Thursday Cheese Curds: Time for our first look at the wide receivers

Romeo Doubs leads his fellow pass catchers into the spotlight.

NFL: Green Bay Packers Training Camp Samantha Madar-USA TODAY Sports

The Packers’ wide receiver group has been under construction for months. Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling both found their own ways out of town, as did Equanimeous St. Brown. In their place, the Packers drafted Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs and signed Sammy Watkins.

Now it’s time to start seeing what the revamped receiving corp looks like. Well, sort of, at least.

Christian Watson is still on the Physically Unable to Perform list and Sammy Watkins looks like won’t play on Friday night. That means it’ll be the Romeo Doubs show. Or it will be to the extent that a rookie receiver can put on a show playing with a handful of the other top performers on offense.

The point is, this is all still a work in progress. The bulk of the work is done, sure, but it’s going to be a bit before we see anything resembling final results. At least we get a peek of things to come this week.
