    There’s still a few good receivers available plus Julio Jones soon. I guess they could have signed Adams to a cap friendly deal but I saw yesterday that even after all tue moves they’ve made they were still 18 million over the cap so I guess they solved that problem. Something most likely had to happen with Adams by Sunday and I’ll guessing they didn’t want to pay him almost 30 million a year. That would mean about 40% of their team salaries would be tied up in 2 players.

    Julio has had constant injury issues and has a lot of mileage on him. His best days are clearly behind him. And no matter who’s they sign, it’s a step backward and it’s with a player that won’t have the same kind of chemistry with Rodgers.

    I get that it comes down to finances but, IMO, this makes the Rodgers signing less impactful.

    JJ would be a decent signing money wise and as a veteran but he misses a lot of games. TY Hilton, Odell Beckham and JuJu SS would all be solid replacements but they’re gonna want almost as much as what they just refused to pay Adams and they obviously made that trade cause they can’t work the cap space. I could see them signing someone like Will Fuller and drafting a WR in the first round.
