Now reunited by a summer trade at the quarterback’s behest, the last time Rodgers and veteran wide receiver Randall Cobb played a game together as teammates, it was the 2018 regular-season finale, and Packers team photographer captured the two sharing a pregame hug. While Rodgers’ face was obscured, Cobb was clearly in tears.

Matt LaFleur’s last words on the competition for the No. 6 wide receiver spot were to call it “a fight right down to the finish.” But it was the phrase he used before that — ”If we do choose to keep six” — that matters more. With the top five of Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Allen Lazard, Randall Cobb and rookie third-round pick Amari Rodgers set, it’s up to Malik Taylor (above), Equanimeous St. Brown and Reggie Begelton to show that it’s worth a roster spot to keep one of them. So far, none has stated such a case that clearly, although Taylor has probably had the best camp of the bunch, followed by Begelton.

By Aaron Rodgers’ math — although let’s be honest, after what happened with former UW-Whitewater star Jake Kumerow at the end of training camp a year ago, the quarterback’s ability to read roster-cutdown tea leaves isn’t infallible — there are five spots on the Green Bay Packers’ wide receiver depth chart locked up: Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Allen Lazard, Randall Cobb and rookie third-round pick Amari Rodgers. After that? Some heated competition among roster holdovers Equanimeous St. Brown and Malik Taylor, veteran Devin Funchess, former practice-squad member Reggie Begelton and intriguing longshot Juwann Winfree.
