Report: Geronimo Allison returning to Packers

Receiver Geronimo Allison drew interest as a restricted free agent, but he has decided to return to the Packers on a one-year deal, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.

The deal will pay him more than the restricted free agent tender, per La Canfora, and includes guarantees and incentives.

Allison was on his way to a breakout season before a concussion, a hamstring injury and a torn adductor. He finished with 20 catches for 303 yards and two touchdowns in five games before going on injured reserve.

In three seasons, he has appeared in 30 games with eight starts. He has 55 receptions for 758 yards and four touchdowns.

    Already a full roster at WR and there will also be some competition added in the draft. One, maybe two, WR’s. One for sure. Hollywood Brown? D.K. Metcalf? Parris Campbell? Penny Hart?

    A WR that is also a quality returner would have a huge edge of getting drafted to TitleTown. Don’t make me pray Trevor Davis makes the roster again.

    Slight chance still that Randall ends up back, but I’d put that at about a 5% chance.

  2. Yea man. Welcome back G’mo! If he can have a clean season injury wise….the needle is pointing up on what he can contribute to the 2019 Packer attack. Notwithstanding what happens in the draft, J’Mon Moore can be something special if he let’s the game come to him.

  3. “He finished with 20 catches for 303 yards and two touchdowns in five games before going on injured reserve.”

    That’s the kind of savage play you definitely want to retain, right there.

  4. G-Mo is insanely underrated. Was on pace for 80 catches, over 1000 yards and 8 tds last year before the injury. Most importantly though, Rodgers loves the dude and trusts him. This dude will surprise people this year.

  5. I left out Allen Lazard with my Long Island Iced Tea buzz going last night.😉 The Pack picked up Lazard late last year from the Jaguars.

    Allen Lazard is another young talented WR. Lazard is also big at 6’5″ 228. He was a star at Iowa State and it will be interesting to see if he can stand out in a crowded field at WR this offseason.

    Want to also note new WR coach Alvis Whitted who played in the league, and is known for his work at Colorado State where he molded several WR’s into Biletnikoff award finalists. This was a standout coaching staff hire by LaFleur to me. I’m excited to see Whitted work with this group starting in April.

    Yeah, being on track for 76 receptions and 1156 yards with 8 TDs is something you’d want to retain. He was hurt early in game 5 after his first catch for 14yds.

    He went out in game 7 against the Rams, not game 5 against the Lions. He also missed the 49er game in week 6.

    He was on pace, before game 7 started, for 51 receptions, 770 yards and 5 TD’s.

  8. Yep, that RFA tender was just too much of a financial block to other teams for a 3rd year potential. He at least does not need to worry about Aaron throwing him under the bus, there is plenty of other meat for Aaron to make an example of.

    Adam’s only good wr…
    ________
    He is great not good, he even helped Hindley look decent when fikling in for Roddgers.

    Second of all it takes time, Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson, and even Adams took a couple seasons to get to the level where they were pro bowlers
