Here’s an early look at eight players who might not still be on the Green Bay Packers roster in the 2020 season.
After 11 games in the regular season, we’ve got a good idea of the strengths and weaknesses of the Green Bay Packers. We can also predict what the team’s biggest needs will be in the upcoming offseason, barring a dramatic change in the final stretch of the season.
And when looking at who has struggled this season, contract details, and the upcoming list of free agents, it’s possible to make predictions on which players will be back, and who might not still be on the roster a year from now.
According to Over The Cap, the Packers will have $26.87 million in cap room in 2020. That’s fine, and the Packers are hardly in any salary cap nightmare, but it’s also not a lot of money to work with when free agency rolls around. The Packers will want to work out a few long-term deals with players whose contracts are nearing an end, and GM Brian Gutekunst will likely also want to bring in talent from elsewhere if possible, as he did so well last offseason.
But the Packers will need to be willing to move on from players currently on the roster, either upcoming free agents, or players under contract in order to free up cap room.
