Green Bay Packers missed on more than just a Will Fuller trade at the deadline

Packers fans won’t be happy when they find out general manager Brian Gutekunst dropped the ball more than once before the trade deadline. 

Despite the Green Bay Packers coming away with a dominant win over the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday night, fans everywhere remain incredibly annoyed with the front office and general manager Brian Gutekunst. That’s because the Green Bay faithful were hopeful the team would acquire Will Fuller before the trade deadline, but nothing was finalized.

As it turns out, Fuller wasn’t the only stud player Green Bay was in on who Gutekunst completely struck out in bringing to town. Per Ian Rapaport, you can also add New York Giants defensive tackle Dalvin Tomlinson to the list.

Green Bay also missing out on trading for Dalvin Tomlinson is frustrating

Missing out on Fuller was one thing, but to also fail on adding some defensive help up front will also infuriate fans everywhere. Tomlinson has 33 tackles this season and one sack. With his massive 6-foot-3, 318-pound frame, he’s able to plug holes with ease and prevent running backs from breaking free for big runs.

He would have been a huge addition to the Green Bay defense. Alas, Gutekunst couldn’t pull off the magic to get him to Lambeau Field. What exactly is going on in the negotiating room for the Packers?

While missing out on Tomlinson stinks, fans still can’t get over the team not bringing in more receiver help for Rodgers. First, they failed to do so in the NFL Draft, and then missing out on Fuller only added insult to injury. With the Seattle Seahawks looking like the favorites to win the NFC this year, Green Bay needed to make some moves before the deadline to send a message.

However, Gutekunst dropped the ball. We’ll see how much this haunts the team come postseason time.
