Prior to the NFL trade deadline, the Green Bay Packers are anticipated to look into the wide receiver market once more, and they might have their sights set on a certain player.
In a piece for ESPN on Tuesday, Jeremy Fowler examined some of the NFL rumours swirling around the league in the lead-up to the trade deadline on November 1. According to a few general managers who spoke with the insider, the Packers are “definitely” to be looking for a wide receiver. Chase Claypool is one possible target for Green Bay in a trade.
While it was thought that Claypool would be available during the preseason, Fowler claims that the Pittsburgh Steelers had a “hefty price” on him. Prior to his seven receptions for 96 yards and a touchdown in Sunday’s shocking victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers, the former second-round pick had a sluggish start to the season.
Another ESPN writer recently indicated Claypool would make sense in Green Bay when discussing potential NFL trade ideas.
After losing Ben Roethlisberger, the Steelers are currently rebuilding. For the proper price, they probably would swap for just about anyone. The Packers have traditionally favoured using the draught to assemble their team as opposed to signing players or exchanging picks in trades. But now that Aaron Rodgers is getting older and their offence is having trouble without Davante Adams, they might feel a greater sense of urgency.
It goes without saying that Rodgers would prefer the Packers to acquire another offensive weapon. After Sunday’s defeat to the New York Jets, he said that he believed Green Bay’s offence might be improved by simplification. Matt LaFleur, the head coach, responded in a worrying manner.
