Green Bay Packers 53-man roster projection includes new targets for Aaron Rodgers

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers open the 2022 regular season against the Minnesota Vikings on Sept. 11 at U.S. Bank Stadium.

The Packers return much of the same group that went 13-4 last season before losing in the NFC divisional playoff round to the San Francisco 49ers but with one notable exception: All-Pro wide receiver Davante Adams.

One player likely won't be able to replicate Adams' production, and there's not a clear-cut No. 1 wideout on the roster. However, opportunities will be aplenty. As veteran wide receiver Randall Cobb said, "There's 150 more targets that are going to be spread around now." Which wideouts show playmaking potential in training camp and preseason action will determine how many of them general manager Brian Gutekunst keeps on the 53-man roster.

QUARTERBACK (2): Aaron Rodgers, Jordan Love

This is a critical year for Love. He needs a strong preseason and must play better in regular-season opportunities than he did last year for the Packers to either become convinced he can eventually take over for Rodgers or to convince another team to trade for him next offseason.
