As we move within three weeks of free agency, who should the Green Bay Packers re-sign to the roster?
And who should general manager Ted Thompson let walk?
On Monday, the window opened to designate the franchise and transition tags. Two weeks from now that window will be slammed shut, and the focus will switch solely to re-signing your own players to long-term deals and looking at available free agents from around the league.
Dan Dahlke looked at players Ted Thompson could try and bring to Green Bay to help build on an improving defense.
Here is a list of the Packers’ free agents this year:
- CB Tramon Williams, UFA
- NT B.J. Raji, UFA
- RT Bryan Bulaga, UFA
- CB Jarrett Bush, UFA
- FB John Kuhn, UFA
- QB Matt Flynn, UFA
- DT Letroy Guion, UFA
- WR Randall Cobb, UFA
- QB Scott Tolzien, UFA
- CB Davon House, UFA
- ILB Jamari Lattimore, UFA
- RB DuJuan Harris, ERFA
- S Sean Richardson, RFA
- RT Don Barclay, RFA
- WR Jarrett Boykin, RFA
The Packers are estimated to have around $23.72 million in cap space available, per Over The Cap, so Ted Thompson has some room to maneuver.
So, who should Thompson bring back?
Who should he let walk?
Next: Randall Cobb
