Best Packers’ offseason trade? You guessed it

Posted Feb 28, 2014

Top five offers impressive list of acquisition by trade

Here’s a list of the Packers’ best offseason trades involving the acquisition of a veteran player. The list includes only trades that were consummated between the last game of one season and the start of training camp of the next season.

1. Brett Favre from Atlanta for first-round draft pick (Feb. 11, 1992) – The player taken with the 17th overall choice – cornerback Kevin Smith – had a mediocre career and the Packers obtained arguably the greatest player in the franchise’s history.

2. Willie Davis from Cleveland for A.D. Williams (July 12, 1960) – The Packers got a Hall of Fame defensive end for a receiver who would play only two more years and catch only 14 more passes.

3. Ahman Green and fifth-round draft pick from Seattle for Fred Vinson and sixth-round pick (April 15, 2000) – Green became the Packers’ all-time leading rusher and the most explosive back in team history. Vinson never played for Seattle.

4. Carroll Dale from Los Angeles Rams for Dan Currie (April 13, 1965) – In Dale’s five years with the Rams, they never won more than five games. With the Lombardi Packers, he won three straight NFL championships and was the team’s most dangerous deep threat during that stretch, averaging 21.7 yards a catch and leading them in TD receptions. Currie was 30 years old and only a season removed from an All-Pro year when he was traded. Dave Robinson was 23 and waiting in the wings to replace him at outside linebacker. Currie would play only two more seasons.

5. Lynn Dickey from Houston Oilers for John Hadl, Ken Ellis, fourth- and third-round draft picks (April 2, 1976) – Injuries might have prevented Dickey from accomplishing even bigger and better things, but he was football smart, a respected leader and could spin a spiral with anybody. Hadl was already over the hill when the Packers acquired him two years earlier, and the Oilers traded Ellis after one game.
