Green Bay Could Target Veteran Wide Receiver At Trade Deadline

The Green Bay Packers don't look at all like themselves in recent weeks, as they've been taken down by Daniel Jones, Zach Wilson and Taylor Heinicke over the past 3 weeks, and with a 3-4 record, they are certainly in danger of surrendering the division to the Minnesota Vikings. While their defence hasn't been as elite as some expected, the main problems come with a lack of weapons on the outside, and while Green Bay has been linked to the likes of Chase Claypool and Odell Beckham Jr. in recent times, one more name has emerged, according to ESPN's Dan Graziano.

While it's not clear how strong the interest is, the Packers have reportedly been keeping an eye on the Arizona Cardinals A.J. Green, who hasn't played a big role for the team in 2022, and would be a veteran presence and leader that this team desperately lacks in the wide receiver room. Green has just 10 catches on the year for 56 yards, but given his experience at the NFL level, he could certainly play an expanded role for a team that is down to Allen Lazard and Romeo Doubs as their top two targets on the outside right now. 

There's plenty of options out there for Green Bay, and if they still believe in Aaron Rodgers, you have to believe there's bigger targets out there, but if they can't reel in a big name, then Green could be a consolation prize for this team.
