The Green Bay Packers upgraded their rushing offense in the 2013 NFL Draft by selecting Alabama Crimson Tide star Eddie Lacy and UCLA Bruins standout Jonathan Franklin. As a result, the team could have some trade bait on their hands as they look to improve their roster at other positions before the start of the 2013-14 NFL season.
The player that the team could consider moving is Alex Green, who finished last season as the team’s leading rusher.
If Lacy and Franklin, along with DeJuan Harris who was a surprise towards the end of last season, work out, the team could make a late move by the end of training camp.
“They have trade material,” a league personnel man said, via the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “Green, not Starks.”
While Green is trade material, Starks is more likely to be released.
Regardless of who ends up carry the ball for the team this season, the rushing attack should receive a major boost as the Packers look to run a more well-balanced offense.
