Ten free agents the Packers should consider signing this summer.
With limited practice time and no offseason program ahead of training camp, every team will need to be able to rely on veteran players with NFL experience this season. For the Green Bay Packers, they should consider adding to the roster ahead of their first training camp practice, which is set for next Saturday, according to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky.
The adjustment from college to the NFL is never an easy one for rookies, but it’s been made all the more challenging due to the coronavirus pandemic. Expectations should be lowered for rookies, both for the Packers and every team around the league. The Packers already have great leadership on the roster and a lot of experienced players, but they could still look to add talent to the roster ahead of the new season.
There are some challenges to signing free agents. First of all, there’s the salary cap. There is expected to be a reduced salary cap in 2021, and as a result, teams may opt to roll over as much cap room as possible into next year. Then there is the fact rosters need to be reduced to 80 players at training camp rather than 90, giving them less flexibility.
But there are moves to be made. Here are 10 free agents the Packers should consider signing ahead of the 2020 season.
