Jordy Nelson led the league in touchdown receptions with 14 last year and Nelson’s teammate Davante Adams tied with two other players ( Antonio Brown and Mike Evans) for the second most touchdown receptions in the league with 12. Those stats tell you one thing and that’s Aaron Rodgers is really wing it when it comes to passing the football. Rodgers is so crisp that the Packers churned out the most productive and second must productive receivers in the league. It just goes to show that perfecting the rhythm and timing among the receivers and quarterbacks is essential for success and Green Bay does an excellent job with their receiving group. Nelson has been a force ever since entering the league back in 2008. It’s hard to believe Jordy Nelson is already entering his 10th season but this guy really hasn’t skipped a beat when it comes to his play on the field. Davante Adams on the other hand is a third year play out of Fresno State, who really solidified himself in his second season putting up nearly 1,000 yards receiving. With Nelson as the veteran receiver and Adams as the up and coming young talent, the Packers have two players out wide that can really move the chains for their offense. It will be interesting to see if the tandem of Nelson and Adams can repeat their outstanding results from a season ago? When Rodgers is on those guys will get plenty of throws coming their way and the opportunity to put up big numbers will always be a possibility in Green Bay’s passing game. Really the question mark is whether or not Adams can sustain the success he has had? We know as long as Jordy Nelson is healthy he is going to bring it. Davante Adams has to show his success was no fluke and bring his “A-game” in 2017 too.
