There’s been plenty of debate the last couple of months about whether or not the Green Bay Packers have enough quality wide receivers for quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

That debate is almost entirely because of the trade that sent wide receiver Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders earlier this offseason.

The Packers declined to make any “major moves” to add a wide receiver during the offseason, much to the dismay of some fans.

Part of the reason Green Bay didn’t make any big moves could be because of running back AJ Dillon.

Packers head coach Matt LaFleur and Rodgers reportedly love Dillon as a receiver out of the backfield.

Dillon caught 34 passes for 313 yards last season.

His teammate, Aaron Jones, caught 52 passes for 391 yards.

Dillon was obviously a bit more productive than Jones with his chances as a receiver. When you combine his production last year with the comments from Packers beat writer Zach Kruse, it’s easy to see how Dillon could be on the verge of superstardom in 2022.

There’s a lot of production in the passing game from last season that has to be replaced. It certainly sounds like Dillon could help pick up some of that slack.
