Who will the Packers’ leading receiver be in 2017?

New, comments

The Green Bay Packers will have numerous receiving options next year, so who will put up the biggest numbers?

The Green Bay Packers’ offense should be a force to be reckoned with in 2017. Last season, Jordy Nelson returned with a vengeance from his torn ACL, Davante Adams finally had the breakout that Packers fans were waiting for, and Randall Cobb provided a steady presence along with some big playoff catches. Meanwhile, the team got a big boost from tight end Jared Cook and some young receivers as well.

This offseason, Cook departed, but has been replaced by free agent Martellus Bennett. Lance Kendricks is also in the mix at that position, while the team could draft another tight end or receiver as well in a month.

That got us thinking today: which Packers receiver will have the best season catching the football?
