Antonio Brown and the Steelers went public with their intention to part ways yesterday after Brown met with Steelers’ President Art Rooney. Brown has probably turned some teams off with his erratic social media behavior and bridge burning approach to get his way, but Colin thinks the Packers should roll the dice and get Aaron Rodgers the best weapon of his career.
The Packers need more firepower, especially with the Bears now the team to beat in the NFC North, and it would be stupid for Green Bay to waste the final good years of a generational quarterback talent like Rodgers by penny pinching and surrounding him with sub par offensive talent. The fit for Brown also works because he gets another elite QB talent to get him the ball. As the Amari Cooper trade to Dallas already showed, a shotgun receiver/QB marriage can work and produce big-time results in today’s NFL.
With two first round picks, Green Bay has the assets to unload one and get it done. They should.
