3 Packers On the Trade Block Ahead of Next Week's Deadline
It's safe to say things are not going according to plan in Green Bay. The Packers own a disappointing 3-4 record on the year and have lost three straight games for the first time since 2018. Earning a fourth consecutive playoff berth is going to be difficult, but the upcoming trade deadline presents a chance to improve.
Green Bay has some obvious weak spots on both sides of the ball, but keep in mind that acquiring help comes at a cost. Many times it means saying goodbye to players on the current roster that have been making an impact in one way or another. Here's a look at three Packers players on the trade block.
Green Bay Packers Trade Rumors
1. Amari Rodgers, WR
Yes, it may be surprising to see the Packers trade away a wide receiver when it is a position they desperately need to upgrade. However, cutting ties with Amari Rodgers to clear room for an acquisition or two is a logical move. Rodgers is in the doghouse with the coaching staff right now because of his misplays. The former Clemson standout has logged 6 career fumbles across 23 games while mostly serving as a kick/punt returner. Rodgers is in need of a change of scenery and has the potential to figure out his problems given his young age (23 years old). That should be enough for Green Bay to get a draft pick in return.
2. Jarran Reed, DE
Jarran Reed signed a one-year deal with the Packers worth $3.25 million back in March. Many times, a seasoned pro will sign a deal similar to that in order to prove to the league that he deserves more. Reed has been balling out in 2022, posting 26 tackles (4.0 for loss), 1.0 sacks and 1 fumble recovery in seven games (five starts). He is on pace to set career highs in several categories, which would only drive his price in free agency higher. The Packers would be smart to capitalize on Reed's early dominance and get what they can for him in a trade. After all, Green Bay can always shift 2022 first-round pick Devonte Wyatt into a more substantial role along the defensive line.
3. Adrian Amos, S
If the Packers want to make a big move and show the rest of the division that they are still the top dogs, they will include veteran safety Adrian Amos in trade negotiations. Amos has played in at least 16 games and logged at least 83 tackles as well as 8 pass breakups in each of his last three seasons. In 2022, he has appeared in 89% of the defensive snaps and tallied 33 tackles (3.0 for loss) to go along with 2 pass breakups. Amos is set to enter free agency next offseason and there's no guarantee he re-signs with Green Bay. A contender looking for help in the secondary would certainly put together a worthwhile package for him.
