The Green Bay Packers have had a relatively “middle of the pack” defense so far in 2023. In fact, through the first seven weeks the Packers rank 16th in yards allowed per game (338). As the offense’s consistency continues to be an issue, more and more will be asked from the defense throughout the season.
Adding a playmaker or two could go a long way in solidifying what the defense can do for the rest of the season. As it turns out, theres one defensive playmaker that could drastically help what this defense does.
The Green Bay Packers And The Rest Of The League Receive Permission To Pursue Safety Justin Simmons
Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated annotated how the Broncos are shopping some of their star players:
After that’s done, I do think Denver will undergo a more thorough retooling, with Payton captaining all of it. Which is why the Broncos are going to listen to trade inquiries on Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton, Garett Bolles, Josey Jewell, Justin Simmons and even Patrick Surtain II over the next six days. The Broncos aren’t close, they need picks and it makes sense exploring getting more.
It’s also, to me, the smart thing to do, if you’re Payton, George Paton or Greg Penner, in charting a course out of this near-decade-long malaise for a very proud franchise.
Simmons earns $14.4 million this season based on his base salary, however. Due to his salary and age (30), he may be hard to move, but he is one of the best safeties in the league when he is on the field.
In addition, this trade would contradict the Packers’ unofficial “youth move” this off-season. The Packers (realistically) only make this type of trade if they feel they are in a “win-now” mode by October 31st.
