The Green Bay Packers, who were considered by some to be Super Bowl contenders when the season started, are now 3-4 and on a three-game losing streak.
They have dropped consecutive contests to the New York Giants, New York Jets and now the Washington Commanders, and perhaps their biggest problem is their offense.
On Sunday, Green Bay totaled just 194 yards of passing offense, and the offseason loss of superstar wide receiver Davante Adams is looking worse and worse over time.
The team could use an infusion of offense by bringing in a wideout who can make catches and plays, and one man who has been linked to it is Elijah Moore of the Jets.
Jets saying they don’t want to trade Elijah Moore, but they also have to say that to maintain any leverage.
That means two guys the Packers really liked in the pre-draft process — Moore and Chase Claypool — are potentially available.

A Potential Key On Offense
In his second season in the NFL, Moore hasn’t really blossomed yet.
As a rookie, he put up 538 yards and five touchdowns in 11 contests while posting a lackluster 12.5 yards per reception and a catch percentage of 55.8 percent.
In six games so far this season, he has 203 receiving yards and has yet to score a touchdown.
He has been upset over not getting enough touches this season and has requested a trade, and some of his antics have drawn criticism from people around the league.

With what has transpired for the Packers, they shouldn’t settle for an average or mediocre receiver who won’t really move the needle much, as they need plenty of help for an aging but still effective Aaron Rodgers.
Coming into Sunday’s game, none of their receivers had reached 300 yards through six contests, a mark that Adams can easily surpass in two games.
