Green Bay has one of the best offenses in the NFL, but the Packers are lacking a quality running back since Cedric Benson went down with an injury and the front office could make a deal before the trade deadline to give quarterback Aaron Rodgers another weapon.
The latest rumor from Bleacher Report suggests that Green Bay looks into acquiring LeGarrette Blount from Tampa Bay. Blount lost his starting job to rookie Doug Martin, but the 25 year-old has the power and passing catching skills to fit in with the Packers offensive schemes.
Blount gained over 900 total yards in his first two seasons in the league and averaged 4.5 yards per carry during that time, but his recent demotion has cut his numbers down and a change of scenery could help him and the Packers in the second half of the 2012 NFL season.
Green Bay will struggle to pass the ball when the weather gets bad this winter and will need a big back to help carry the load and dealing for Blount now could make a big difference when winter hits and it would probably only cost the team a mid-round draft pick, something they can truly afford to give the running game a boost.
