Richard Rodgers: Walk

Richard Rodgers hasn’t lived up to his third-round selection, and he’s coming off his worst season yet statistically.

Rodgers doesn’t have the speed or route-running ability to become a consistent threat in the middle of the field. His best work came in the red zone: Rodgers has 13 touchdowns to his name since his rookie season in 2014.

But the 6-foot-4, 257-pound tight end hasn’t become a regular contributor. He was brought in to help fill the void left by Jermichael Finley, but tight end still remains a weak spot on the Packers’ roster.

Rodgers posted just 160 receiving yards and one touchdown in 2017. Even when Martellus Bennett departed in midseason, Rodgers remained quiet. In four seasons, he’s tallied 1,166 yards.

No matter where he ends up in 2018, Rodgers will always have a place in Packers history for his “Miracle in Motown” Hail Mary catch.

Brett Goode: Walk

Assuming Taybor Pepper is fully healthy, he’ll likely take back his job from Brett Goode. Goode was the Packers’ emergency option when Pepper got hurt, and he could take on that role again.

Along with Pepper, the Packers could add an undrafted free agent to provide some competition over the summer.
