Who is Packers’ First 100-Yard Receiver?

The Green Bay Packers haven’t had a 100-yard receiving game all season.Not the Romeo Dubs, who came out of training camp as Jordan Love’s favorite target. He’s no Christian Watson, but he’s got breakthrough speed. He may not be rookie Jaden Reed, but he’s emerged as a speedster. Dontaivion Weeks, who had a strong performance in the second half of the season, is not a rookie.

Bo Melton became the first to hit 100 in a win over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday night. A late interception on Sean Clifford’s third down bomb resulted in six catches for 105 yards. “I know we have a lot of good receivers in our room,” Melton said. “It’s perfect. I have nothing to say to him. “I’m happy to be in this position and I’m happy to have a team that believes in me to play here.”Let’s put it all into perspective.

Melton was a 2022 seventh-round pick of the Seahawks who spent most of his rookie season on the practice squad and did not appear in a single game. – The Packers acquired Melton from Seattle’s practice squad for the final two games of the 2022 season, but he did not play in either game.At the end of training camp this summer, Melton did not make the 53-man roster and joined Green Bay’s practice squad.

– Melton was left on the practice squad for the first 10 games of the season.

– In Week 12, the day before the Thanksgiving game in Detroit, he was named to the 53-man roster and made his NFL debut with two offensive snaps.

– After a few days he was released and re-enrolled in the training squad.

– Melton was released from the practice squad in Week 15 against Tampa Bay and caught his first NFL pass for 7 yards.

– Melton was removed from the practice squad to play at Carolina in Week 16 and had a breakout game with four catches for 44 yards.

– Melton was again named from the practice squad for the Week 17 game against Minnesota, going 6-of-9 for 105 yards and his first touchdown. “Coach Steno (offensive coordinator Adam Stenavic) and coach LaFleur did a great job.

All the credit goes to them,” Melton said.“I just saw an open space to my right. Jordan beat the DB and gave me a great ball. When I saw the ball floating in the air, I felt it fall with it. I had to make do because there was no one around. I was upset because I dropped one the other day. Jordan made a good throw. I dropped one and said, “I’m taking you back, bro.” I can’t get away from it”.Melton no longer has a practice squad. The Packers must add him to their 53-man roster to advance to the regular season finale against Chicago. It seems like a mere formality.”I’ll tell you, it’s hard to be on the practice squad,” he said.

“I’ve always thought and believed in myself as a great player, and when you’re in the training squad, you can’t have those days that let you down. I have to get out and exercise every day. You never know when your time will come. “I wanted to be ready when that moment came, and even at this moment I’m grateful to God for keeping me healthy and injury-free.”
