Tuesday Cheese Curds: Trevor Davis remains the Packers’ special teams ace

Davis missed most of training camp, but no one stepped up to severely jeopardize his role on special teams.

Given the log jam at wide receiver for the Green Bay Packers, many had Trevor Davis either not making the team or squarely on the roster bubble.

Normally when a player injures their hamstring in the first week of camp and doesn’t practice again until the final week, that’s a bad sign for a bubble player’s chances.

In Davis’ case however, it may have actually helped secure his spot on the roster. Davis is still one of the fastest players on the team and is second over the last two seasons in punt returns averaging 12.2 yards per return. No other player on the Packers has come close to putting Davis’ return job in jeopardy though the team has experimented with players like Jaire Alexander returning kicks.

Head coach Mike McCarthy even called him the team’s “best gunner” last season.

Take that, Jeff Janis.

You can read more on how Davis’ wasted preseason likely didn’t hurt his roster standing and more in today’s cheese curds.

Remember when people wanted Adams cut and Janis to replace him? That was neat. All Adams has done since is become of the best receivers in the league and was paid like it this offseason.
