Clay Matthews, LB

If the Packers don’t sign Everson Griffen, why not bring back Clay Matthews? Matthews has familiarity in the scheme, and he proved during his one season with the Los Angeles Rams that he is still an effective pass rusher with eight sacks.

In a backup role, Matthews could make a difference for this defense. And with the versatility to line up at different positions, he’d make Green Bay’s pass rush even better.

Ezekiel Ansah, DE

Ezekiel Ansah is another pass rusher the Packers could consider signing. Ansah’s recent injury history is a concern, but as a backup edge rusher, the former Pro Bowler would be a valuable addition to this defense.

Jared Veldheer, T

Rick Wagner looks to be the frontrunner for the right tackle job, but what if he gets injured or struggles? Would Billy Turner slide from guard to tackle? That would be a risk. One option is to bring back Jared Veldheer, who filled in for Bryan Bulaga in the divisional round win last season. Veldheer can compete for a starting job or be an excellent backup tackle.

Malik Turner, WR

According to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky, the Packers had free agent Malik Turner in for a visit on Friday. Turner would add more competition at wide receiver. He played in 15 games for the Seattle Seahawks last season, catching 15 passes for 245 yards and a touchdown.
