Trade scenario I: Packers
We know for a fact that the Green Bay Packers are playing with one hand tied behind their back due to recent positive testing of their wide receivers. A player like DeSean Jackson would be a huge boost to their offense. The Rams could trade Jackson straight up for Thursday Night Football’s hero, defensive back Rasul Douglas. The move would actually free up some cap space for the Rams, to boot.
Even when fully loaded, imagine anyone trying to defend against a receiver corps that includes Davante Adams, Randall Cobb, Allen Lazard, and then DeSean Jackson? To help the Packers secondary, the Rams throw in defensive back David Long Jr.
In the meantime, the Rams would love to add a capable and versatile defensive back to their secondary. Rasul Douglas is an ideal fit for the LA Rams. He is an ideal size for the Rams, as he stands 6-foot-2 and weighs 209 pounds. As we had pointed out in our NFL Trade Deadline article, Douglas may move around a lot, but he is very effective at denying receivers of the football.
His career completion rate is just 63 percent. He has six career interceptions, including the game-winner against the previously undefeated Arizona Cardinals. In return, the Packers would welcome adding a defensive back. David Long Jr. would be an immediate candidate to swap into the Packers’ defense, while their offense would become one of the most dangerous scoring offenses in the NFL.
