Four Packers who could get big-money contracts in the future.

A reduced salary cap is to be expected in the near future due to the pandemic, but today we’ll look a couple of years down the line for the Green Bay Packers.

Which players on the roster could one day be set for new big-money contracts with the Packers?

Here are four who could eventually land big deals.

Davante Adams

Davante Adams is the 15th-highest paid wide receiver in football, according to Over The Cap. In other words, a bargain for the Packers.

Adams, who leads the NFL in receiving yards per game and receiving touchdowns this year, has been dominant all season long. With 54 touchdowns to his name in his past 68 regular season games, it’s only a matter of time before Adams lands a new deal.

A free agent in 2022, it’s a matter of when, not if, the Packers offer him a new contract.

Jaire Alexander

Jaire Alexander is enjoying a breakout season for the Packers. He impressed in his first two years but has been an All-Pro-level corner in 2020.

Alexander’s rookie deal expires after the 2021 season as things stand, but expect the Packers to pick up his fifth-year option which would give them another year to work out a long-term deal. But at some point down the line, Alexander will earn a huge contract.

Elgton Jenkins

Elgton Jenkins might be Brian Gutekunst’s best draft pick. The 2019 second-round pick has been dominant no matter where he’s lined up along the offensive line. Still only in his second season, Jenkins won’t become a free agent until 2023.

But if Jenkins continues to play at this level, he won’t have to wait that long to get a new contract.

Jordan Love

Jordan Love is yet to play a single snap in the NFL but the Packers drafted him in the first round to be their future. It remains to be seen whether Love will indeed be a great successor to Aaron Rodgers, but it’s certainly a possibility he is the long-term starter after Rodgers.

And if he impresses early on as the starter, he’ll be in line for a big contract down the line.
