Betts would not be a full time starter with Morency still here. This deal smells IMO, unless we get him for a steal.
Unless they were trading the 1st rounder for Betts, it's not really as simple as Betts vs. Lynch.
If GB could get Betts for a 3rd round pick, that would allow them to use their first rounder on maybe a safety or WR.
Betts + a first round safety would be better for the packers than Lynch plus a 2nd or 3rd round safety, at least in the short term.
