The New York Giants are reportedly trading linebacker B.J. Goodson to the Green Bay Packers for a fourth-round pick on Monday.
Goodson had 61 tackles, two interceptions, and four pass deflections last season. For his NFL career including 20 starts, he has 123 tackles, three forced fumbles, and two interceptions.
The Giants selected him in the fourth round (#109 overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft.
He logged 911 snaps in an All-ACC senior campaign where he led Clemson with 160 tackles (14 for loss).
At Lamar high school, Goodson had 156 tackles as a senior and registered 96 tackles and six tackles for loss and added 16 receptions for 220 yards and two touchdowns as a junior.
Packers acquiring BJ Goodson is a low key impactful move. He's solid and the Packers have a void at ILB with Burks hurt. This is an improved, young D with upside, so filling voids like this is key. Like it.— Mike Clay (@MikeClayNFL) September 2, 2019
Another key for BJ Goodson - he played almost 40% of the Giants special teams snaps from a season ago. Something that will be very important for him in GB.— Andy Herman (@AndyHermanNFL) September 2, 2019
