Packers trading Trevor Davis to the Raiders

The Raiders are a little short of what they planned at receiver. Perhaps you heard about it.

They made a move to address the shortage Wednesday.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Packers are trading wide receiver Trevor Davis to the Raiders.

The 2016 fifth-rounder was down the depth chart with the Packers, but would have a clearer shot at the field with Oakland.

He’s a speed receiver, who fits the longstanding Raiders profile and coach Jon Gruden’s desire to take more shots downfield.

  1. I’m not sure why the Raiders traded for him as a receiver. He’s a very good kick/punt returner when healthy. However, he’s not much of a route runner unless they want someone who mostly runs posts and fly routes. Maybe Gruden and staff think they can coach him up as a WR.

  2. He never really lived up to his potential with the Packers, but mostly because it seemed like he was always injured. I really had high hopes for him coming out of Cal – if he can stay healthy, he should be a good receiver for the Raiders.

  3. He stinks. He can’t play WR at all and he is a so-so return man. I’d rather have a draft pick than him for sure.
    Packers fan.

    Dwayne Harris, the Raiders return man injured his ankle and isn’t practicing.

  5. I liked him – but he had a kind of deer in the headlights game fielding punts – did when he shouldnt ( took a big over it) and didnt do much when he had a chance. So good luck as he wasnt a good fit at receiver with all the other guys – but he was catching the punts and not dropping them.

  6. Harris injury must be worse than originally thought. Must be at the very least a high ankle sprain which is probably 8 weeks. There was no doubt Jalen Richard is not the guy you really want returning punts and kick offs…he struggled against the chiefs after Harris got hurt (again)

  7. Pack picked up Tremon Smith from the Chiefs. He’s a CB and he returned 33 kicks for about 900 yds last year.
    He doesn’t seem to get hurt much either.
    Sounds like a good replacement for Davis and he might help filling in for Greene.
    Sounds like a good move for GB.

  8. It looks like the Packers will collect a 6th round pick for Trevor Davis, better than what I expected.
    The Raiders get a slight, 4.3 speedster who could never make a dent in Green Bay’s receiving corps. despite a rather large vacuum at the position over the last couple of years.
    Solid return man and gunner, sure hands, decisive runs.
    He will definitely be a benefit to their special teams, and he’s a riot at airports.

    And for now it seems like the Packers will be content handing these duties over to newly acquired Tremon Smith.
    This may also indicate that Darrius Shepherd is nearing his return from injury as he’s been participating in practices again, albeit on a limited basis.

  9. I do like Trevor, but I see the potential for more return TD’s from Tre Smith. Trevor is a speedster and Tre is faster.

    If you look at the 2018 draft and the 40 times, a lot of the 4.3 guys are Packers.

    Jaire- 4.38

    Tony Brown- 4.35

    Tre Smith- 4.38

    MVS- 4.37
