The Green Bay Packers made their WR corps a point of emphasis during the offseason. They signed Sammy Watkins and drafted three promising rookies to try and make up for the losses of Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling.

Filling those shoes will be an uphill battle but the front office has at least made some moves in that direction. However, they may still need to pull some more strings.

The Packers don't have that much financial flexibility to bring in any superstars, and there aren't that many free agents worth making a run at this point in the offseason.

However, judging by how their roster is shaping up and after all the moves they've made, they could still try and lure a former star at a discount to try and take things up a notch. Here, we take a look at three potential options.

Julio Jones showed glimpses of his usual greatness during his lone year with the Tennessee Titans. But, then again, he wasn't healthy enough to stay on the field and prove why he's one of the best wideouts of all time.

Jones has struggled to stay on the field over the past couple of seasons and his best years look far behind him right now. But he's just too physically gifted not to at least consider signing him.

If he can stay healthy at least for the playoffs, one can only imagine what Aaron Rodgers could do with a weapon like him.

Will Fuller is talented and impactful, but he's never healthy. Also, he missed a big chunk of last season due to a PED suspension, all but hurting his market value.

That's precisely why the Packers should try and bring him in. He'd be a huge low-risk/high-reward pickup at a massive discount, as he knows that could be his last chance to succeed in the NFL.

They already have some solid pieces, so anything they'd get from him would be a plus.

And last but not least, the Packers should at least pick up the phone to try and get Odell Beckham Jr. to come visit. He was already considering signing with them last season before joining the Rams.

Most analysts expect him to be back with Sean McVay's team after last year's Super Bowl win, but the Packers could still swoop in and convince him.

They can afford to wait until he's fully healthy and he'd be catching passes from one of the greatest gunslingers of all time. That way, he could prove that he's still got it on a short-term deal and take his career back from the ground.
