The Green Bay Packers have one of the best rosters in the NFL, but a bold trade (or two) before the beginning of the 2024 season could solidify them as true contenders in the NFC.

General manager Brian Gutekunst has really done a great job of assembling this roster and setting up the Packers to compete in the tough NFC North from now on, but with his quarterback (Jordan Love) clearly in place, Gutekunst can start to feel free to trade future picks for immediate assets.

The Packers have done well enough in the NFL Draft and have made so many picks in recent years that it's possible the best use of their future draft capital will be on veterans who can upgrade the current roster.

Let's look at some players they could target in a trade before Week 1 of the 2024 season.

Green Bay Packers trade targets before Week 1 of 2024 season

1. Marshon Lattimore, CB, Saints

The one position group that could really be an Achilles heel for the Green Bay Packers this coming season is at cornerback. Needless to say, this will be a relatively cornerback-heavy list of potential trades to happen before Week 1, including the potential of a blockbuster like trading for Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore.

Lattimore has been the subject of trade rumors all throughout the offseason, and with a base salary of just over $1.2 million this season, the Saints have structured Lattimore's contract to be able to trade him if the opportunity arises.

The Packers would have to pay a premium here because of Lattimore's contract and age (just 28) but he could be the missing piece for this team.

2. James Bradberry, CB, Eagles

Quite frankly, James Bradberry's value has never been lower. The former Pro Bowl corner is coming off of an absolutely terrible season with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2023, and with the Eagles switching to defensive coordinator Vic Fangio in 2024, there may not be a more perfect time for Philly to try and get at least something for Bradberry while they still can.

The Eagles used their top two picks in the 2024 NFL Draft on Quinyon Mitchell and Cooper DeJean. Those young guys have got to play and Bradberry could be to the Packers in 2024 what Rasul Douglas was to the Bills in 2023.
