On Monday rumors that the Raiders and Packers have engaged in trade talks for tight end Darren Waller surfaced. Aaron Nagler of CheeseheadTV reported that Green Bay is targeting a veteran tight end, specifically Raiders tight end Darren Waller.
Nagler added that the two sides were hoping to get a deal done during this week's NFL draft.
From Cheesehead TV:
According to a pair of league sources, however, the Packers are targeting a veteran tight end. Specifically, Las Vegas Raiders tight end Darren Waller. The Packers and Raiders have engaged in talks regarding a trade of Waller with an eye toward a deal getting done during this week’s NFL draft.
Waller is also apparently the player the Packers were trying to pry away from the Raiders during the negotiations around the trade of Davante Adams, a move that was nixed when both sides were reminded that league rules prohibit players being part of compensation for a trade of a player on an unsigned franchise tag.
Someone asked Derek Carr about the trade rumors and the Raiders quarterback laughed them off. After laughing it off he said there was no chance Waller was being traded.
Lol no chance. https://t.co/vINVlgdSMj

Adding Davante Adams just to move Waller wouldn't make much sense. I suspect the Packers reached out about Waller's availability, were told he's not available, and that somehow became the two sides engaged in trade talks.
