4. De'Vondre Campbell

Inside linebacker De'Vondre Campbell is only two seasons removed from earning first-team All-Pro honors. He can help just about any defense in the NFL. Campbell has missed the previous two games due to injury, but the Packers hope he can return against the Denver Broncos after the bye.

With Campbell out, second-year Quay Walker has stepped up and made a significant impact on defense.

Walker's 51 tackles rank seventh in the NFL through five weeks, and he has also made three tackles for loss, one quarterback hit, two pass defenses, and a pick-six.

Walker has proved he is ready to lead the way in the middle of the Packers' defense. While it's great to have Walker and Campbell playing together, Green Bay should entertain offers for the former All-Pro. Again, the Packers aren't a team in contention this year. Their focus is on the upcoming seasons.

Campbell is 30 years old and may not be part of the Packers' plans a year or two down the line, whereas Walker will be a key starter.

The Packers would be making a move for the future by trading Campbell. They would add 2024 draft capital and make a cap saving. Campbell can help a lot of teams, but the rebuilding Packers should listen to offers.
