WR Tyler Lockett, Seattle Seahawks

With their offensive struggles so far this season, the Packers should remain in the market for a wide receiver. Maybe that means going for a free agent like Odell Beckham Jr. when he’s healthy, but perhaps they would entertain a possible trade.

Green Bay doesn’t necessarily need to add another receiver. Randall Cobb is off to a great start, Allen Lazard is a reliable starter, while Romeo Doubs and Christian Watson have shown a ton of potential. Sammy Watkins will also be back at some point, which will help.

However, there’s little doubt a player like Tyler Lockett could help this offense. And considering the Seattle Seahawks will likely be out of contention in the near future, perhaps they would be willing to move on from the 30-year-old.

Three times an All-Pro, Lockett could help the Packers’ offense from Day 1.

Lockett has hit 1,000 yards receiving in each of the past three seasons and is well on his way again in 2022. In fact, he is on pace for a career-best 1,380 receiving yards, despite the Seahawks losing Russell Wilson this offseason.

Now imagine what he could do in an offense with Aaron Rodgers.

Lockett’s separation ability, speed, and experience could make him a star for the Packers. As the Seahawks enter a rebuild, perhaps they would consider listening to offers.
