3 team deal?

I propose a 3 team deal to solve 3 very interesting player situations. Those being Marshawn Lynch, A.J. Hawk, and Vincent Jackson.
The way I see it San Diego is awfully thin at linebacker right now with Stephen Cooper, and Shawn Merriman are both injured, and chances are adding another linebacker would help the trade of Merriman as well. Shipping Hawk to San Diego would open up a roster spot for who other than Marshawn Lynch a bigger bruising type back like Ryan Grant who was just placed on IR. Lynch will fill a very big need for a workhorse back on the Packers' roster with 5'10 216 Jackson having never been active for 16 games in a season missing 12 games the past 3 years. With starting fullback Korey Hall hurt that also leaves them with just 2nd year Quinn Johnson and tailback/fullback John Kuhn as the number 2 fullback and running back right now. With Lynch in Green Bay, A.J. Hawk in San Diego that leaves Jackson going to Buffalo to compliment Lee Evans and Steve Johnson and help out a very porous qb rotation. Another x-factor in this trade could be Merriman. He could also be added in the package going to Green Bay who doesn't really have an experienced 3-4 linebacker that offers a threat as a pass rush with 2 2nd year linebackers outside, on top of the fact starter Clay Mathews is hurt. In return the Packers could throw in a 4th round pick for the Chargers. These moves make sense for every coach and team involved.


Adding more fuel to the fire for all of these teams....first of all in Green Bay we've watched starter Brandon Jackson average less than 4 yards per carry on 29 carries he has just 92 yards in 2 games. John Kuhn a guy who has been a back-up fullback for years now steps in as the number two back and has run so far 11 times for 51 yards and a td 4.6 yards per carry. It's obvious that bigger backs tend to have more success in Green Bays offense Grant is over 6 foot around 230 pounds, Kuhn is even bigger at 250. Lynch fits the one cut and go running style they have. I think the offense suits him better with the Packers than with the Bills.

3 team deal?

Green Bay has been looking to trade Hawk since training camp ended...Not to mention Lynch offers a young, talented, tough running back who runs the same style as Ryan Grant. Grant broke his ankle..an issue many running backs have found it difficult to come back from. Brandon Jackson has a pretty extensive injury history and besides 2008 hasn't averaged more than 3.6 yards per carry. He adds a threat as a receiver but adding Lynch would bring someone in who could start longterm if needed, or could offer as future trade bait if he has a solid season this year after Grant heals, like i said throwing in Merriman would likely make the deal much more attractive to all parties involved but it's a stretch to say the Chargers will deal both players in one trade. The attractive fact on this for the Packers would be adding a guy who is down n out but no neccessarily untalented he has just had off the field issues.

I don't see how Jackson in Buffalo couldn't happen? He would bring more excitement to their team something Buffalo desperately needs not to mention they're lacking a solid receiver next to Lee Evans no one is going to get scared over Steve Johnson and Lee Evans, but when you see Jackson, and Evans opposite of each other you see two deep threats, with good speed, and good hands. If the Bills are relying on 3 unproven qbs, and a ton of unproven receievers behind Evans on top of the fact that they have absolutely no tight end help they are expecting to lose a ton of games. These qbs can't succeed without weapons.

3 team deal?

GB would NEVER trade AJ Hawk for a fill in RB... especially Marshawn Lynch.

Sounds good.  The only problem I can foresee?  Vincent Jackson in Buffalo.
