4 trade candidates Green Bay Packers SHOULD pursue


The Green Bay Packers have more talent than their 3-2 record suggests. However, due to the players not meeting expectations and the coach not putting them in positions to succeed, they are floundering to start the season.

Defensive coordinator Joe Barry seems ready to mix up his passive defensive schemes and allow his players to be aggressive and attack their opponents. It would be a welcome change after they sat in areas to start the season and watched offenses tear them apart.

Green Bay’s attack, on the other hand, was wildly inconsistent. Last week’s game was a perfect example of that: they scored 20 points in the first half before failing to score in the second half. They have a few young players they are trying to bring in, but playcalling has also been a concern.

If the Packers decide they want to add talent to their squad, here are four players they should trade for.

The Green Bay Packers need an infusion of talent and should pursue one of these four players who may be available through a trade.

Robbie Anderson, Carolina Panthers, WR

The Panthers have sexier trade candidates such as Brian Burns and DJ Moore, but they will also be much more expensive to acquire. If Carolina is willing to eat a good chunk of Robbie Anderson’s salary, the Packers should find out about his trade price. Anderson has elite speed and could provide Green Bay with another player who can challenge the secondary, especially since Christian Watson’s health is in the air.

Robert Quinn, Chicago Bears, EDGE

It might be difficult for the division rivals to make a trade, but it’s clear that Chicago needs to dive deeper into its rebuilding. Chicago fell to 2-4 this season after an embarrassing loss to Washington on Thursday night. After setting the world on fire in 2021, Robert Quinn has just one sack and two quarterback hits in six games. The Packers need depth at outside linebacker with Rashan Gary’s toe a concern. It looks like a Green Bay side game!

Kenny Golladay, New York Giants, WR

Kenny Golladay is another wide receiver the Packers should target in a trade. If they can get New York to eat most of their salary, that’s a no-brainer for Green Bay. Watson could be heading to IR with a hamstring injury and Sammy Watkins is already there for the same reason. Allen Lazard, Romeo Doubs and Randall Cobb can’t do it all alone.

Clelin Ferrell, Las Vegas Raiders, EDGE

The former fourth overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft failed to live up to his high draft status and could use a change of scenery to revive his career. He’s a free agent next year, so he could be had very cheaply and would immediately be the third-best point player on the Packers’ roster. He’s sack-free in five games this year and just 3.5 the previous two years combined, so don’t expect too much from him. However, it’s worth a flyer considering Green Bay’s desolate depth.
