Would Green Bay Benefit From Signing Tyler Boyd?

The Green Bay Packers have a well-balanced wide receiver unit. Quarterback Jordan Love has five different wide receivers that can do multiple things very well. Rookie Jayden Reed led the team in receiving (793 yards) because of his elite speed and route-running abilities. Romeo Doubs was an extremely reliable pass-catcher in his sophomore season (eight touchdown catches; tied for team lead). Christian Watson showed his big-play potential once again, despite battling injuries (15.1 yards per reception). Other rookie Dontayvion Wicks was clutch in big moments, as well as former waiver claim Bo Melton.

However, some teams like to go into the regular season with six receivers on the final roster instead of just five. That means Green Bay might want to think about adding one more pass-catcher. Why not consider adding free agent receiver Tyler Boyd?


Boyd Brings Production

If Boyd were to come to Green Bay, he’d bring a lot of experience with him. Despite never making a Pro Bowl in his eight seasons in Cincinnati, he was always dangerous. He recorded back-to-back 1,000-yard season in 2018 and 2019, and he has five career seasons with at least 65 receptions. No, he is not a No. 1 wide receiver. But, he is a very quality role player that could come to Green Bay and fit in really well. Also, the fact that he is 29 years of age would allow him to bring more experience to the youngest wide receiver room in the league in Green Bay.

His Hypothetical Role

If GM Brian Gutekunst were to indeed agree to terms on a contract with Boyd, presumably a one-year deal in the latter stages of free agency, the former All-ACC performer would be a role player once again. He brings good size (6-2, 203 pounds), which would all him to be a great athlete on the boundary and in the red zone. He could line up anywhere and succeed as a No. 3 or No. 4 wide receiver.

The Packers would benefit from this because Boyd would be another quality receiver that could come in and spell other tired receivers. He has also played with plenty of quality quarterbacks in Andy Dalton and Joe Burrow. There is no doubt that the Packers’ offense, especially Jordan Love, would benefit from having Boyd in Green Bay in 2024.
