The Green Bay Packers’ 2022 season has been a wild one to follow. A promising 3-1 start quickly turned into a 4-8 record. Now, with two games remaining in the regular season, the Packers sit at 7-8 and are within striking distance of the final playoff spot. Regardless of whether Green Bay makes the playoffs or not, Aaron Rodgers could use a few offensive weapons to optimize his final years with the Packers. One of Rodgers’ former teammates suggested a huge trade that seems rather unrealistic.
Former Packers Player Mark Tauscher goneSuggests Wild Trade
Currently, Green Bay has promising rookie receivers in Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs. Watson has been on fire during the second half of the season, scoring seven touchdowns, which is tied for first among rookie receivers. Doubs, when active, has shown that he was worth the fourth-round selection.
However, Rodgers’ former teammate Mark Tauscher proposed an ambitious trade involving the Las Vegas Raiders.
“Unless Tom Brady decides to go to Las Vegas and play there, why can’t GB undo the Davante trade and bring him and Waller to GB? Vegas will be in full rebuild mode and GB has a lot of assets to trade with. GB has gone after Waller hard twice already, 3rd time might be the charm.”

Reasoning For Packers-Raiders Trade Suggestion
This suggestion comes after the Raiders announced the benching of quarterback Derek Carr. A big reason why Davnate Adams signed with Las Vegas was for a more stable future at quarterback. With the uncertainty of how long Rodgers would remain in Green Bay, Adams left. Carr and Adams are also close friends from back in their Fresno State days. Now it seems like Adams may be regretting his decision.
It’s true that the Packers also tried to trade for Darren Waller multiple times this year. According to reports, the Packers wanted to include Waller in the Adams trade earlier this year, but couldn’t reach an agreement. Once again, before the trade deadline this season, Green Bay made another run at Waller, however, nothing ever materialized.
Waller and Adams being members of the Green Bay Packers next season is highly unlikely. It’s more likely that the Packers try to improve their team through mid-tier free agents that they can actually afford in the offseason. I’m sure Aaron Rodgers would appreciate Waller and Adams, but this blockbuster trade with the Raiders is a long shot.
