Ranking the Green Bay Packers’ top remaining needs after making four signings in free agency.
Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst has wasted little time adding talent to the roster in free agency. But what are the team’s biggest needs following the recent signings?
On Thursday, the Packers officially announced the signings of edge rushers Za’Darius Smith and Preston Smith, safety Adrian Amos, and offensive lineman Billy Turner. All four players are at positions of need and will help take the pressure off when the draft begins next month.
According to Over The Cap, the Packers still have little over $15 million remaining. Some of that will go on the draft class, but Gutekunst still has enough money to make a couple of signings in free agency.
Whether the Packers plan to bring in more talent in free agency or turn their focus entirely to the draft, there is still plenty of work to do on this roster.
At the beginning of the offseason, the team’s biggest needs were at edge rusher, safety, offensive line, and tight end. How much has that changed after the signings made this week?
Let’s take a look at each position on the roster, ranking them in order of priority for the rest of the offseason following the start of free agency.
