“I’m just trying to take it day by day while I’m here,” said Green regarding the trade talk. “I’m trying not to look too far into the future.”
Green, the Packers’ leading rusher from a season ago, played with the team’s second and third units during Friday’s preseason opener against the Cardinals and managed to tally 16 yards on seven carries.
With both Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin having a roster spot secured, and HC Mike McCarthy said earlier this week that he still sees DuJuan Harris as their starting running back.
This means the Packers could actually begin to shop both Green and James Starks in the coming weeks.
One scout who spoke to McGinn mentioned that Green is likely to have more trade value at this point in time.
“Green has a little more value because he’s younger and has development potential,” one scout said. “Starks is a big back, but he is what he is.”
