The Green Bay Packers sit at 5-1 atop the stacked NFC North, but it hasn't been the offense carrying the load this season. With their receiving corps beat up, the Packers could use a bit more talent at the position in order to make a Super Bowl run.

With that in mind, here are three players the Packers could trade for in order to improve their offense and become a legitimate contender in the postseason.

1. A.J. Green, Cincinnati Bengals

A.J. Green has said he wants to remain loyal to the Cincinnati Bengals, but the organization also needs to make decisions that will put them in the best position to rebuild. If the Bengals are willing to trade Green, the Packers will likely have to send quite a bit of draft capital over to Cincinnati to acquire his services. Even so, the emergence of Tyler Boyd makes Green a bit more expendable, and his presence could really help take Green Bay's offense over the top.

2. Emmanuel Sanders, Denver Broncos

The Broncos sit at 2-4, and a potential loss on "Thursday Night Football" against the Kansas City Chiefs could lead Denver to trade some established veterans for draft picks. Coming off an Achilles tear, Emmanuel Sanders has impressed this season. However, at 32 years old, Sanders likely won't be a part of Denver's future. With Courtland Sutton looking like a star, Denver could trade Sanders, who would be a dangerous weapon alongside Davante Adams in Green Bay.

3. Corey Davis, Tennessee Titans

Nobody questions the talent of Corey Davis, but his time with the Tennessee Titans has been disappointing, to say the least. He has failed to record a 1,000-yard season and he has seen just 27 targets through six games this year. Matt LaFleur knows what he's capable of though, having been his offensive coordinator last season. Reuniting the two makes sense for both sides, as Davis would add depth in Green Bay, but his departure from Tennessee could also create more opportunities for promising rookie wideout A.J. Brown. With Tennessee looking like a potential seller at the 2019 NFL Trade Deadline, Green Bay could be a great landing spot for Davis.
