The Green Bay Packers were unable to add any talent at the wide receiver position during the NFL Trade deadline earlier this week, but it wasn’t like they didn’t try.
Packers fans were fuming following the team’s lack of activity at the deadline, but they may be feeling more sympathetic this morning after reports emerged that Green Bay actually made serious runs at Las Vegas Raiders tight end Darren Waller and Carolina Panthers wideout D.J. Moore ahead of Tuesday’s deadline.
We already know that they made the Steelers the same offer for Chase Claypool as the Bears. But Pittsburgh chose to take the latter’s, believing Chicago’s second-rounder would be earlier than Green Bay’s.
Now, it’s being reported that Waller and Moore were also on the Packers’ radar, but they unfortunately struck out on both of those stars as well.
Sources say Green Bay made a strong run at Raiders star tight end Darren Waller , attempting to acquire the dynamic offensive weapon at the deadline. For Las Vegas, Waller was deemed too valuable to deal, especially because they just signed him to a three-year, $51 million extension on Sept. 10…
Unfortunately for Aaron Rodgers, he didn’t end up getting that playmaking help he so desperately needed.
It’ll be interesting to see how aggressive the Packers get in the Odell Beckham Jr. sweepstakes. Sitting at 3-5 going into today’s game against the Detroit Lions, the outcome of that contest could very well dictate Green Bay’s approach going forward.
