The Packers could try and trade for one of multiple Colts pass rushers

Green Bay could afford one more rotational pass rusher if the price was right. Rashan Gary and Preston Smith are the current starters, and the Packers should feel great about the two of them. The team even has a future starter in 2023 first-round pick Lukas Van Ness, so the depth at the top is strong.

But, giving this team a fourth, solid pass rusher could do wonders for the Packers if they are to make a playoff run yet again in 2024. Looking at one of the Indianapolis Colts' pass rushers is a realistic option, because that room has gotten very crowded.

The Colts were toward the top of the league in sacks last year, but didn't have a prolific, top-tier name to boot. As a team, they simply got to the quarterback. But, in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft, Indy went with UCLA's Laiatu Latu, giving them a potential upper-echelon type of player at the position.

Indianapolis still has Kwity Paye, Samson Ebukam, Tyquan Lewis, and Dayo Odeyingbo as capable rotational rushers. Maybe, the Colts try to move Lewis, who could have the higher return of the last two listed above. Pay and Ebukam aren't going anywhere, but Lewis could be afforded at the right price. Last year in playing 37 percent of snaps, Lewis finished with 4.0 sacks, a career-high nine tackles for loss and another career-high, 13 quarterback hits.
