4. WR Allen Lazard
Aaron Rodgers believes Allen Lazard can be the Packers’ WR1 this season, and that could absolutely be his role.
However, unless he signs a contract extension before next spring, he is set to become an unrestricted free agent in 2023.
With Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling already gone this offseason, and Sammy Watkins and Randall Cobb not guaranteed to be on the team in 2023, it would be smart to work on an extension with Lazard.
Lazard is so important to this offense not just as a pass catcher, but also for his blocking ability.
But until he signs a new deal, there is a risk the Packers will lose him next year.
3. S Adrian Amos
Another player entering the final year of his deal is safety Adrian Amos. Amos hasn’t missed a game since the 2017 season, when he was playing for the Chicago Bears.
He has started all 49 possible regular season games for the Packers since 2019, and is one of the team’s most reliable, consistent players.
There will undoubtedly be a market for Amos if he hits free agency, but will the Packers be willing to pay him what he wants? He turns 30 next offseason, and the Packers don’t typically give multi-year extensions to players 30 or over.
