The Arizona Cardinals finally made a major roster move that could benefit the Green Bay Packers big time this offseason. Head coach Matt LaFleur has said the Packers would consider bringing in a veteran pass catcher to complement their group of mostly rookies and sophomores. They could land a special talent coming from a team in rebuild.
