Three veterans that might not make the Green Bay Packers’ 53-man roster.

Organized team activities and minicamp have come and gone. The offseason has truly hit a lull. The only things to talk about are optimistic predictions and past endeavors. Now is a better time than ever to reflect upon the offseason and preview the upcoming one.

Training camp will be here before we know it. Teams will begin to get a better idea of who has progressed over the summer and also the opposite, who has regressed. Typically, a regression only applies to the veterans. A regression can be due to multiple reasons. Aging and injuries are just a couple major examples. If a veteran regresses enough, their likelihood of being cut before the final rosters are announced September 1 only continues to rise.

Another reason that veterans might not make a final cut is the young talent behind them. Younger players tend to be on more affordable contracts and generally provide more upside than an aging veteran.

The Green Bay Packers roster will be no exception to this. For a team that deploys the “draft and develop” strategy, this concept is evident at times. General manager Brian Gutekunst has made a splash during his first few months at the helm, but it’s important to remember that he is still of the infamous Ron Wolf tutelage and personnel tree.

There are a few Packers veterans that could be on the chopping block. There are almost certainly going to be a few “surprise” cuts all over the league. Here are a just a few veteran Packers players that might not make the final cut.
