The Green Bay Packers are unlikely to re-sign any of their remaining free agents.
It’s been a busy offseason for the Packers under new general manager Brian Gutekunst. While it’s possible they could still look to make another signing or two, it’s unlikely they bring back any of their remaining unrestricted free agents.
Brooks is the most likely to return. If head coach Mike McCarthy isn’t satisfied with the depth at outside linebacker during training camp, it’s possible the team gives Brooks a call. But he made just 1.5 sacks in 12 games last year and recently turned 34.
It appears the Packers have moved on from Evans at guard. The six-time Pro Bowler played well last season, but considering he turns 35 in August, it’s no surprise the Packers want to get younger at the position. Justin McCray could be the next in line for the job. Lucas Patrick will also be in the mix, as well as a rookie Cole Madison.
There’s almost no chance Goode is back for 2018, barring an injury. Green Bay used a seventh-round pick on long snapper Hunter Bradley.
Considering the team’s depth along the defensive line, it would likely take an injury for the Packers to re-sign Dial. Green Bay signed two-time All-Pro Muhammad Wilkerson earlier this offseason. He will be reunited with his former defensive coordinator Mike Pettine.
It’s still possible Gutekunst looks to add more names to the roster this summer. Brian Sampson of Dairyland Express listed 10 free agents still available that the Packers could consider signing. One of them was Dez Bryant; it’s quite incredible such a talented player remains unsigned.
The fact the team drafted 11 players may make it a little more difficult. But if Gutekunst does look to add another free agent, it’s unlikely to be Brooks, Evans, Goode or Dial.
