The Green Bay Packers have been the center of some pretty massive trades over the last two off-seasons. Of course, Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams have highlighted those trades. There have been a few names over the last few seasons that the Packers have been “in” on, but were never able to actually pull off.
One of those players is a wide receiver for the Las Vegas Raiders (no, not Davante).
Former Green Bay Packers Trade Target Says He’s Likely Playing His Last Game With The Las Vegas Raiders
According to Vincent Bonsignore of the
Veteran wide receiver Hunter Renfrow wrapped up what was almost surely his third-to-last practice with the Raiders on Wednesday.
He is pondering what his future holds as he prepares to play his final game Sunday with the only professional football team he’s ever known.
“I definitely think a lot about it,” Renfrow said before reciting a favorite quote of his former coach Rich Bisaccia.
“You spend 95 percent of the time in a microscope and 5 percent in a telescope,” Renfrow said.
Through that long lens, it’s impossible not to see beyond the Raiders to another opportunity with another NFL team next season.
The fact is, the business side of professional sports comes calling for everyone at some point, and in Renfrow’s case, the non-guaranteed $11.8 million he is on the books for next season pretty much dictates the Raiders will part ways with him during the offseason.
“I’m very aware of my contract and what will probably happen at the end of the year,” Renfrow said.
The Packers Have Been Linked To Renfrow In The Past
There have been multiple reports in the past that have indicated the Packers should target Renfrow via trade.
To some extent, a trade for Renfrow wouldn’t make sense. It would defeat the purpose of allowing rookies and second-year pass catchers to learn through getting as many reps as possible if a veteran wide receiver were added.
In contrast, there is no position asin team sports as team may feel the need to give Jordan Love as many weapons as possible to
In 2021, Renfrow caught 103 passes for 1,038 yards and nine touchdowns. He was named to the Pro Bowl that season andto be a player on the rise.
His targets were cut down by injuries and the Raiders’ trade for former Packers’ wide receiver Davante Adams. Now, though healthy, Renfrow stil has seen minimal targets come his way this year. The Raiders are certainly not using him, and the Packers wide receivers could use a veteran leader.
If the Packers were able to pick him up for cheap, it could work.
