Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel floated the idea that the Green Bay Packers would be smart to trade Greg Jennings a few weeks ago:
If the Packers are as convinced as I am that this is Greg Jennings' final season in Green Bay, Ted Thompson should do all he can to attract fair market value and move him before the Oct. 30 trading deadline.
Jennings is in the last year of his contract. Although he's been plagued by a rash of injuries lately, he's still one of the league's premier wide receivers when healthy. Right now, Jennings is out with a lingering groin injury, and the Packers clearly have missed his presence in the starting lineup.
That said, the Packers have weapons in James Jones, Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson. And being that Jennings isn't likely to be back in 2013, it would be in the team's best interest to get something for him now.
Jennings won't be out for much longer, and the St. Louis Rams don't have anyone to throw out on the field for Sam Bradford that would even make another NFL team at this point. The Rams are 3-2 right now and in the hunt for the NFC West crown with the San Francisco 49ers, Arizona Cardinals and Seattle Seahawks, all of which are going strong.
Bradford needs weapons now to stay competitive with these teams, and the have an abundance of draft picks with which to work with from their trade with the Washington Redskins last spring.
This is purely speculative on my part, but the Rams need to make a deal for Jennings before the trade deadline.
