1. Jamaal Williams
This would be the most surprising move of the three mentioned. But after drafting AJ Dillon in the second round, Jamaal Williams‘ roster spot is anything but guaranteed. As he’s a free agent next offseason, the Packers could’ve decided already that they plan to move on.
Williams is a useful player to have on offense as he can play on all three downs. He can run between the tackles, he can block, and he can catch passes. Williams does everything well but he’s not a star player. He’s averaging just 3.9 yards per carry in his career, although he did have a career-best 4.3 YPC last season.
If Dillon hits the ground running in training camp and forms a strong partnership with Aaron Jones, the Packers could decide to move on from Williams, especially if second-year Dexter Williams takes a step forward in the summer.
According to Pro Football Reference, Williams’ offensive snap counts dropped to a career-low last season with Jones being given a featured role. The addition of Dillon will likely further reduce Williams’ role. With only a year left on his deal, the Packers could decide to move on. It would be a surprising move, but it’s a possibility.
