Every year, the Green Bay Packers have big roster decisions to make over the summer when it comes to choosing their initial 53.
The return of preseason games will help this year. It will give young players and those on the roster bubble a great opportunity to play some snaps in a real game and show the coaching staff what they can do.
But with players coming in and out during the offseason, there will inevitably be some players who end up not playing a meaningful snap for the Packers.
Between now and September, we’ll get answers to some burning questions for the Packers after what has been an eventful offseason so far. Will Aaron Rodgers return to Green Bay? Will he play another snap for the Packers, or could the team actually trade him away?
Who will start along the offensive line? How many rookies will earn starting roles early on? Will the Packers sign any more free agents or make any trades?
There’s plenty of time for all of this to play out, and it should make for a fascinating three months before the start of the regular season. But once training camp is over and Week 1 nears, the roster will be cut down to 53. And that means some players may never end up playing a meaningful snap for the Packers.
