With the crushing season ending injury to Green Bay Packers starting running back, Ryan Grant, GM’s across the league are expecting the Packers to look into the availability of a few good running backs currently on different teams. And since the Buffalo Bills currently hold three starting running backs on their roster, one could be sure that they might be the first one’s to receive a call from Packer’s management.
When asked what he would say if the Packers ask Aaron Rogers about trading for the Bills Marshawn Lynch, his answer would be “Bring Him On”.
Green Bay – Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was asked Wednesday what he would say to the Packers if they asked for his opinion about a possible deal for disgruntled Bills running back Marshawn Lynch, Rodgers’ former Cal teammate.
“Bring him on,” Rodgers said, without hesitation.
Not even with his character knocks?
“He’s a great player,” Rodgers said of Lynch. “And any character issues the team might see, I think in a situation like that, and I think you’ve seen that with other players across the league, when you give a guy a change of scenery and a guy like that who feels he might have something to prove, and surround him with two guys, (Desmond) Bishop and myself who played with him…I think that can only help him feel comfortable and see a lot of production.”
Rodgers said the Packers have not asked him about Lynch, and that Rodgers and Lynch have not spoken.
Any deal appears to be a long shot. Silver reported Lynch might not even be on the block. And that before the draft, the Bills turned down an offer of a third-round pick and a player for Lynch.
Even a third-round pick would likely be too rich for Ted Thompson.
