It’s that time of year again. Free agency is just over a month away, which means the Green Bay Packers have some big decisions to make.

GM Brian Gutekunst has a tough challenge ahead with the possibility of a reduced salary cap to go with a long list of talented players hitting free agency.

Below is a full list of the Packers’ upcoming free agents in the 2021 offseason:

Packers unrestricted free agents in 2021

  • Corey Linsley, C
  • Aaron Jones, RB
  • Jamaal Williams, RB
  • Kevin King, CB
  • Marcedes Lewis, TE
  • Lane Taylor, G
  • Tavon Austin, WR
  • Tyler Ervin, RB
  • Damon Harrison, DT
  • Montravius Adams, DT
  • Billy Winn, DE
  • James Burgess, ILB

Before we even begin to talk about who should be re-signed, note that Green Bay needs to free up $32.69 million just to get under the projected salary cap, according to Over The Cap. By releasing players, restructuring deals, or even offering contract extensions, this can be done.

All-Pro left tackle David Bakhtiari and Pro Bowl defensive tackle Kenny Clark were both set to hit free agency in 2021 but the Packers worked out long-term deals last year.

That alone makes it possible they’ve already re-signed everyone they plan to and everyone else will be with another team next season. We can expect the majority of the team’s free agents to walk. There isn’t enough cap room to bring back many of them.

Center Corey Linsley is coming off a career-year that saw him named a first-team All-Pro. Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams form one of the best 1-2 punches at running back in the NFL. Kevin King may have struggled in the NFC title game, but he’s been a solid starter at cornerback for the Packers. And don’t forget about the role Marcedes Lewis has played on offense in recent years.

Who do you think Green Bay should bring back?
