The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel doesn't envision the Packers even making an offer to restricted free agent WR Jarrett Boykin.
Boykin entered the season as the Packers' clear No. 3 receiver, but got hurt and was passed by rookie Davante Adams and left in the dust. He played just 122 offensive snaps after Week 3. Even if the Packers can't re-sign free agent Randall Cobb, Boykin appears on his way out. He's a slow possession receiver. Jan 28 - 9:55 AM

Date:

Jarrett Boykin caught only three passes for 23 yards in 2014.

Boykin went 0-for the playoffs. Boykin looked like an emerging player in 2014, but is now a restricted free agent with an uncertain future in Green Bay. Randall Cobb could be on the way out, but Boykin is miles behind Davante Adams on the depth chart. The Pack could decide they'd rather move forward with Jeff Janis taking Boykin's roster spot.
Jan 18 - 7:55 PM

Active for the first time since Week 3, Jarrett Boykin wasn't targeted in Green Bay's Week 7 win over the Panthers.

Boykin remained firmly behind Davante Adams on the depth chart. It's possible Boykin could eventually re-establish a rotation with his rookie teammate, but for now he's well off the re-draft radar.

Jarrett Boykin (groin) is active for Sunday's Week 7 game against the Panthers.

Boykin returns after a three-game absence, during which time Davante Adams showed very well as the No. 3 wideout for Aaron Rodgers. It's uncertain exactly what will happen at the spot now, as the two were rotating prior to Boykin's injury. We suspect Adams will keep the majority of the job based on both a talent gap and how he's performed. Given this tasty matchup with Carolina's awful corners, Adams remains on the WR3 radar -- but there's far more risk here now.

Jarrett Boykin (groin) is questionable for Week 7 against the Panthers.

Boykin has missed the past three games. If he plays, he'll be the No. 4 receiver behind Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, and Davante Adams.

Jarrett Boykin (groin) remained limited on Thursday.

It's unclear if Boykin is ready to return for Sunday's game against the Panthers. If he does, it will be as the Packers' No. 4 receiver behind Davante Adams.

Jarrett Boykin (groin) returned to practice Wednesday, getting in a limited session.

Boykin has missed the past three games. Davante Adams has seized the Packers' No. 3 receiver role. Boykin will likely slot back in as the No. 4 when healthy.

Packers declared WR Jarrett Boykin, QB Scott Tolzien, CB Demetri Goodson, LB Carl Bradford, LB Sam Barrington, C Garth Gerhart and DE Datone Jones inactive for Week 6 against the Dolphins.

Boykin is falling out of the Packers' receiver rotation as he struggles to get healthy. Davante Adams will continue to run as the No. 3 versus Miami.
Sun, Oct 12, 2014 11:42:00 AM

Jarrett Boykin (groin) is not practicing for Week 6.

Boykin is expected to miss significant time with the injury, leaving Davante Adams locked into the No. 3 role behind Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb.
Wed, Oct 8, 2014 01:45:00 PM

Jarrett Boykin's groin injury is expected to sideline him for "a while."

Boykin is also dealing with a knee injury. Boykin's absence will keep rookie Davante Adams in Green Bay's lineup after he played 74 percent of the Packers' offensive snaps the last two weeks, and scored a touchdown on Thursday Night Football. Boykin is safe to drop across the board in fantasy leagues.

Packers declared WR Jarrett Boykin, QB Scott Tolzien, CB Demetri Goodson, LB Carl Bradford, LB Sam Barrington, C Garth Gerhart and DT Josh Boyd inactive for Week 5 against the Vikings.

Boykin is week to week, giving Davante Adams another opportunity to run away with No. 3 duties behind Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. LB Brad Jones is active after missing the Packers' past three games.
Thu, Oct 2, 2014 07:04:00 PM

Jarrett Boykin (groin, knee) has been ruled out for Thursday night's Week 5 game against the Vikings.

Davante Adams will again handle No. 3 duties himself. It's not a great matchup, as the Vikings have been playing solid pass defense with their CB trio of Xavier Rhoders, Captain Munnerlyn, and Josh Robinson. Boykin is droppable. Coach Mike McCarthy is already saying Boykin may miss Week 6 vs. Miami.
Wed, Oct 1, 2014 01:57:00 PM

Jarrett Boykin (knee, groin) sat out Tuesday's practice.

It appears Boykin will miss his second straight game on Thursday, again leaving Davante Adams as the Packers' No. 3 receiver against the Vikings. Boykin is droppable in 12-team leagues.

Packers declared Jarrett Boykin (knee, groin) inactive for Sunday's Week 4 game at Chicago.

Already trending down due to a poor start to the season, Boykin is now really in the dumps. It's a monster opportunity for talented rookie Davante Adams, who projects to play at least 70 percent of the snaps as Aaron Rodgers' No. 3 wideout. He's a WR3 with upside. Jeff Janis is also active for the first time in his career. The rest of the Packers' inactives: QB Scott Tolzien, CB Demetri Goodson, LB Carl Bradford, LB Brad Jones and C Garth Gerhart.
Sun, Sep 28, 2014 11:34:00 AM

Jarrett Boykin (knee, groin) is listed as questionable for Week 4 against the Bears.

Coach Mike McCarthy says Boykin hurt his groin in Thursday's practice, and will be a game-time decision for Sunday. If Boykin, who has already been seeing his snaps reduced thanks to drops, can't play, Davante Adams will likely handle No. 3 duties himself, with fellow rookie Jeff Janis mixing in as the No. 4.
