Green Bay Packers Special teams will help Jeff Janis make roster
Saving the Packers’ season with a stunning Hail Mary catch last January might not be enough to keep Jeff Janis on the roster.Doug Baldwin Jersey.
The wide receiver position remains clouded with uncertainty for those not named Jordy Nelson or Randall Cobb.James Harrison Jersey. The Packers will likely keep six wideouts on the roster,AJ McCarron Jersey, meaning there are at least five receivers fighting for four spots.Chandler Jones Jersey.
Janis’ competition includes Davante Adams,DeMarcus Ware Jersey, Ty Montgomery,Jason Witten Jersey, Jared Abbrederis and Trevor Davis.Rashad Jennings Jersey.
Adams,Randall Cobb Jersey, a second round selection in 2014,Kawann Short Jersey, failed to make the leap many expected of him once Jordy Nelson blew out his knee.Chris Hogan Jersey. An awful sophomore slump leaves his future uncertain, although it seems unlikely the Packers would be willing to give up so soon on a player named the ‘offseason MVP’ a year ago.
The only way Montgomery won’t make the roster is if his ankle injury keeps him out of action and looks to be a long-term concern. He did more than enough at the start of last season to deserve a spot on the roster.
If Adams and Montgomery are on board, two spots would remain for Janis, Abbrederis and Davis.
It’s hard to see Davis being cut after the Packers used a fifth-round pick to bring him in last month. We then come down to just Janis and Abbrederis.
Packers head coach Mike McCarthy couldn’t hide his praise for Abbrederis at the end of the offseason program
