Reviewing the Packers’ 2020 free agency decisions after 14 games.

Many questions were asked about the Green Bay Packers‘ offseason decisions after falling a game short of the Super Bowl last season. Today, we take a look back at the free agency moves GM Brian Gutekunst made.

Even after such a successful first season for Matt LaFleur, it was highly unlikely the Packers would be able to be as aggressive in free agency as the year prior when they signed Za’Darius Smith, Preston Smith, Adrian Amos, and Billy Turner to big deals.

This past offseason, the Packers allowed the majority of their unrestricted free agents to walk, re-signing only a few. When it came to signing free agents from other teams, Gutekunst was more cautious and went with low-risk moves at positions of need.

The three main signings were tackle Rick Wagner with Bryan Bulaga departing in free agency, inside linebacker Christian Kirksey with Blake Martinez not re-signed, and wide receiver Devin Funchess.

Green Bay re-signed kicker Mason Crosby, returner Tyler Ervin, tight end Marcedes Lewis, and safety Will Redmond.

So with the benefit of watching the past 14 games of the season play out, did the Packers make the right moves in free agency this year? Here’s a review of the departures, re-signings, and signings.
