3. Mason Crosby
It only feels like yesterday that Mason Crosby signed a new four-year contract with the Packers. But it comes to end following the 2019 season.
For the most part, Crosby has been at his consistent best since signing a new deal in the 2016 offseason. In the three seasons since, Crosby has converted 82.56 percent of his field goals, which is above his career average. However, his recent form is a little more concerning, with Crosby converting only 78.9 percent of his field goals in 2017, then missing seven attempts in 2018.
Four of those seven misses came in one uncharacteristically bad performance against the Detroit Lions.
However, even with Sam Ficken providing training camp competition this summer, my expectation is for Crosby to keep the job and perform at a high level in 2019. Take one look at the Chicago Bears’ kicker situation and you’ll see just how difficult a task it can be. The Packers should stick with Crosby, who is more than talented enough to get back to his best this year.
By doing so, he’ll have a great chance to earn a new deal in Green Bay. Crosby is still just 34 years old, so should still have plenty more years ahead of him.
