Corey Linsley’s time as a Packer may have come to end

Player #3: Corey Linsley

Corey Linsley has been a staple of the Packers’ offensive line since he was drafted, all the way back in 2014. Over the last year or so, he has broken out as one of the best centers in the league.

Pro Football Focus even had Linsley as their highest-graded center of 2020. Now, I think Linsley is a great player, and letting him walk isn’t a product of his production, but rather what his price range will be.

The Packers don’t currently have a whole lot of cap space so unless Linsley is willing to take a team-friendly deal, I can’t see him being on the Packers beyond the 2020 season. One of the strengths of the Green Bay offense is their depth at the offensive line.

Having Elgton Jenkins who is able to play several positions across the line gives the Packers some wiggle room and I wouldn’t be too surprised to see Jenkins as the opening day center in 2021.

Linsley has been great for Green Bay over the years and it would be sad to see him go, but the fact that they haven’t reached an agreement yet tells me that the Packers are okay with moving in a new direction at the position.
