be on track to regain their elite offensive capabilities and could see themselves back in the playoff hunt after an uncharacteristic 2018 season. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers would surely love to have a player like John Brown at his disposal. The addition of Brown could be just what the Packers need to push their potentially high powered offense over the edge.
