1. Trade for a veteran wide receiver
Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs could be star players in Green Bay. But for an all-in team going for a Super Bowl, adding a top veteran receiver could make all the difference.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers look set for a rebuild following Tom Brady’s retirement. Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst should pick up the phone and ask about the possibility of trading for Mike Evans or Chris Godwin.
According to Over The Cap, Evans has a cap hit of $23.7 million in 2023. But it’s also the final year of his contract. The Packers could offer Evans a new long-term deal, structuring it to lower his cap hit in the short term.
In his nine-year career, Evans has 10,425 yards and 81 touchdowns. He has hit the 1,000-yard milestone every single season in the NFL. Evans is a four-time Pro Bowler and helped the Tampa Bay Buccaneers win the Super Bowl in the 2020 season.
With Brady gone and Tampa Bay set for a rebuild, Evans could join another Hall-of-Fame quarterback and compete for another Super Bowl.
A wide receiver trio of Mike Evans, Christian Watson, and Romeo Doubs? Good luck stopping them.
The Packers would possibly have to give up a top draft pick for Evans, and they’d also need to work out a long-term deal.
But for a team going all-in with Aaron Rodgers, this is the type of big move the Packers would need to make.
