What do the Packers need at the trade deadline?

The Green Bay Packers are contenders this season but as we’ve seen twice in the past three weeks, they still have a lot of work to do.

That could involve making a move or two before the trade deadline on Tuesday.

The Packers in a good position at 5-2, which puts them in first place of the NFC North. But we’ve now seen a couple of concerning performances in the past few weeks against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Minnesota Vikings. Up next is another big challenge against the San Francisco 49ers.

With the deadline closing in, here’s everything you need to do including when it is, as well as areas of need and potential targets for the Packers.

When is the trade deadline?

The trade deadline is on Tuesday, Nov. 3 at 3 p.m. CT.

Should the Packers look to buy or sell?

The Packers should be buyers at the deadline.

The Packers are in contention but could do with some help on both sides of the ball. While it’s unlikely they’ll make more than one move, they should take any opportunity they can get to upgrade at an area of need.

With that in mind, let’s take a deeper dive into the Packers’ areas of need, where they could strengthen, and potential targets ahead of the deadline.
