GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – The Packers approached Tuesday’s NFL trade deadline with a buyers mindset, but after the Buffalo Bills made an offer that was too good to pass up, Green Bay traded away one of the most veteran and outspoken leaders.
Green Bay Nation’s Ryan Wood and Marques Eversoll joined Lauren Helmbrecht to discuss the Rasul Douglas trade and what’s going wrong for a Packers team that’s “tough to watch” right now.
Without Douglas in the secondary room, a new defensive leader will have to emerge. Lauren, Ryan, and Marques discuss who will step up and assume that role and how Matt LaFleur’s team shapes up against Sean McVay and the Los Angeles Rams for this week nine meeting.
