After a 27-17 loss to the Buffalo Bills, the Green Bay Packers sport a 3-5 record and their playoff hopes are dwindling. It’s time for them to make a big move to save their season.
Things are looking simply horrible for the Packers right now. Although they entered the season being viewed as contenders, they have been anything but that. Their 3-5 record shows that they are in desperate need to make a major splash, and with the trade deadline being this Tuesday (Nov. 1), it’s now or never for GM Brian Gutekunst to get something finalized.
Rumors have been circulating that the Packers will be aiming to add a wide receiver to their roster at the deadline, and that is entirely understandable. Their offense has been far too weak this campaign, and the loss of five-time Pro Bowler Davante Adams is a big reason behind that. Therefore, expect Green Bay to make a splash at WR from here.
Let’s look at some potential targets.
Packers: 3 trades and moves to make in order to save the season
3. Packers trade for Jerry Jeudy
Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy is among the most notable receivers currently in the rumor mill. The 23-year-old is having the best season of his young career, as he has recorded three touchdowns, 30 receptions, and 449 receiving yards. His play has been improving over the last few weeks as well, thus adding to his value. Given the fact that he would be more than a rental, Green Bay should surely make a push for him.
Jeudy has an immense amount of potential, and joining forces with a franchise-level talent like Rodgers could help him take that next step. Keep in mind, he was a first-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, so there is some expectation that he can blossom into a star with the right quarterback. Perhaps joining the Packers could be the best thing for both him and the organization.
