What bargain free agents could the Green Bay Packers look at?
Ted Thompson’s hibernation is over.
The free agency frenzy is over, and left in rubble is a range of players available at bargain prices. This is the time the Green Bay Packers might finally spend some cash.
Letroy Guion was the Packers’ last example of a bargain buy on the open market, and Guion has since signed a three-year deal worth $11.05 million, replacing B.J. Raji. Guion’s initial one-year deal was risk-free as the team was able to part ways with him easily if it didn’t work out.
The New England Patriots are great this. They build their roster primarily through the draft, but patch some needs with cheap free agents. Doing so wouldn’t stop the Packers being a draft-and-develop team, it would simply complement the philosophy.
But that doesn’t mean the Packers should sign players for the sake of it. If there’s a player who would be an upgrade on what they already have and the position can’t be adequately filled in the draft, bargain free agency is worth using. Of the remaining free agents, here’s four names to consider.
