As the 2023 NFL offseason continues forward, the Green Bay Packers are in a relatively standstill moment of time. All of the talks surrounding the Packers have to do with the expected trade of Aaron Rodgers heading to the New York Jets. In the meantime, there hasn’t been much else to talk about concerning the team.
Granted, the front office has made moves to re-sign pieces like Keisean Nixon, Justin Hollins, and others, but nothing much else has happened.
Brian Gutekunst and company knew that this would be a slow offseason coming into it. When Rodgers took his sweet time informing the team of his desire to be traded, the franchise understood that free agency likely would not be much of an option. One reason is that they still have to move Rodgers, but the other is that their money is relatively tied up.
All of that being said, the Packers could take a look at the trade market. There is one intriguing veteran wide receiver who has been tossed around as a potential target for Green Bay.
Could Allen Robinson Be A Trade Target For The Packers?
None of this is reporting that the Packers are actually interested in Robinson. Instead, this is more of speculation about a potential fit between the two parties.
Just a few short years ago in free agency, Green Bay pursued Robinson before he signed with the Chicago Bears. It’s hard to believe that all interest would be gone from the front office.
Kenneth Teape of NFL Analysis Network wrote an intriguing article about a potential Robinson to Green Bay trade. He quoted an article from Bleacher Report that suggested the Packers could snag Robinson from the Rams for a seventh-round pick. If that is indeed the asking price, a trade should be pursued.

What would the Packers be getting if they did trade for Robinson? Well, that’s a tough question to answer. He certainly doesn’t appear to be the legitimate No. 1 wideout that he was just a couple of years ago.
During the 2022 season with the Rams, Robinson ended up catching 33 passes for 339 yards and three touchdowns in just 10 games. It does need to be noted that Matthew Stafford did not play much due to injury. Back in 2021, Robinson racked up 38 receptions for 410 yards and a touchdown in 12 games played.
Quite honestly, this move would be underwhelming if only looking at the last two years. But, Jordan Love will need a trusted veteran to throw to in addition to his dynamic young wideouts, and Robinson would be a good fit. He isn’t a star anymore, but the Packers would not need him to be.
Expect to see Green Bay sniff around the veteran wide receiver market. Getting Love as many trustable weapons as they can should be a priority. Robinson may not end up being a target, but he would make some sense.
