The Green Bay Packers have already secured a blockbuster deal this past offseason. Could another be on the way?
According to CheeseheadTV’s Aaron Nagler, the Packers could make another deal with the Las Vegas Raiders. The report suggests the Packers are interested in acquiring Raiders tight end Darren Waller.
In March, the Raiders acquired Davante Adams in a deal from the Packers. Green Bay received multiple draft picks as part of the deal.

Adams then signed a five-year, $141.25 million contract with the Raiders.
With Derek Carr and Adams signing extensions, the Raiders’ new front office could be handcuffed when signing Waller to an extension.
Nagler has been covering the team for a long time. However, that might just be a smokescreen right before the NFL Draft.
Waller, who turns 30 in September, has two years left on his contract. However, last season he had a season plagued by injuries.
He only played six games. In games he has appeared in, he has had 55 receptions for 665 yards and two touchdowns.
His numbers will definitely go down next season if he stays with the Raiders. Carr’s two main targets will be Adams and Hunter Renfrow.
Nagler also reported that Waller has already been mentioned in a potential deal for Adams. He reported that an untagged player could not be traded for a tagged player, which Adams was at the time.

Waller is expected to earn $6.25 million per season over the next two seasons. He is currently set to become a free agent at age 32 ahead of the 2024 season.
The Packers signed Sammy Watkins to a one-year deal this offseason. Still, the team still needs to add receivers because they need them.
The team should add receivers in the draft. But if the Packers can get this potential deal done, it could come at the expense of a draft pick or two. And that will help Aaron Rodgers when the new season begins in September.
