The NFL trade deadline has been moved back to Thursday, November 1 out of deference to the hurricane hammering the East Coast, so there is still time left if it turns out that the Green Bay Packers want to negotiate with another team to help shore up some positions where they have worn thin.
It’s no secret that Ted Thompson has a tendency to build his team organically through the draft and by grooming undrafted free agents rather than participating in blockbuster free-agent signings or showy last-minute trades. That system has worked well for him, peppered as it has been with occasional free-agency pickups that are rarely flashy but which are almost always of great utility.
That being said, there are a couple of key positions at which the Pack have been worn thin by injury and which could potentially be addressed by a timely trade right now.
This is also a chance for Ted Thompson to look to the future. He has the opportunity now to secure additional draft picks in exchange for players whose contracts he does not intend to renew in the offseason.
Bearing in mind that it is highly unlikely that the Packers will make any movement at all before the NFL trade deadline even with the extra time, keep reading for some players that the Pack should consider either bringing in or trading away.
