Rumors of the Green Bay Packers’ demise on Sunday at the LA Coliseum were premature. Following a big red-zone stop by the Green Bay defense that held the Los Angeles Rams to a field goal Womens Kenny Clark Jersey , the Packers got a huge response from their long-dormant offense.Aaron Rodgers threw his first touchdown pass of the day, finding rookie Marquez Valdes-Scantling for a 40-yard touchdown up the right sideline. MVS beat cornerback Troy Hill on a gorgeous move off the line of scrimmage and got an easy couple yards of separation, as Rodgers floated a picture-perfect pass to the rookie for a touchdown.That gave the Packers a 27-26 lead after Mason Crosby hit the point-after. A big stop on the Rams’ ensuing offensive series has the Rams punting the ball back to the Packers, who will take over with just under seven minutes left in the game.MVS now has two catches for 45 yards and a score, while Rodgers is 18-for-29 for 286 yards and one touchdown. The NFL trade deadline is just two days away, and while most teams used to shy away from in-season deals Authentic Clay Matthews Jersey , the last few years have actually been quite active.It’s possible the Packers will get in on the action as, according to Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer, the team could be shopping starting free safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.There are a lot of reasons this would make sense, as Clinton-Dix is in a contract year and they may seek to get value for him rather than re-sign him, or potentially lose him on the free agent market.Clinton-Dix is a controversial player, and that makes him a potentially lucrative trade chip. The scouting website Pro Football Focus thinks the world of him Womens Muhammad Wilkerson Jersey , and has him graded as the second best safety in the league so far.It’s entirely possible that a few teams agree with this assessment, and it’s possible they would pay a pretty penny for his services. That said, there are many analysts, myself included, who believe he is one of the league’s most overrated players, fattening up on tipped Authentic Aaron Rodgers Jersey , or severely overthrown interceptions, but in reality playing an extremely tentative game that leaves the Packers’ defense playing 10-on-11. The biggest issue with a potential trade is simply that the Packers have no depth at safety. Jermaine Whitehead and Raven Greene are unproven, and the Packer strong safeties lack the flexibility to move to free safety in a pinch. Some have suggested Tramon Williams can join the safety brigade with Breshaud Breeland now healthy, but this idea is pretty speculative. For all of his faults, Clinton-Dix at least knows where to stand. In a vacuum, it would make more sense for the Packers to acquire a safety Authentic Josh Jackson Jersey , not trade one away, but Clinton-Dix is a special case in a contract year. We don’t know how active Gutekunst may be at the deadline, but dealing away HHCD would be a major splash.
