With the 2024 NFL Draft having come and gone, the Green Bay Packers have put together a talented roster that should be able to compete well in the NFC. Even though the majority of roster moves have already been made, there is still a chance that a big trade or two could go down before the start of the season.

Brian Gutekunst is always present when good players come available. However, he usually doesn’t end up pulling the trigger on big deals. Could that change prior to the start of the regular season this year?

One potential trade options was recently proposed that would take the Packers’ defense to the next level.

A Green Bay Packers’ Blockbuster Trade That Could Still Happen

Throughout the course of the offseason, there have been quite a few rumblings and rumors surrounding New Orleans Saints star cornerback Marshon Lattimore. While the Saints don’t necessarily want to trade him, his price tag may force them to make some kind of move.

John Buhler of FanSided recently proposed a trade between the Packers and Saints that would send Lattimore to Green Bay.

Green Bay Packers Receive: Marshon Lattimore

New Orleans Saints Receive: 2025 First-Round Pick, 2025 Fourth-Round Pick, 2026 Second-Round Pick, 2026 Seventh-Round Pick

When you talk about a blockbuster trade, this is what you imagine. Even though acquiring Lattimore would be an excellent pickup for the Packers, they should not be willing to pay this kind of price. Along with this kind of price tag for Lattimore would be a necessary contract extension, which would be expensive.

On the Saints’ side of things, they would absolutely pull the trigger on this deal. Getting a first and second-round pick would be absolute robbery. Especially for a player that they don’t plan to pay up to retain.

There could be something to work with when it comes to this possibility as well. Perhaps the Packers could trade a 2025 second-round pick, a 2026 third-round pick, and a 2026 fifth-round pick to get something done. Of course, that would be dependent on whether or not Gutekunst and the Packers would want to pony up the money to keep Lattimore.

It’s always interesting to contemplate hypothetical trades, which this one is certainly intriguing. But, more than likely, the two sides wouldn’t be able to come together on fair compensation that they both like and the Green Bay Packers may not want to add another high-priced cornerback alongside Jaire Alexander.
