On Monday, a rumor surfaced regarding a potential trade of the Las Vegas Raiders’ star Darren Waller to the Green Bay Packers. Is there any truth to these trade rumors?
The off-season in the NFL is often a time where speculation runs rampant, and rumors of players’ futures spiral out of control. Through recent years, this is a scene Raider Nation has especially grown accustomed to, dealing with the yearly Derek Carr trade stories. The Raiders find themselves victim to this trend again, but this time, it’s star tight end, Darren Waller.
Yesterday, a report blew up surrounding Darren Waller and a potential trade to the Green Bay Packers. While the base of this report may be true, being Green Bay is interested in the ’20 Pro Bowler, the aftermath has led down a delusionary path.
Are the Raiders and Packers actively working on a deal for Waller?
Soon after catching wind of the potential development, quarterback Derek Carr stepped in, tweeting his side of the story.
That’s one way to shut a rumor down.
How did a report of a team being fond of a Pro Bowler develop into a story where a trade is actively being worked out? Let’s dive into this.
