While the Green Bay Packers traded away a pair of players without getting an immediate return, general manager Brian Gutekunst says they're not giving up on the season.

Green Bay traded Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to Washington for a 2019 fourth-round pick and running back/kick returner Ty Montgomery to Baltimore for a conditional 2020 seventh-rounder.

"I don't necessarily think there's a message it sends to the locker room," the first-year GM said Wednesday. "I think the decisions that we make are always in the best interest of our team, not only in the short term, but the long term, as well. But I think our locker room knows where we're headed and, like I said, I think we're humming at the right time and I think there's a lot of positive things going forward."
