Packers wide receiver Sammy Watkins isn’t ready for the start of training camp.

Watkins was placed on the non-football injury list today, meaning he won’t be practicing with the Packers for now.

It’s unclear when the Packers expect Watkins to be good to go.

Last year Watkins played 13 games for the Ravens, catching 27 passes for 394 yards and one touchdown, all career-lows. The Packers, who traded receiver Davante Adams away in March, would love to see Watkins fill the void and finally realize his enormous potential. But Watkins isn’t ready to get going yet.

  1. Unbelievable and frankly unacceptable how in the same off-season the Rams and Bucs add A Rob and Julio, the Packers lose both Adams and MVS and replace them with Watkins and a 2nd round pick. And average Bob Tonyan coming off an injury is the TE1? Do they want to win a super bowl??

  2. He is coming in out of shape and is expecting to get in shape IN geeen bay? Yikes

    When that 2nd round pick is better than Adams, you’ll realize what a steal they got. He is the best WR in this class, IMO.

  4. You mean the guy who will be playing tight end in 2 years? Yeah he’s great.

  5. How can these guys not be healthy and ready to go. They have the entire off season and they still cannot be ready to go!

  6. hey I’m way ahead of you guys, I expected nothing when I heard his name and I got exactly that. The Packers have another loser in Amari Rodgers, two passes for a third round pick,? Aaron R has long hair and he will be pulling it out this season lol

    GB front office is trash.
    No WR, no TE.
    +++++++
    Been hearing the same thing since 2019 – Green Bay has 39 wins since then. Wonder what that makes the rest of the front offices?

    Us Packer fans keep asking the same question year after year!!

  9. Oh No, it’s the last week of July and the Barneys have already foretold the future.
    Again!
    Why even bother playing the games? 🤣

  10. The biggest difference among all NFCN teams and their expectations for success in 2022 Aaron Rodgers. Nothing has changed.

  11. I give it 4 games max before Rodgers throws a fit and demands the Packers cut him.

  12. The only saving grace regarding Sammy Watkins,…. his deal does NOT include any Guaranteed Money. None. He has to make the squad to get his signing bonus,… $350K.
    Personally I didn’t care for the signing only because he can’t stay healthy.

  13. Watkins spends more time off of the field than he does on it, no matter where he’s been.
