Five realistic trades the Packers could make at wide receiver.

There are always options to improve the roster. Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst knows that and has explored every available option in the past few years, whether that’s by picking up free agents after the draft, spending big in March, or making trades.

One of the biggest surprises of the offseason wasn’t just that the Packers traded up in the first round for quarterback Jordan Love, or used a second-round pick on running back AJ Dillon, but also that they didn’t use any of their picks on a wide receiver, considered a major position of need at the beginning of the offseason.

The Packers do have young talent at wide receiver and that will create competition once training camp gets underway. But what if some of the same problems from last year continue into 2020? What options would the Packers have to improve their roster at WR?

An easy answer would be to trade for Odell Beckham Jr. or another star player. But that’s not realistic. The Packers would need to give up a lot in order to pull off a deal for one of the best receivers in the league, and that’s before we even factor in the salary cap.

So, let’s look at five realistic trades Green Bay could make at wide receiver this year.
