3 teams who should consider trading for Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery

2. Green Bay Packers

Next up, Aaron Rodgers and the Packers are another team that would benefit from having a threat like Alshon Jeffery on the field.

Acquiring Jeffery via trade would also open other doors for the Packers with the No. 30 overall pick in the first round. They could look at an inside linebacker like Kenneth Murray or Patrick Queen or even beef up their offensive like with a guy like Houston’s Josh Jones.

Brian Gutekunst, the Packers’ general manager, has always been open to making big moves on the trade market. Mostly, he has made trades within the draft, but moving a third-round pick fo Jeffery would make a ton of sense.

Green Bay was a piece or two away from a Super Bowl run last season. Adding Jeffery to the equation would take them a lot closer to that goal.

  1. Evan, how is Alshon a good idea for the Pack? Not only does he carry a $15mil cap hit, which is more than the remaining cap the Pack has, but that’s also almost the same cap figure as Adams, who is WORLDS better than Alshon. Furthermore, Alshon is the same body type and plays the same function as recently acquired Funchess, recently resigned Lazard, and yet unproven EQ St Brown. He’s better than all 3 at this point, but also loads more expensive and would cause you to cut one or more of them. Further furthermore, the Pack could easily have a Tee Higgins fall to them in the first or a Chase Claypool in the second, or even use the 3rd rounder you mentioned for another of the myriad receiving options, which would serve the same purpose as bringing Alshon in, again for WAY cheaper.
    This is all around a terrible idea, and shows a shallow and lazy understanding of the Packers roster. I’m a huge Packer fan and would be happy to have you run ideas past me before you write them in articles if it would be helpful.

    • Good luck with the drop king from 2018 and 2019… reason the panthers let him go… the colts fan base got to see it up close and personal in the “1” game he played before getting hurt…. scrub
