With the Green Bay Packers’ playoff chances fading fast, here are five players they need to move on from in the offseason.
In just five weeks, the Green Bay Packers have gone from a strong position in the NFC to barely hanging on.
A disastrous losing run, the Packers’ worst since Aaron Rodgers’ first year as a starter, has the team staring at the possibility of picking inside the top 10 of next year’s draft.
Following this season could be the start of a painful rebuilding process, whether Rodgers is still there or not.
With that in mind, here are five players Green Bay needs to move on from following this season.
Entering the season, Green Bay’s defensive line was supposed to be a strength.
Pro Bowler Kenny Clark would finally get some help with the addition of free-agent signing Jarran Reed and first-round pick Devonte Wyatt.
Reed hasn’t had the season the Packers hoped.
Despite starting six games and playing the second-most snaps among defensive linemen, Reed hasn’t made much of an impact, with just one sack and four quarterback hits in the opening nine games.
Reed turns 30 next month and hasn’t given the Packers a reason to re-sign him next offseason. He signed a one-year deal this season.
