Free agency begins next month. Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst has some work to do to ensure the team is under the salary cap.

By restructuring current deals, moving on from a couple of players, and pushing money into future years when the cap will likely be higher, the Packers can not only get under the cap, but also free up enough room to make some moves in free agency should they choose to.

Gutekunst made some big moves in free agency two years ago, bringing in Adrian Amos, Billy Turner, and the Smith Bros. And it paid off in a big way, helping the Packers return to the postseason after missing out the previous two years. After a quieter free agency in 2020, now should be the time to be aggressive.

Aaron Rodgers is coming off an MVP season, the Packers fell a game short of the Super Bowl for the second year running, and this team feels close to winning another championship. If there’s ever a time to go all-in and push for another Super Bowl in the Rodgers era, this is it.

The Packers won’t be able to make multiple big signings in free agency but that doesn’t mean they can’t put themselves in position to take a risk or two.

If Gutekunst decides to go all-in for 2021, here are three players to consider signing in free agency.
