Bubble Series: Receivers

When training camp started a month ago, it seemed like a sure thing the Packers would keep six wide receivers. It didn't take long for Diondre Borel to emerge as that sixth receiver. My, how things have changed.

Borel’s Problem Could Be Cobb

I jumped on the Diondre Borel bandwagon the very first week of training camp last summer and I’m still on it today. The former college quarterback has what it takes to play receiver in the NFL.
