A former Packers DB likes a potential trade proposal with the Panthers
The Green Bay Packers will need another wide receiver before the season is done, and a trade proposal is likely soon. The Packers have several serious injuries at the position. With Christian Watson ruled out, the Packers elevated Juwann Winfree. That’s the third time Winfree has been elevated this season from the practice squad. This season, he has now reached his limit to be elevated from the practice squad. The Packers still have Sammy Watkins on injured reserve with a hamstring. It’s possible Watson will join him with the same injury.
There have been rumors floating the Packers intend to trade for a wide receiver this season. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers has talked about the team possibly adding Odell Beckham Jr. to the roster later in the season. So it’s well-known in Green Bay the Packers need help at the wide receiver position. Former Packers defensive back and NFL Hall Of Fame member Charles Woodson thinks the team should offer the Panthers a proposal for wide receiver Robie Anderson.

The Packers should see what the Panthers want
Following the Panthers’ firing of head coach Matt Rhule earlier this week, many trade rumors are hovering around Carolina. The Panthers appear to be headed toward a rebuild. They have several key pieces NFL teams will be interested in. Reports coming out this week indicate the Panthers are being stubborn with some potential trade options. But apparently, according to Adam Schefter, Anderson is a player the team wants to field trade proposals for.
Anderson’s stats don’t jump off the page as much as teammate D.J. Moore, but the veteran wide receiver did have over 1,000 yards receiving in 2020. Woodson, who had a fantastic career defending wide receivers, would know Anderson’s potential on this Packers team better than most. He seems to think Anderson would be a much better player with Rodgers than his quarterback carousel in Carolina.
It wouldn’t hurt for the Packers to make a few phone calls to see what the Panthers want for Anderson. And while they’re on the phone, they should inquire about Moore.
