Green Bay Packers beat writer Tom Silverstein suggests the team could use TE Jermichael Finley as the team's third wide receiver if WRs Randall Cobb (knee) and James Jones (knee, shin) are sidelined for any length of time. Recently released WR Jeremy Ross might also be an option.



nothing new. Jer has been lining up in the WR formations for years.

OK fine, then we just need to replace our TE. See, I told y'all we should trade for Gonzo Smile
I fully respect your right to have your opinion but that doesn't mean I agree with it or respect you for having it.

This is fine and I think it will work. A lot of adversity hitting our team but I think this is why this shift to a more physical running game has been so important for this team to win these battles.

MmmHmm, I'm sure you did... Whistle Tongue ThumpUp

Anyways, they don't seem to like Bostick at TE, but he did seem like a good receiver so I wonder how he look at WR and I think they should try him there in practice.

Also maybe try Franklin at the slot WR role.

Quarless seems to have problems catching the ball, but he can block and run, play TE, FB and WR. In 2010 Mike McCarthy did a great job of opening up the WRs by using Quarless as a decoy, having Quarless run deep as fast as he can, getting a Safety to follow him deep and opening up a hole underneath which a WR would run a crossing pattern into that area. I've been waiting to see that come back but hasn't seemed too (yet).

I wouldn't mind giving WR White a shot if he's ready. But I don't think he's ready (yet). But I did think he looked the most like a future pro WR of all the UDFAs and Ross. But didn't think he did enough to knock off Ross with return skills.
