Sean Richardson: Resign

The decision to re-sign Sean Richardson means there is some depth behind Morgan Burnett and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix at safety. Micah Hyde can also rotate in at safety. Richardson was featured more often late in the 2014 season, but played most of his snaps on special teams, where he recorded a team-high 361 snaps.

Jamari Lattimore: Walk

At this stage, Lattimore re-signing would almost certainly be to add depth to the roster. It is possible that the Packers could cut either A.J. Hawk or Brad Jones – or even both. If both leave, it is possible Lattimore returns.

Ted Thompson may feel that with Sam Barrington, Carl Bradford and potential free agent or draft signings in the future, Lattimore is expendable.

Should he return, it won’t cost the Packers much.
