Which five former Packers could come out of retirement and still play at a high level?
There are still holes to fill on the Green Bay Packers roster. Which five stars could come out of retirement and give the Packers a boost?
It’s always fun to play the hypothetical game. “If this star from this era was around today how great would the team be?”
Imagining Reggie White team up with Za’Darius Smith on a sack would make any fan go nuts. Or imagine Aaron Rodgers having Keith Jackson or Mark Chmura to go with his 2014 receiving squad. A dynamic tight end would have been the thing to put that team over the edge.
While it’s fun to think of those different eras teaming up, there are some recently retired players who could still help.
Sometimes it’s an injury that takes a player away from the game too early. Other times it’s ineffectiveness. Then there’s the cold hard business of the NFL that makes a player leave before they are ready.
Either way, there are times when a player still has some juice they could give a team.
The recent return of Rob Gronkowski got me thinking, what players could come back and help this team this year?
Here are the five players I think could come out of retirement and help the Pack.
