The Packers didn’t make many signings in free agency, but how have they turned out?

Rick Wagner has been a solid addition although he’s not been an upgrade on Bryan Bulaga. Considering how well Billy Turner has played in his second season with the Packers, it’s also fair to say Wagner isn’t part of the best starting five along the offensive line.

Despite that, Wagner has started seven games and played his part in a great offensive line performance this season. As a backup with the ability to start, the Packers got a bargain in Wagner.

A move that hasn’t yet paid off was the signing of Christian Kirksey. Kirksey has yet to make a big impact in the middle of the Packers’ defense. With the emergence of rookies Kamal Martin and Krys Barnes, Kirksey is starting to see his snap counts reduce. According to Pro Football Reference, he’s played fewer than 72 percent of the defensive snaps over the past two games despite playing 100 percent in most games prior to that.

The Packers also signed wide receiver Devin Funchess in the offseason but he opted out due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
