Green Bay Packers
The Packers, of course, shipped Davante Adams to Las Vegas and now need a new stud at wideout. Green Bay’s current depth chart at the position is underwhelming. Giving quarterback Aaron Rodgers a huge contract but no weapons doesn’t make sense so why wouldn’t Green Bay try to pry DK Metcalf from the Seahawks?
Because of the Adams trade, the Packers have two first-round picks in the 2022 NFL draft and two second-round choices. This includes a pick for each round Green Bay obtained from the Raiders and one of their own. To get Metcalf, any team needs to give the Seahawks at least one first-round choice.
When the Dolphins traded with the Chiefs for Tyreek Hill, Miami gave Kansas City a first-round pick and a second-round one in this year’s draft. If Green Bay wants Metcalf (and I mean, why wouldn’t they?) then giving Seattle what they acquired from the Raiders in the trade for Adams makes sense.
Green Bay didn’t have those picks until the Adams trade so getting Metcalf for the picks they got from the Raiders would give Aaron Rodgers a superstar receiver and Green Bay isn’t really losing anything they had in January: The Raiders picks.
