Position-by-position breakdown of Packers’ roster before free agency
Under contract in 2022: Jaire Alexander, Eric Stokes, Shemar Jean-Charles, Kabion Ento
Offseason need: Yes, depending on future of free agents
Jaire Alexander and Eric Stokes could be a star duo on the outside, but there is a lack of depth behind them. Re-signing Rasul Douglas would help coming off a five-interception season. Douglas, Kevin King, and Chandon Sullivan are free agents.
If the Packers bring back Douglas and Sullivan, problem solved. If not, they will need to add some depth in the offseason.
Under contract in 2022: Adrian Amos, Darnell Savage, Vernon Scott, Innis Gaines
Offseason need: Possible
Safety could be an underrated need for the Packers this offseason as Darnell Savage took a step back in 2021. Henry Black should be back — he’s an exclusive-rights free agent.
Adrian Amos continues to deliver in the Packers’ defense, but Savage’s play this season was concerning. Don’t be surprised if Green Bay addresses the safety position in the draft.
Under contract in 2022: Mason Crosby, JJ Molson
Offseason need: Possible if Crosby is released
Mason Crosby faces an uncertain future after missing nine field goals in the regular season and one in the playoffs. Not all of it falls on him — some were blocked — but it was still a tough year for Crosby. Crosby’s cap hit in 2022 is $4.7 million — releasing him would roughly cut that in half.
The Packers protected JJ Molson on the practice squad all season and just signed him to the roster following the playoff exit.
Something to watch.
Under contract in 2022: None
Offseason need: Yes, unless Corey Bojorquez is re-signed
The Packers don’t currently have a punter under contract for 2022 so, yes, they have a need at the position. Corey Bojorquez had a solid first year in Green Bay and there would be no reason not to re-sign him.
