Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams Likely Done

Jordy Nelson v. Lions

It sounds as if the Green Bay Packers will be without receivers Davante Adams and Jordy Nelson for their season finale against the Detroit Lions. Nelson injured a shoulder against Minnesota and appears to be a stretch to play. Adams is still in concussion protocol, after suffering one against Carolina.

That calls into question whether the duo has played their last games for the Packers. Adams will be a free agent after the season. Nelson still has one year left on his contract, but his production has slipped dramatically and he’s set to make more than $10 million next year. So is Randall Cobb, so you can see the Packers will have a dilemma.

Nelson has just 53 catches for 482 yards, a 9.1 average, and six touchdowns. All six of those scores came before Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone.

Adams, meanwhile, has become the club’s top receiver and he’s the only one who remained productive with Brett Hundley. Adams has 74 catches for 885 yards and 10 touchdowns.

With Adams and Nelson out, the Packers are likely to see what they have in Michael Clark. The rookie caught three balls for 36 yards in his debut last week, but failed miserably on what should have been a back shoulder touchdown. The former basketball player has huge potential, but is extremely raw.

Trevor Davis, who has shown nothing as a receiver in his two NFL seasons, and Jeff Janis, who caught his first pass of the season last week, should also see increased duty.

    The fruitcake needs to let Davonte walk….and he no doubt will. He has to keep his record in tact of not drafting, signing or holding onto playmakers. I wish his boyfriend would shove him off the balcony after he take “it” out!

    It is a friggin’ shame that the Packers do not have a QB that can throw the ball to the remaining WR’s to see what they actually have after Nelson, Adams and Cobb . . . fuck. I do believe that I have seen such a POOR output from a QB1 in a regular season game EVER.

      THIS SHOULD HAVE READ; “I do not believe that I have ever seen such POOR output from a QB1 in a regular season game.” Just typing shit about this team gets to me sometimes. Those three fucks TT, DC, and MM have been sinking this Packers ship slowly but surely since 2010 . . .

    McCarthy said whoever makes over 9 million gets shelved.

    Clay Mathews was all smiles, but Mike Daniels flat out refused to sit out. McCarthy and Daniels got into a big brew ha ha over it and they had to be separated, it almost ended up in blows. After all was said and done cooler heads prevailed….as Daniels and McCarthy came to an agreement…where Daniels told McCarthy he would play against the vikings, but that he would make it look like he wasn’t even there.
