Jarvis Landry To Green Bay Makes Sense

Wide receiver is not a position of need for the Green Bay Packers. They have five quality receivers that each have their own unique skill-set. Rookie Jayden Reed was the do-it-all twitchy receiver that had a record-breaking season, which saw him lead Green Bay in receiving. Christian Watson, despite battling injuries, is a big-play threat whenever he is on the field. Romeo Doubs might actually be the team’s No. 1 wide receiver because of his consistency. Dontayvion Wicks was quietly very clutch. Lastly, waiver claim Bo Melton turned out to be more than a waiver claim down the stretch.

The Packers have a great group of wide receivers. Those five should be on the final roster moving into Week 1. But, this doesn’t mean they will roll with only five total receivers. After all, they are the youngest group of receivers in the league. A veteran receiver like Jarvis Landry wouldn’t be a bad signing, especially on a cheaper deal. Here is why:


Experienced And Productive

Landry surprisingly took 2023 off after spending 2022 with the Saints. But before that season, he was one of the most consistent receivers in the league. The five-time Pro-Bowler has six career seasons with at least 800 or more receiving yards, including three 1,000-yard seasons. He also has six career 80-catch seasons. His 564 receptions within his first five seasons are an NFL record.

Now, the nine-year veteran will turn 32 years of age this upcoming football season. He is not what he once was and is at best a role player. But that is exactly why he could fit in Green Bay.


His Hypothetical Role In Green Bay

The former NFL receptions leader would at best be a role player from the slot. With his experience of being an elite player, he could help players like Jayden Reed and Bo Melton grow from that slot. Remember, Landry is a smaller receiver (5-11, 200 pounds) that plays faster than he times (4.7 40-yard dash time). He could also provide signal-caller Jordan Love with a veteran option in key moments. Considering Landry took 2023 off and only started three games for New Orleans in 2022, a one-year deal for the veteran minimum makes the most sense. Give him a chance to be a leader while also winning his first Super Bowl.
