The Green Bay Packers have had the youngest roster in the NFL over the past few seasons. Their offense in particular contains several young players including Jordan Love, Christian Watson, Jayden Reed, and Dontayvion Wicks. Green Bay added one veteran to the offense this offseason when they signed veteran Raiders running back Josh Jacobs. The first thing he did after signing with Green Bay is reach out to a famous former Packer.

Apparently Josh Jacobs immediately reached out to former Packers wide receiver Davante Adams.

“I sent him the little eyes emoji. I said, ‘You thinking about coming back?’ But man, he loved it,” Jacobs said, via Matt Schneidman of The Athletic.

Adams and Jacobs played together in Las Vegas over the past two seasons. Jacobs appeared to be recruiting Adams to try and join him in Green Bay, which would have to be facilitated via trade.

This comes after speculation earlier this offseason that Adams may want to be traded. However, Adams stated in April that Las Vegas “is where I want to be” and that he would be playing somewhere else already if that weren't the case.

It would make sense to add Adams to a young Packers wide receiver room that could use some veteran leadership. They may also benefit from having a definitive WR1 on the squad.

Jacobs covered all his bases by praising the receivers who are currently on the Packers roster.

“The receiving corps is crazy, man,” Jacobs said. “I’m so excited just watching them. Any one of them can go at any moment.”

Throughout his eight-year career with the Packers, Adams logged 8,121 receiving yards and 73 TDs in 116 games played.

Christian Watson's subtle conditioning tweak that could help him avoid injuries

Christian Watson is one wide receiver who the Packers are hoping will have a breakout season in 2024.

Watson is the guy who the Packers hoped would become their WR1 after trading away Davante Adams to the Raiders two years ago.

Watson has struggled with hamstring injuries throughout his short NFL career.

He recently visited leg specialists at UW-Madison to help determine why he keeps getting injured. The visit revealed an interesting reason: he isn't carrying his strength symmetrically.

“One, it puts strain on the left side,” Watson said, via Ryan Wood of The Green Bay Press-Gazette. “The left is going through a lot more. Then, I mean, two, when you’re trying to be equal in power, it obviously puts a lot more stress on the one that’s not as strong.”

As a result, Watson has been working on evening out the distribution of his strength in his legs. Initially his left leg was 20 percent stronger than his right, but he has gotten that down to a 12 percent difference. He hopes he can get that down to six percent by the start of the regular season.

The Packers selected Watson early in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft. In his short NFL career, he has played in just 23 games. In 2023, he only played in nine games and logged 28 catches for 422 yards and five TDs.

Green Bay will need a strong season out of Watson if they want to take the next step and go on a deep playoff run.
