No. 4 team Deebo Samuel would love to be traded to: Green Bay Packers
Brace yourself, Faithful, because this one’s going to sting a bit.
After years of wondering if future Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers would ever find his way to San Francisco, out the door goes Deebo Samuel to join him in Green Bay with the Packers.
Not long after Rodgers put pen to paper this offseason with a new deal, his favorite, and most reliable target, Davante Adams, packed his bags and headed for the Las Vegas Raiders in one of those lucrative offseason wide receiver trades. It can’t feel good to see all those yards and targets wave goodbye, but if you’re the Packers, you’d have to rebound rather quickly.
Granted, the Packers have less in cap space than Samuel desires, but with $24 million in dead coming off next year, there’s no reason the Packers can’t make this deal happen.
This pairing would be bad news for everyone wearing the Niners logo, but for Rodgers and Samuel, it would a match made in football heaven. Despite the recent signing of receiver Sammy Watkins, Samuel would be the uncontested No. 1 the moment he entered Lambeau Field, and Rodgers could continue his reign as a productive Green Bay legend.
Will this happen? Who knows.
Can this happen? If there’s one thing that football has taught us, it’s that anything is a possibility.
