Packers Not Interested in Veteran Addition at Wide Receiver

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who signed Julio Jones on Tuesday, won't be surpassed by the Green Bay Packers.

For the time being, general manager Brian Gutekunst has essentially muted any discussion of Odell Beckham Jr. as a free-agent target.

Gutekunst stated on Wednesday that he "truly likes the group we have" through ESPN's Rob Demovsky.

Updates on wide outs Sammy Watkins and Christian Watson coincide with Gutekunst's remark.

The executive with the Packers claimed that the first player's time on the non-football injury list will be "very short-term" and that the second player will spend some time on the physically unable to perform list.

Watkins and Watson don't appear to be in doubt about playing in Week 1 since Green Bay isn't interested in veteran wide receivers.

Aaron Rodgers, the quarterback, will work on building a connection with some of the younger receivers in the interim,

including second-year player Amari Rodgers, first-round rookie Romeo Doubs, and seventh-round rookie Samori Toure.

In the years after Davante Adams' departure from Green Bay, Rodgers' colleague Randall Cobb, who is entering his tenth season

will probably provide as a safety net for the quarterback.
