After re-signing tight end Marcedes Lewis, the Green Bay Packers still have 11 free agents.
The new league year got underway on Wednesday, and the Green Bay Packers have some tough decisions to make.
After making four signings on Tuesday (which are yet to be announced officially by the team), general manager Brian Gutekunst will decide whether he wants to re-sign any of the team’s remaining free agents.
The Packers have brought back tight end Marcedes Lewis on a one-year deal, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. They tendered wide receiver Geronimo Allison, as Rob Demovsky of ESPN reported. Demovsky also noted that they didn’t tender safety Kentrell Brice, which means he’s now a free agent.
Here’s a look at the Packers’ remaining free agents:
Packers free agents
- Byron Bell, OL
- Bashaud Breeland, CB
- Ibraheim Campbell, S
- Randall Cobb, WR
- Davon House, CB
- Lance Kendricks, TE
- Clay Matthews, OLB
- Eddie Pleasant, S
- Jake Ryan, LB
- Muhammad Wilkerson, DE
- Kentrell Brice, S
It’s hard to imagine Bashaud Breeland will remain a free agent for long. Teams are always looking to add more talent at cornerback, and Breeland is one of the best corners available. The hope is that Green Bay has interest in bringing him back and is able to make a deal.
Re-signing Muhammad Wilkerson to a one-year deal would also make sense.
But outside of Breeland and maybe Wilkerson, it’s possible Green Bay doesn’t re-sign anyone else.
It’ll be interesting to see whether Clay Matthews is signed by another team quickly. If not, there’s a chance the Packers could consider bringing him back to play inside linebacker. But that’ll likely depend on if there’s interest around the league.
According to Over The Cap, Green Bay has just over $15 million remaining in cap room following their recent signings, although that doesn’t include the Marcedes Lewis deal yet.
Who do you think the Packers should re-sign?
