The Green Bay Packers had fans buzzing all day today about a report that surfaced regarding another massive trade. Of course, the off-season began with the Packers sending Aaron Rodgers to the New York Jets for substantial draft capital. They were reportedly on the brink of another massive trade, however, it didn’t come to fruition.
Green Bay Packers Pull Out Of Jonathan Taylor Sweepstakes
According to an article written by Stephen Holder of ESPN:
“The Green Bay Packers also were in talks with the Colts and had legitimate interest in trading for the star running back, sources told ESPN.
“Indianapolis moved forward after its self-imposed deadline of Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET came and went without receiving what the team deemed an acceptable offer for Taylor, who requested a trade last month and was authorized by the Colts last week to seek out a trade partner.
“But the Packers emerging as a contender remains relevant because Taylor can still be traded, even though he is on the reserve-physically unable to perform list and therefore must miss at least the first four games of the regular season.”
Packers’ General Manager Brian Gutekunst was asked about the potential trade today, this was his response:
“First of all, I can’t talk about players on other teams,” he said. “We try to be in every conversation. Anytime we have good players available to us, we’d like to make the Green Bay Packers better, and we’ll look at those opportunities. That’s all I’ve got to say about that.”

GB likely (65%) the draft capital to go “big-game hunting”. Jones is nearing 30 and Dillon is on final year of his rookie contract.
Get JT behind that OL, and life gets a lot easier for Jordan Love.
Interesting to say the least. https://t.co/o6VWGFUx8h
