Damon Harrison, DL

Green Bay’s lack of offseason additions along the defensive line shows one of two things. Either they are far more confident in their defensive tackles than many fans are, and are right to do so, or they’ve made a big mistake. I’m unsure how the run defense improves outside of hoping Dean Lowry and Tyler Lancaster play a lot better than last year, and Kingsley Keke makes a second-year jump.

Signing inside linebacker Christian Kirksey could help, but he can’t fix the run defense on his own. Signing a run-stopping defensive tackle like Damon Harrison would help.

Mike Daniels, DL

Another free agent who could help the defensive line is former Packer Mike Daniels. He has familiarity with Mike Pettine’s scheme. Daniels has been unlucky with injuries the past two seasons, but the former Pro Bowler can still help this defense improve.

Daniels is strong against the run and would also make the interior pass rush even stronger. In seven seasons with the Packers, Daniels had 29 sacks.

Delanie Walker, TE

The Packers will likely enter the season expecting a second-year jump from Jace Sternberger. And I’m completely fine with that. Sternberger has all the potential to become a very important part of this offense.

That said, if Brian Gutekunst wants to add another experienced pass-catcher to the mix, he should consider signing Delanie Walker. Walker has worked with Matt LaFleur in the past, and if the three-time Pro Bowler can stay healthy, he’d give Aaron Rodgers another reliable target.
