Sign Eric Fisher

Another free agent the Packers could consider is Eric Fisher.

Fisher was the first overall pick by the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2013 NFL Draft. He had a good career in Kansas City, making two Pro Bowls and helping the team win a Super Bowl.

Fisher made the Pro Bowl in 2020 but suffered a torn Achilles in the AFC Championship Game. Quite remarkably, he returned in time for Week 2 of the 2021 season after signing with the Indianapolis Colts.

His recent injury history is a concern, but if the Packers need some added depth at the position, Fisher is a solid player who could come in and help at left tackle.

Like when the Packers signed Dennis Kelly last year, they would be getting an experienced player with plenty of starting experience. When Bakhtiari and Jenkins are fully healthy, he would be a quality backup.

Fisher has made 128 starts in his nine-year career. He also hasn’t missed much time due to injury. Outside of the 2019 season when he missed eight games, Fisher has made at least 13 starts in every other season.

If Bakhtiari misses any time this year and the Packers need some veteran help, Fisher could be a solid option.
