The Green Bay Packers’ defense has been up and down so far in 2023. On one had they held the Bears and Saints to 20 and 18 points respectively. However, a massive fourth-quarter by the Atlanta Falcons coupled with the fact that a Desmond Ritter-led offense put up more than 450 yards, has some fans skeptical.
The Packers have been named in one trade with the Denver Broncos that could significantly help the defense going forward.
The Green Bay Packers Named In Trade With Denver Broncos That Involves Three-Time All-Pro Safety Justin Simmons
Sayre Bedinger of Fansided reported on how this trade could go down:
We’ve talked about it before, but the safety position is one of those areas on the Packers’ roster that could probably stand to be upgraded. And can you ever really have too many guys who can take the football away?
With the way the Packers’ defensive front is capable of taking over games, having studs on the back end who can capitalize and create turnovers is absolutely essential, and very few players have been better at creating turnovers the last 6-7 years than Justin Simmons.
Unfortunately for him, his stardom has been kept rather quiet because the Broncos haven’t been any good.
At some point, you have to wonder if the Broncos will “do right” by Justin Simmons and trade him to a team that is contending, and the Packers could definitely fit that bill in 2023. Simmons is currently out due to injury, but he’ll be back healthy at some point and the question will then be — how many more games will we see him play as a member of the Broncos?
He earned $14.4 million based on his base salary this season, but missed Week 3 because of a hip injury. Simmons could be hard to move given his salary and age (30), but he’s still one of the best safeties in the league when healthy.
This trade also would go against the apparent “youth move” the Packers decided to commit to this off-season. This type of trade feels like one the Packers only do if they feel like they are in a “win-now” mode by the October 31st trade deadline.
