Big decisions are ahead for the Green Bay Packers in free agency.
A number of veteran starters on offense are set to become free agents for the Packers in the spring. How many will they bring back?
Let’s look at each of the upcoming unrestricted free agents for Green Bay on offense.
Green Bay Packers’ 2023 free agents: Offense
OL Elgton Jenkins
Jenkins returned from a significant injury this season and is yet to recapture his Pro Bowl form. He will get there in time, and re-signing Jenkins has to be priority number one for the Packers in free agency.
WR Allen Lazard
This is an interesting one. Lazard has been a reliable receiver for Green Bay in recent years, but will he receive a better offer elsewhere?
Green Bay drafted Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs, but Lazard still has an important role to play. The Packers will want him back, but can they match what other teams might be willing to pay?
WR Randall Cobb
If Aaron Rodgers returns, perhaps Randall Cobb will be re-signed. If not, it could be the end of an incredible career in Green Bay for the former Pro Bowler.
TE Robert Tonyan
Another tough decision. Tonyan has been a solid starter for Green Bay in recent years. Without him, tight end would be a huge need. But what contract will Tonyan want, and will another team offer him more money than the Packers?
TE Marcedes Lewis
Lewis is a valuable starter in Matt LaFleur’s offense with his excellent blocking ability but he turns 39 in the offseason, so could this be the end of his time in Green Bay?
WR Sammy Watkins
With only 13 catches in nine games this season, Watkins hasn’t made the impact the Packers would’ve hoped. It seems unlikely Watkins will be back in 2023.
