The Green Bay Packers should take a look at these players, who have either already been cut, or potentially will be soon.
Every year in the offseason, teams make a litany of moves in the hopes of improving their rosters. Be it through adding players in the draft and free agency or cutting bait with guys who are either too expensive or ineffective, it is inevitable that we will see pages upon pages of movement across the league.
In terms of additions to their team, the Green Bay Packers usually sits out most of the free agency game, relying on an influx of new faces through the draft and undrafted free agency to build up their present and future roster.
When GM Ted Thompson does make a move in free agency however, it is usually on somebody that another team has released. This is due to multiple reasons, but the biggest factor tends to be that adding players that were cut doesn’t affect the process for compensatory draft picks — an area Green Bay has long relied on to reimburse the talent they allow to leave the team through free agency.
I’ll be looking at some of the players who have either already been released from their former teams or could conceivably have the possibility coming up in the near future that the Green Bay Packers should give some consideration to bringing onto the team.
We’ll start with a few players who have already been cut, then move onto those who could be seeing a pink slip soon.
