Yes I know, Green Bay Packers GM Ted Thompson doesn’t trade or sign big names.
The last time we got players worth noting it was Charles Woodson and Ryan Pickett. But every once in awhile the football gods decide to give us something, so here are a few names that not only would make us happy, they would make the Packers coaching staff happy.
1. Jairus Byrd
This is a total dream, but one that Teddy should make a reality. Byrd is a ball hawk, something the Packers secondary has been missing since Nick Collins. With 18 interceptions in the last 4 years, his playmaking skills would instantly upgrade the safety position. Make sure you do not drool on your keyboard as your head populates with visions of Byrd and Morgan Burnett side by side.
2. Kenny Britt
This one may not be a dream matchup, but it would make some sense. Kenny Britt does have talent, even if he himself needs a lot of work. A disciplined environment with a locker room and coaching staff like Green Bay could be a place of renewal for him. Even if he did not do much this year, he could be insurance for the possible exit of James Jones next year. Britt could be a touchdown machine with Aaron Rodgers throwing to him.
Everyone is busy talking about the fire sale in Cleveland, but no one is talking about the fact they should be doing something similar in Jacksonville. I mean, look at what it did for the Browns who are now in a tie for first place in the AFC North. Posluszny has not been a star at the linebacker position, but he has been consistent, similar to A.J. Hawk. He would fit well in the Packers defense and provide some needed depth at the position without breaking the bank.
All three players could provide some help to a Packers team that is deep, but is fighting a bit of a losing battle with injuries.
