Packers fans are already using Romeo Doubs after the preseason TD in Canton

Romeo Doubs was a Green Bay Packers training camp favorite, and his touchdown in the preseason opener sent fans berserk.

One name that keeps coming up throughout training camp by the Green Bay Packers is rookie wide receiver Romeo Doubs. He’s made tracks that beatwriters couldn’t ignore, he’s received praise from Aaron Rodgers, and he looks like he could be an immediate impactful player for any wide receiver corps that needs it.

But in the world of training camp hype, the big key is that the coaching staff needs to see a player like Doubs make the same type of plays when the lights are a little brighter in an actual game. And that’s exactly what the rookie did.

In Green Bay’s preseason opener against the 49ers — a thorn in the side of the Packers in recent years — Doubs hit the sidelines in the first quarter and clinched a 33-yard touchdown pass from Jordan Love on a great play … and there was a fourth and third play call!

Packers: Romeo Doub’s preseason touchdown sends fans into a frenzy

With all the hype already surrounding the Nevada rookie, reactions to the touchdown were far from tame as fans prepared for Doubs to begin adjusting his gold jacket to be included in Canton.

Doubs wasn’t just a one-play wonder either, as he had the first half for the Packers.

He was targeted eight times (not all of them were quality throws, it should be noted) and had three receptions for 45 yards and the score.

Green Bay needs wide receivers to move up after trading Davante Adams, and people across camp have been saying to this point that Doubs could be a dark horse to do just that. If half the preseason action is any indication, it might indeed be the case. Packers fans are already using Romeo Doubs after the preseason TD in Canton
