Three moves the Green Bay Packers should still consider in free agency.

It’s been difficult to keep up with the blockbuster signings and trades being made around the NFL over the past 24 hours or so, but there are still moves to be made for the Green Bay Packers.

The Packers have been busy with linebacker Christian Kirksey and tackle Rick Wagner inking deals. They have also brought back five exclusive rights free agents. Former Packers Blake Martinez and Jimmy Graham have signed elsewhere, with Graham remaining in the NFC North.

The Packers have patched a couple of needs although it’s hard to say they’ve improved the roster on the 2019 season so far. But GM Brian Gutekunst still has plenty of time to do that, and he’s been able to make some cap savings along the way.

The team isn’t loaded with cap room. According to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, they have around $14.7 million remaining after the moves they’ve made so far. But more room can be created should they restructure deals or release players, guard Lane Taylor being a cut candidate. Structures of any potential deals will also be important.

Potential Packers targets Austin Hooper and Cory Littleton have signed elsewhere, but there are still moves to be made. Here are three for Gutekunst to consider.
