The Packers now have a huge gap in their arsenal when it comes to Aaron Rodgers targets, after trading Davante Adams receiver to the Raiders.
Josiah Deguara, a third-year tight end, wants to fill the void.
Deguara was the third round pick in 2020's draft. However, he missed most of his rookie season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament. In 2021, he played in 16 games for Green Bay and showed some promise in the final regular-season match. The tight end is determined to be more productive in 2022.
Deguara stated that "It's no elephant in the room but Davante is gone" during the offseason program. Source: Mike Spofford. "All the balls he received were well deserved, so there is opportunity for men to step up, I'm going try to be one of them."
Deguara said that Green Bay's tight ends are proud to be "one of the keys for the offense."
Deguara stated, "We do many things in this offense to make it successful." "We know that we have to step up. We're aware that we have had to step up in past situations and we will do it again.
Deguara said that he feels great going into his third season. This is especially true since he's not being hampered by the COVID-19 epidemic or a knee injury. Deguara was able to play 16 games following the ACL tear, which gave him an insight into what it takes to make it through an NFL season.
Deguara stated that although my knee injury was obvious, it wasn't a major issue. However, Deguara noted that being mentally strong and able to bounce back after bad plays, good plays, and moving on to the next play were some of the most important lessons she had learned.
The tight end caught 25 passes last year for 245 yards and two touchdowns, including a three-catch, 56-yard win against Detroit in Week 17. Green Bay welcomed back Robert Tonyan but he is still recovering from the torn ACL he sustained last season. Marcedes Lewis, a veteran of the club, is also at the tight end.
