Green Bay Packers Trade Talk: Kenny Britt is the answer


Britt, Rodgers chooses you.

 

So the unthinkable (unless you were this writer a few weeks ago …) has happened.

We just had to finish a game with only two receivers available.

James Jones went out with a sprained posterior cruciate knee ligament, and Randall Cobb is supposed to be out for up to eight weeks with a fractured fibula.

So what do we do in the meantime?

There is the possibility that Jones will be back on the field versus the Browns this weekend. While that is the hoped outcome, you do not want to put more on a player returning from injury than you must. Jones back would be great, but it would be best to limit what he has to do.

Even so at this point, we are still only at three receivers.

Ted, it is time. We all know you are probably looking to Myles White or even at other team’s practice squads.

Please do not do that. Trade for a good player.

I brought it up last week, and I still think it is the best option is Kenny Britt.

Should the Packers trade for a Wide Receiver?

Britt has 153 receptions so far in his career for a nice 15.8 yard average, more than 2,400 yards receiving, and 19 touchdowns.

The thing that is not brought up is that Britt has not had the luxury of a great quarterback to help him utilize his talent. He has had the likes of Vince Young, Kerry Collins, and Matt Hasselbeck throwing to him. While those are decent options, none of them are close to what Aaron Rodgers is. He can turn Britt into a star.

Mr. Thompson, trade for Britt. He is in a contract year, will not take up much salary cap, and will be out of your hair next year if it does not pay dividends.

    I ask you this, Are we a wr away from the Super Bowl? I don’t think so. Thus do you think giving away a pick for a guy that will be good for what maybe 6 games ( by the time he gets here and learns the playbook and even comes close to getting on the same page as Rodgers. I would do it if it was for maybe a 4th round or lower.

    • David Burdette

      I agree with a 4th pick or lower. I wouldn’t want him for higher than that. My thought is, the depth at receiver is so bad right now, that a practice squad receiver just isn’t going to cut it. We need someone who would have at least half a chance of doing something if thrust onto the field. More insurance than anything.

    We need something

  • Kelli Watts

    I think we definitely need something. I’ve seen some Pack fans pointing to Jordy Nelson and Finley to pick up the slack, but w/o the threat of Cobb and Jones other teams can just key on those two and disrupt the entire passing attack. I liked what I saw from Boykin, but one more receiver is really a necessity. Or an improvement on the line, just a suggestion.

    Kenny Britt reminds me of Koren Robinson, except KR learned from his mistakes while KB is still an idiot. No way TT brings him in.

    It’s cute you think Ted Thompson will EVER trade for ANYONE. It will never, ever, ever happen.

    White and Stoneburner to the 53. Already done.

    • David Burdette

      Oh I didn’t think he would. I thought he should though.

  • Phil Johnson

    Word on the street is Ted Thompson is talking to Terrell Owens
