The Green Bay Packers have a few things on their to-do list to accomplish this offseason. Once they figure out the quarterback situation with Aaron Rodgers, they will move on to making upgrades to the skill positions.
On Tuesday, Packers GM Brian Gutekunst told reporters at the Combine that “all options are on the table” regarding QB Aaron Rodgers until they’re able to speak and discuss a potential return. “He’s a great player, but until we have those conversations, I think all options are on the table,” Gutekunst said, via Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com.
It’s time to believe in Robert Tonyan. The Packers tight end played last year on a one-year deal after tearing his ACL on Oct. 28, 2021. He was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list to start training camp and came off of it on Aug.
The Green Bay Packers bolstered their special teams and defense in the latter half of 2022 with the addition of another seasoned player. Eric Wilson, a sixth-year linebacker, was signed by Green Bay in October off the practice squad of New Orleans.
Jordan Love and Aaron Rodgers are going to be tied at the hip for the rest of time. Ironically, the same could have been said for Rodgers and his predecessor, Brett Favre, when the Green Bay Packers decided to move on from Favre in favor of Rodgers back in 2008.
The Green Bay Packers have 14 players who are scheduled to be unrestricted free agents this offseason, including backup safety Dallin Leavitt. Going in alphabetical order, our “Stay or Go” series will look at each of those players in advance of the official start of free agency on March 15.
Moving to the defensive side of the ball, the Green Bay Packers were heavily reliant on their secondary with how poorly their front seven performed. Ranking near the middle of the pack in total yards allowed and yards allowed per game, the struggles of their defense rest largely on their defensive line and linebackers.
