Ten Green Bay Packers who could be entering their final year.

Entering the 2021 season, the Green Bay Packers have one of the strongest rosters in the league and should be considered serious Super Bowl contenders. The same has been true in each of the past two seasons.

However, we’ve already seen this offseason some of the challenges due to the lowered salary cap. Unfortunately, many of those problems will still be there next year.

Aaron Rodgers’ future remains uncertain this year, but it’s possible many of the questions we’re asking now will be asked again in the spring.

Here are 10 players on the Packers’ roster who could be entering their final season with the team.

10. DT Dean Lowry

According to Over The Cap, Dean Lowry is set for a cap hit of $7.92 million in 2022, over double his cap number this year. That’s far too high for a player who has been unable to meet expectations along the defensive line for the Packers.

Maybe the Packers will restructure his deal to spread out that cost further, but they can cut his cap hit roughly in half by releasing him in 2022.

9. WR Equanimeous St. Brown

Equanimeous St. Brown is one of many Packers wide receivers set to hit free agency next offseason. Has EQ done enough to earn a second contract?

Despite being active for 12 games last season, St. Brown only made seven receptions in the regular season, putting up 117 yards and a touchdown. He also had a costly drop on a two-point conversion in the NFC title game.

With the arrival of Amari Rodgers and Devin Funchess coming back, opportunities could be limited for St. Brown again in 2021.
