Should the Packers trade for Kenny Stills?

The Green Bay Packers need to do something at wide receiver. And, yes, this is being written in June, long after the conclusion of the 2020 NFL Draft.

The Packers have had plenty of opportunities to address their receiving corps. While Devin Funchess is a good signing to replace Geronimo Allison, more work needed to be done. And they had every chance to do so.

It’s not like this year’s receiver draft class was historically deep. Oh, it was? Oops.

But it’s not too late. The Packers can still upgrade their wide receiver corps, but the only option might now be via a trade.

CBS Sports names Kenny Stills a top trade target for Packers

Cody Benjamin of CBS Sports wrote about five trades that would make sense around the NFL this summer. One of them would see Kenny Stills head to Green Bay.

The Packers would also receive a 2021 seventh-round pick from the Houston Texans in exchange for a 2021 fourth-round pick. And Benjamin makes a strong case for why this trade would make sense for both teams.

For Green Bay, it should be a no-brainer. Giving up a future fourth-round pick for a wide receiver who can make an immediate difference in this offense would be great value. Stills could slot into the number two role and, along with Devin Funchess, would help strengthen a receiver corps that needed work.

The Texans have added talent at receiver by signing Randall Cobb and trading for Brandin Cooks. Along with Will Fuller and fifth-round pick Isaiah Coulter, the Texans have lots of talent at the position even after trading away superstar DeAndre Hopkins.

This move would give them a fourth-round pick and also free up cap room.

Who says no? I certainly don’t. Brian Gutekunst, pick up the phone.
