Salary Caps, Part Three: Shall We Sign Up Some More Stars

It’s the latter half of February, and the Silly Season is already in full bloom. Though the Packers have to trim $24 million or so from its roster (in view of restructuring Bakhtiari’s deal), pundits are envisioning adding more top NFL talent to the roster. The problem is that we presently have more top talent than we can afford to keep.

Allen Robinson

Over at Acme Packing, writer Jordan E. Smith has spotted some free agents he thinks the Packers should go after. His first brainstorm is to acquire Allen Robinson, the 27-year-old Bears’ wide receiver. Despite being thrown to by Nick Foles and Mitch Trubisky, Robinson this past season caught 102 balls (6th best), for 1,250 yards (9th best) and six touchdowns.
