There have been countless free-agent moves inside the NFC North, many of which the Green Bay Packers have benefited from.
In 2014, the Chicago Bears released future Hall-of-Famer Julius Peppers. He’d later sign with the Packers, making 25 sacks and one Pro Bowl appearance in three seasons. Peppers was a home-run addition by the Packers.
The same can be said of Adrian Amos, who swapped Chicago for Green Bay in 2019. Amos has the third-highest grade among safeties by Pro Football Focus since signing with the Packers. He’s been a great addition to Green Bay’s secondary.
As we approach free agency again, the Packers will have another opportunity to strengthen their roster, although with limited cap space to work with. While they won’t be able to make the big signings they did two years ago, which included bringing in Amos, they could still be active this spring.
Which NFC North free agents could make the move to Green Bay and help this team get better? Let’s look at one free agent from each of the Packers’ division rivals they could look to target this offseason. The key is that it has to be a realistic move, so that rules out Allen Robinson, Anthony Harris, or Kenny Golladay.
