The Green Bay Packers are a contender entering the 2022 season, but here are three of their worst moves of the offseason.
The Green Bay Packers had the best record in the NFL last season, but the end result was not what they wanted or what anyone envisioned — being held to 10 points and getting eliminated by the San Francisco 49ers in the Divisional Round.
Green Bay had an eventful offseason, highlighted by quarterback Aaron Rodgers signing a three-year contract extension. The Packers are expected to contend for the Super Bowl in 2022, especially with how the NFC is compared to the stacked AFC.
But, there could be three moves that could come back to haunt them.
Packers: Worst offseason moves so far
3. Trading Davante Adams
Getting Rodgers to re-sign was a huge win for Green Bay, but they also had another star player that was seeking a new contract, and that was wide receiver Davante Adams. The updates were far from promising. But surely, a team such as Green Bay would find a way to get something done with Adams to keep him with the team long-term.
That did not happen.
On March 18, news broke that the Packers had traded Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders in exchange for a first and second-round draft pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. It was then reported that the Raiders had agreed to terms on a five-year, $140 million contract extension.
Yes, the contract was a huge one, but the Packers may regret moving on from one of the top receivers in the NFL.
