Rumors and reports have linked the Packers to Texans receiver Will Fuller, as the trade deadline approaches. After Sunday’s 28-22 loss to the Vikings, quarterback Aaron Rodgers was asked whether the team “need[s] to add to that position to be the offense you want to be long term?”

“It’s not a bad question, but it’s not one that I can answer,” Rodgers said. “We’ve had many conversations about this type of thing over the years. I surely understand my role. I’m not gonna stomp for anybody. The last time I stomped for a player, he ended up going to Buffalo.”

Rodgers apparently was referring to receiver Jake Kumerow, a surprise release by the Packers before the start of the 2020 season.

“I like the guys that we have,” Rodgers added. “We need more production, more consistency at times. But I like the guys we got.”

He may like the guys they’ve got, but plenty of Packers fans are uneasy about the status of the receiver position. The Packers have roughly 24 hours to address the situation in 2020 via trade.

  1. As a Packers fan they need a middle linebacker or anyone who can help stop the run over a wide receiver.

  2. Nope, he’ll just passive aggressively take shots at the front office about it.

  3. Wait all the Purple geniuses have been saying Aaron Rodgers runs the Packers. They aren’t doing that bit any longer?

  4. Why would he? The problem isn’t the offense. The second-best RB in the division is hurt. A very productive No.2 WR is hurt, and Rodgers has spread it around very well with who he has. That’s not the problem. The over-confident and under-performing defense is the problem. Fix that.

So yes they can trade for a mlb or defensive line help but at best it’s a slight improvement in defense where on offense adding a wr especially 1 with speed could have the affect of opening up the entire offense and and a chance to make it 1 of the best.
