2. Trade for David Njoku

Another potential option the Packers have to strengthen the offense is to trade for Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku. Yes, Green Bay has used two third-round picks at the position on Jace Sternberger and Josiah Deguara in the past two years, but Njoku would be an upgrade on Robert Tonyan and would be the Packers’ best tight end.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Njoku has requested a trade before training camp. Schefter added that the Browns want to keep him. But if a trade is possible, the Packers should make an offer.

Njoku is a talented pass catcher and could be a breakout star in the Packers offense. He’s a former first-round pick and could make a real difference for this offense. He only played in four games last season due to injury, but put together a solid year in 2018 with 639 yards and four touchdowns. Njoku still has the potential to become a very good receiver, and the Packers offense would absolutely be improved if they traded for him.

With more two-tight end sets to be expected by the Packers this season, they could get Njoku and Sternberger on the field at the same time, or Njoku and Marcedes Lewis.

Either way, Njoku would be a great addition to the Packers offense.
