Who needs receivers? The Green Bay Packers! It now appears that a receiver they had been connected to via trade is indeed available. The Pittsburgh Steelers' Martavis Bryant is there for the taking if they want him.
The post Martavis Bryant Is Indeed Available appeared first on Total Packers.

We should make a serious offer to Martavis and/or Dez. I love Davante, but we don’t protect him. I would hate to see him miss significant time, but if he did, Ty Montgomery would be our #1.

I like Ty, but he’s not getting reps on the perimeter anymore. Dude is preparing his body and mind as a RB. A rookie would take two years to get ready.

If we were to take a chance trading for a guy with a problem staying clean I would go Josh Gordon as that guy is flat out awesome when on the field.

Yeah, I've never liked trading away draft picks, just for the right to give a guy a raise.... it's like being forced to pay twice, especially when you could just wait a year and pay once.

I loved the guy before his suspension, haven't seen him play since. I'd take him if he is the same player.

5th round pick, sure. More than that, no.

Maybe we will trade whatever we got from the Saints for moving down in the draft.

Shows what I know.

The Steelers have traded Bryant to the Raiders for the No. 79 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, Pittsburgh announced Thursday night.

I am curious how this works with Jordy Nelson.

They have Amari Cooper too. They can have Cooper and Bryant run deep and intermediate routes and have Nelson catch passes from the slot. Jared Cook is there too.

Carr has quite the arsenal.

I understand your point, but the recent trade is why a team would make a move like this. Otherwise, they may never have a shot at the player. There is always some team willing to crazy overspend in free agency, or a player may never consider a certain team or market when they are an unrestricted free agent. Now they secured a potentially very good WR without having to further compete with any team. As long as they expect to resign him, it could work out. Worse case scenario, they could tag him for a year.

I'm not saying I agree with this particular move, but there are obviously some benefits, especially if a team has a critical need and is ready to win now. Let's say if the Packers made this trade, and Bryant was a key cog in helping the Packers win another Super Bowl, it would have been well worth it, even if he departed the following year. A team could also get a decent compensatory pick in that scenario anyway, further minimizing the damage.

Hmm never have a shot at a disgruntled employee who got suspended for a year and then demanded to be traded because he couldn't get the ball as often as he wanted... Hmm

Also one case of being caught from another year long suspension... I think I'm alright with never having a shot at him.


Also Raiders are now trying to trade WR Seth Roberts

Also you have to worry about how they're going to handle the new playbook and environment.

Sounds like the Raiders are getting pretty frustrated that Martavis Bryant is struggling with the playbook, after trading a 3rd round pick for him. Meanwhile they seem to love Nelson.

Profootballtalk via James Jones said:
“I just had a chance to speak with Coach Olson and he said talent-wise, there’s probably nobody that can compete with [Bryant] talent-wise,” Jones said. “But they said he’s not picking up the playbook, and that’s the reason of a little frustration right now because they want to get him on the field but he’s not able to grasp the playbook yet.”

Jones said Bryant can’t move around the way receivers usually do because the Raiders are trying to simplify Bryant’s learning process by having him line up in the same place on every play.

“They’ve only got him lining up in one spot to try to slow it down and help him out,” Jones said. “They need him to pick it up.”

Jones’ comments echo those of Raiders head coach Jon Gruden, who said Bryant needs to play better and master the offense. The Raiders traded a third-round draft pick for Bryant, and so far he doesn’t seem to be performing the way they were expecting.
