3 moves the Packers can make to win Super Bowl LVII with Aaron Rodgers
Despite agreeing to a historic contract with Aaron Rodgers, there’s still work to be done if the Packers are to have a shot at winning the Super Bowl next winter.
There are going to be parties for weeks in Green Bay as the Packers have agreed to a massive four-year, $200 million deal with Aaron Rodgers. Brian Gutekunst had the pressure to get things done, and the GM was able to deliver for the fan base.
However, Gutekunst is nowhere ready to move as he still needs to work overtime to improve this roster so the Packers can try to win a Super Bowl next year. How can he do this? Here’s a look at three more moves Gutekunst can make to put Rodgers and the Packers in the best possible position.
3. Use their top pick on Treylon Burks
As good as Rodgers is, he still needs help in terms of playmakers. Davante Adams is arguably the best wide in the game, but the No.17 can’t do it all on his own. Enter Arkansas wide receiver Treylon Burks?
Green Bay holds the 28th overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft and Burks could be there for the team to take. Burks is a wide beast, as he checks in at 6-foot-3 and 225 pounds. It’s a nightmare for defensive backs to try to contain, especially in the red zone.
Burks is coming off an incredible season in 2021, as he posted 66 receptions for 1,104 yards and 11 touchdowns. He would have the opportunity to go to Lambeau Field and make an immediate impact for this attack.
With Green Bay potentially losing Marquez Valdes-Scantling in free agency, many would say the team would step up with a player of Burk’s caliber. If he’s still available when Green Bay is on the clock, Gutekunst should switch with him.
