Picking realistic player targets from the Jets in the upcoming Aaron Rodgers trade

Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports

For me, Davis is the obvious answer. He was expected to be a cap injury this offseason, but now he could be a piece of the puzzle in the Aaron Rodgers trade. The Packers need a veteran receiver to replace Allen Lazard (and likely Randall Cobb), and not to mention, Davis played for Matt LaFleur in 2018. He hasn’t quite lived up to his fifth overall pick, and he’s struggled to find a foothold. with the Jets, but he’s also been guilty of some poor quarterback play. We don’t know what Jordan Love will turn to, but Davis is a quarterback-friendly receiver thanks to his route running and ability to work the middle of the field. Not to mention, Davis’ run blocking was a great asset to New York’s rushing attack. Of course, no one will be able to replace Lazard in that aspect, but Davis is both capable and willing. The main roadblock will be Davis’ $10.5 million cap hit, but perhaps the Packers could rework his deal to lessen the blow.
