The Green Bay Packers are four games into a very important season for their franchise. While many don’t believe this Packers team (currently) is a Super Bowl caliber team, the Packers are looking for an answer that could mean more than just this years’ Super Bowl. If Jordan Love proves he can be their franchise quarterback, he could put the team in position to win the Super Bowl over the next 15-20 years.
That being said, if the Packers DO feel they turn into a Super Bowl caliber team either this year or next, they may want to position themselves to go after a huge offensive weapon.
The Green Bay Packers Land Star Running Back Derrick Henry In Massive Trade Proposal
Sayer Bedinger of Fansided highlighted this possibility:
We’ve discussed it before, but depending on where the Tennessee Titans are at here in a couple of weeks, it could be interesting to see what kind of fire sale they might have.
It’s hard to picture Derrick Henry playing for any other team at this point, but he’s obviously got some history with Packers head coach Matt LaFleur, having played for him when LaFleur was the offensive coordinator for the Titans.
That also just happened to be during Henry’s breakout year in the NFL. Maybe the Packers could send AJ Dillon to Tennessee in a trade for Henry and do some kind of swap there.
One way or another, I don’t hate the idea of the Packers finding a way to upgrade the RB position, whether that’s through a rather substantial trade like this or maybe something a little more modest.
Would The Packers Trade Running Back AJ Dillon?
Through the first four games of the season, it has been tough sledding for AJ Dillon. On 44 carries, Dillon has gained only 2.7 yards per rush, which is a disappointing performance. According to PFF, he has only run for more than 10 yards once and averages only 2.31 yards after contact. That ranks 41st out of 56 eligible running backs. Passing-wise, Dillon hasn’t made much of a difference.
Many fans were excited for Jones and Dillon possibly being one of the best running back duos in the NFL. Between injuries and sub standard play, the Packers rushing attack is almost nonexistent. A change of scenery could do AJ Dillon well. If the Titans agreed to one (possibly two) premium draft picks and AJ Dillon, the Packers could make a splash move.
Green Bay Has Committed To The “Youth Movement” This Past Off-Season
The Packers have a core offense of Jordan Love, Christian Watson, Romeo Doubs, Jayden Reed, Luke Musgrave, Tucker Kraft, Aaron Jones, and AJ Dillon. They have an average age of 23.8.
Trading for a 29-year-old Derrick Henry might not be in their immediate plans if they don’t believe they can “win now.” It took Aaron Rodgers three years to win the Super Bowl with the Packers once he got the starting job. We’re four games into Love’s first season.
