8. DT Dean Lowry
Dean Lowry had a career year in 2021, which is perhaps the reason he remains on the roster. The Packers opted not to make a significant cap saving by moving on from Lowry this offseason.
However, Lowry is now entering the final year of his contract. With another excellent season, he could land an extension.
But the Packers drafted defensive lineman Devonte Wyatt in the first round earlier this spring. Lowry will also turn 29 years old next offseason. Will the Packers want to commit to a long-term deal?
7. WR Randall Cobb
Randall Cobb proved he can still contribute last season. He also still has great chemistry with Aaron Rodgers.
Cobb is entering the final year of his current contract.
If he plays well this season and Aaron Rodgers remains in Green Bay, the Packers could work out an affordable one-year extension for the former Pro Bowl wide receiver.
However, after drafting three wide receivers this spring, it’s difficult to see a scenario where Cobb is re-signed if Rodgers retires.
Rodgers wanted Cobb back last summer, and there is no doubting their great connection on the field. But if Rodgers walks away next offseason, it also seems likely that Cobb’s incredible career in Green Bay will come to an end.
