There's no doubt that the best attitude we can have right now wrt the WR/TE groups is hope. I know hope is not a strategy, but it's all we've got. We can look for hints about what's going on. I think Rodgers has gone on the record as being impressed with Watkins, and I guess that's better than nothing. And Watkins himself seems to view this opportunity as a fresh start.I don't believe Bakhtiari suffering several setbacks will change the Packers' approach with Tonyan.
I might be fine with the team's tight end group if the wide receiving corps wouldn't be a huge question mark entering the season as well.
Taking a look at both positions there's definitely reason to be worried about the pass catchers entering the season though.
As far as Bakh and his difficulty recovering from knee surgeries, well that doesn't affect Tonyan or Jenkins recovery, so I agree with you. FWIW I think Jenkins starts the year on PUP while Tonyan makes the 53, anticipating that he can be back inside of 6 weeks. We'll see.
The WR/TE group on paper doesn't exactly inspire confidence. But I trust MLF to create game plans to adjust for the new guys, and Rodgers tends to make just about every receiver look good. I'm not that concerned. And there may be changes as TC progresses and cuts are made. We all need to practice patience for a few months. Yeah, like that's gonna happen!
