1. DT Grady Jarrett, Atlanta Falcons
If Grady Jarrett hits free agency, he should have interest from just about every team in the league. We have to assume the Atlanta Falcons will do all they can to keep Jarrett long-term after using the franchise tag this past offseason. But if they’re unable to agree a long-term deal, it’s possible they won’t be able to do the same again in 2020.
For the Packers, Jarrett would be a great addition to the defensive line, which would be all the more important if Mike Daniels departs. Daniels is also a free agent next offseason.
Also, Jarrett is one of the best at his position in the league. In 2018, Jarrett had six sacks, 16 quarterback hits and forced three fumbles, all career highs. He’ll also only be 27 years old when the 2020 season gets underway.
The Packers could lose Daniels next offseason, but by signing Jarrett they’d continue to have a dominant defensive line. And Jarrett and Kenny Clark could form the best defensive tackle duo in the league.
If Jarrett hits free agency, the Packers might not have the cap room to compete with other teams. But it would be great news if they could, as Jarrett could help Green Bay’s defense reach the next level.
