Packers Trade Worthy to Patriots for Late Round Pick

The Packers, in a move that really needed to be made, have traded third-year DE Jerel Worthy to the Patriots for a potential late round pick, ESPN.com's Rob Demovsky reports. 

After being drafted 51st overall in 2012, Worthy hasn't done much for Green Bay, recording just 2 1/2 sacks in 14 games that season before suffering a severe knee injury in Week 17.

Since then, unfortunately, things haven't been too good for the 24-year-old, who ended up missing all of 2013 before appearing in just two contests last season. 

To make things even worse, the youngster also hasn't even practiced this summer, likely making this move an easy one for Green Bay, as it includes no risk and potentially high reward.

I thought he was a great draft choice in 2012, but he had trouble staying healthy and did little when he was on the field. It was nice to actually receive anything in trade for him. The Packers are in win-now mode and Worthy wasn't helping them.
