Marcedes Lewis: Re-signs

Marcedes Lewis has been an unsung hero in the Packers offense under Matt LaFleur. With Lewis telling TMZ Sports he has no plans to retire, I predict he’ll be back for another year.

Lane Taylor: Re-signs

Lane Taylor has battled injuries the past two seasons and is coming off a torn ACL, but let’s not forget how well he played during the summer, enough to secure a starting spot along the offensive line. At some point this summer, the Packers bring him back.

Tyler Ervin: Walks

Tyler Ervin struggled to match last season’s form as the Packers’ special teams remained an issue throughout the season. Green Bay could start over on punt returns.

Tavon Austin: Walks

Tavon Austin didn’t provide the spark the Packers hoped when he was signed during the season. Similarly, the team could look elsewhere.

Damon Harrison: Walks

Damon Harrison played a grand total of 16 snaps in the Packers’ two postseason games, according to Pro Football Reference, after being signed late in the season. Harrison’s time in Green Bay could be a short one.

Montravius Adams: Walks

A third-round pick in 2017, Montravius Adams hasn’t landed a significant role on defense with limited snaps in each of his four seasons.

Billy Winn: Walks

Billy Winn was rarely on the field for the Packers in 2020, so it seems unlikely he’ll be re-signed this offseason.

James Burgess: Walks

Signed from the Atlanta Falcons’ practice squad in October, James Burgess played in four games but all of his snaps were on special teams.
