Center is a concern for an otherwise excellent Green Bay Packers offensive line.

Repeated botched snaps from Josh Myers leave the Packers with serious question marks at the position ahead of the regular season. Green Bay has experimented with Zach Tom and Jon Runyan Jr. at center this summer, a sign the team doesn't have full confidence in Myers.

Help could come from an unlikely source.

Over in the Big Apple, Aaron Rodgers' New York Jets have a different issue along the offensive line. They need help at tackle but have strong depth at center.

Packers could get help at center from unlikely source

According to ESPN's Rich Cimini, Jets offensive lineman Trystan Colon could become available. Cimini reports that multiple teams have shown interest in trading for Colon.

This perhaps suggests Colon could be cut by the Jets if they are unable to trade him. They have other options at center and may not have room on the 53-man roster.

Colon can play at center and guard, so could provide much-needed depth for the Packers at multiple positions. He could compete with Myers for the starting job at center while also providing cover at guard, where the Packers could do with additional depth.

Maybe Green Bay can work out a trade with New York. The Packers have good depth at tackle, an area of need for Rodgers's Jets.

Yosh Nijman for Colon plus a draft pick? Who says no?

While this is a difficult time around the league, with teams having to move on from several players to get their roster to 53 players, it also creates opportunity. Many players released this week will find new homes in the coming days.

Colon is one of many players to watch. If he becomes available, the Packers should have interest.
