A Packers trade for Antonio Brown is unlikely, but could make sense depending on price

A Packers trade for Antonio Brown is unlikely, but could make sense depending on price

There’s no question adding Antonio Brown to the Green Bay offense would make it better and the finances make it appealing. But how much would they have to give up to get him? In the same season that Davante Adams truly solidified his position as a No. 1 receiver, Jordy Nelson faded and Randall Cobb furthered his troubling trajectory downward. In the 2018 offseason, the Green Bay Packers went after Allen Robinson on a big-money free agent bid, eventually settling on Jimmy Graham and sending Nelson packing. New GM Brian Gutekunst then tripled up in the draft, hoping to hit on one or maybe...

Packers could use an upgrade at tight end for 2019, but not with the 12th pick in the Draft

Packers could use an upgrade at tight end for 2019, but not with the 12th pick in the Draft

Tight end must be considered a need for the Packers in 2019 and has been a popular pick in mock drafts. However, they’re unlikely to consider one at 12 and that’s the right move. “If he’s the best player, you take him.” It’s the common refrain surrounding the potential selection of Iowa tight end T.J. Hockenson with the 12th pick by the Packers. The fit is logical: Green Bay needs a blocker next to Jimmy Graham, particularly in this offense, and Hock possesses more than enough pass-catching ability to be the future TE1 for this team as Jimmy Graham makes his inevitable (and...

Packers 2019 Draft: Tight end T.J. Hockenson a first-round option

Iowa tight end T.J. Hockenson is a first-round option for the Green Bay Packers in the 2019 NFL Draft. The Packers have the benefit of picking twice in the first round of this year’s draft, and that could help them in their search for a new tight end. Even with Jimmy Graham under contract for another […] Packers 2019 Draft: Tight end T.J.

Rob Gronkowski’s Super Bowl fourth quarter could be a lesson for the Packers and Jimmy Graham

Rob Gronkowski’s Super Bowl fourth quarter could be a lesson for the Packers and Jimmy Graham

Adjusting route trees to fit the veteran’s declining athleticism is important this offseason and New England may have given the Packers a few examples. Heading into Super Bowl LIII, there was plenty of speculation that the big game could be the last for New England Patriots tight end and future Hall of Famer Rob Gronkowski. After earning another ring, the beaten-up 29-year old still could very much decide to call it a career. In a recent ESPN article, opposing defensive coaches said several remarks about Gronkowski’s aging body and athletic traits. “We didn’t game plan for him, or...

Why keeping Jimmy Graham another season was the right decision by the Packers

Why keeping Jimmy Graham another season was the right decision by the Packers

The Green Bay Packers last season fired their longtime head coach Mike McCarthy. His relationship with Aaron Rodgers and the front office had grown tired of his lack of results over the past few years. So, the Packers decided to shake things up and bring in former Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur. LaFleur spent […] The post Why keeping Jimmy Graham another season was the right decision by the Packers appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Report: Packers expect to keep TE Jimmy Graham in 2019

Report: Packers expect to keep TE Jimmy Graham in 2019

Maybe a new coaching staff can get more out of him than Mike McCarthy did. Jimmy Graham’s first season in a Green Bay Packers uniform was less than stellar. The tight end, who came over from the Seattle Seahawks as a free agent, was expected to provide a big impact in the middle of the field as a big-bodied receiving option for quarterback Aaron Rodgers. That impact was muted. Graham caught 55 passes for 636 yards, an average of 11.6 yards per reception, and those numbers exceeded his 2017 totals in both yardage and average. However, Graham caught just two touchdown passes, down massively...

Cutting Jordy Nelson was right call for Packers; the error was overpaying for Jimmy Graham

Cutting Jordy Nelson was right call for Packers; the error was overpaying for Jimmy Graham

Green Bay angered much of the fanbase (and Aaron Rodgers) by releasing Jordy Nelson. But that wasn’t the mistake. Replacing him with the expensive and underperforming Jimmy Graham was. By the numbers, Jordy Nelson and Jimmy Graham have been pretty close to the same player the last two seasons. Deceiving though the stats may be, what they tell us isn’t that the Green Bay Packers made a mistake by letting Nelson go, but rather that neither player were likely good options for this offense in 2018 and beyond. We shouldn’t conflate the plan to move on from Jordy Nelson with the plan to...
