The Green Bay Packers are in the hunt for a tight end.
According to reports, the Packers would like to use one of their mid-round picks on a tight end, but that could change. After learning that the San Francisco 49ers are engaging in talks with the New York Giants about tight end Evan Engram, the Packers could jump ship and try to lure him to Green Bay.
The trade makes sense after all.
After losing Jimmy Graham, more like letting him walk to the Chicago Bears, the Packers are in need of another weapon for quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
The 25-year old is 6-foot-3 and 240 pounds and a beast in the red zone.
Instead of drafting a tight end, the Packers should make a move for Engram, who only carries a $3.4 million cap hit.
The Giants would likely want at least a second-round pick, but would ask for a first-rounder to start negotiating. Engram is not worth a first-rounder. His best season was in 2017, when he finished with 64 receptions and 722 yards to go with six touchdowns.
However, injuries have kept him off the field in parts of the last two seasons, which makes a second-round pick more likely as a starting asking price. Most teams would say that his injury history depreciates his value, which could allow the Packers to trade a third and fifth round pick for his services.
The Giants have multiple holes on their team, so adding more draft picks would be crucial towards their future success.
