Packers: Three potential trade targets in 2019 season
2. Emmanuel Sanders, WR, Broncos
If the Packers are looking for short-term help at wide receiver, there might not be a better option than Emmanuel Sanders. Similarly to the Dolphins, the Broncos’ season is effectively over as they end the first quarter without a victory. Sanders is 32 years old and becomes a free agent in the offseason. There has to be the possibility of the Broncos trading Sanders for a draft pick.
For the Packers, they could get an immediate upgrade at wide receiver, and a player who could help them for this season. Marquez Valdes-Scantling has made some key plays this season and his development is important. Geronimo Allison, too, stepped up against the Philadelphia Eagles last week.
But with Equanimeous St. Brown out for the season, Jake Kumerow injured, Trevor Davis no longer on the team, and now star receiver Davante Adams dealing with a toe injury, bringing in a player like Sanders would make sense.
Despite coming off a significant injury last season, Sanders has been outstanding in 2019. After four games, Sanders has caught 23 passes for 298 yards and two touchdowns. He’s put up at least 86 yards in three games this season, and caught a touchdown in two. The only game he struggled in was matched up with Packers cornerback Jaire Alexander in Week 2.
A trio of Adams when healthy, Sanders and MVS would be up there with the best in the NFL in 2019.
