The Green Bay Packers entered the 2012 NFL season with high expectations after leading the league in wins last year, but the defense has struggled and the lack of a running game has gotten the team off to a slow start.
Cedric Benson was added in free agency, but the veteran running back’s injury has hurt the team’s running game and some help is needed for the second half of the season. The latest rumor from Bleacher Report could have the team fixing their problem by adding Steven Jackson of the St Louis Rams before the trade deadline.
St Louis just voided the last year of his contract, making the veteran a free agent at the end of the year. The Rams are the youngest team in the NFL and looking to add even more young talent and trading their superstar could be the answer.
Jackson would give the Packers a solid running back for a playoff push over the last half of the season and the Rams could move forward with their rebuilding, making this a good trade for both franchises.
