4. WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling

The Packers will enter the 2022 offseason with the majority of their wide receivers about to hit free agency. Marquez Valdes-Scantling is one of them. MVS has emerged as a great deep threat in Green Bay’s offense having averaged a league-best 20.9 yards per catch last season.

But where MVS has struggled is with consistency. He still makes far too many frustrating mistakes such as drops. If he can make fewer errors and build on his performances from last season, he will be in position to land a new deal with the Packers. But it’s no guarantee and with limited cap room, the team might not be able to re-sign him.

3. TE Robert Tonyan

After spending a ton of resources at the tight end position without much success, it was former undrafted free agent Robert Tonyan who ended that search in 2020. He caught 52 passes for 586 yards and 11 touchdowns and was one of the Packers’ most consistent pass catchers.

Tonyan was a restricted free agent this offseason but Green Bay made sure to bring him back. But that means he is set to become an unrestricted free agent next offseason. If Tonyan has another strong season, it’s fair to assume there will be interest around the league, and that could make it tough to re-sign him.
