S Sean Richardson
Sean Richardson has a history of neck injuries, and he suffered another worrying injury in 2015. After being placed on injured reserve in October, his future is in doubt. Not just with the Packers, but in the NFL.
Richardson underwent neck fusion surgery in 2012, a similar surgery Jermichael Finley and Nick Collins had, and those two were never cleared to play again. Richardson did return, but his most recent injury could be too risky. The Packers are usually cautious when it comes to player’s health, and it’s hard to see him returning.
T Don Barclay
Returning from a torn ACL in 2015, Don Barclay struggled right from the off. His issues were initially seen in preseason, and then again when called upon during the regular season.
Per Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Barclay allowed a team-high nine sacks and 33 pressures, also a team-high. All of this happened despite only playing 32.6 percent of offensive snaps. His time is likely up in Green Bay.
LS Brett Goode
Brett Goode didn’t do anything wrong this season; he was a reliable long snapper as he always has been. But in the win over Oakland, Goode tore his ACL but was somehow able to finish the game.
His recovery time could seriously affect his offseason, which means there’s a strong chance the Packers don’t bring him back.
