Packers: 10 key players who could be gone after season-ending loss
4. Mason Crosby
If this is it, what a career Mason Crosby has enjoyed. He recently broke Brett Favre’s record for most consecutive games played for the Packers. He hasn’t missed a game since being drafted in 2007, an incredible 258 games in the regular season, along with 23 in the playoffs.
Crosby is the Packers’ all-time leading points scorer and has made some huge game-winning kicks over the years, including in the postseason.
It’s rare to have continuity at kicker for almost two decades, but that’s what Crosby has provided for the Packers.
A free agent and set to turn 39 before the start of the 2023 season, could this be it for Crosby?
3. Aaron Jones
Statistically, Aaron Jones is coming off his best season. He rushed for 1,121 yards and two touchdowns, adding 395 receiving yards and five touchdowns. It was also only the second time he has played in every game of the regular season.
Jones is still one of the best running backs in the league and the Packers are far better offensively when he is given a featured role.
However, Jones’ contract is the issue. His cap hit jumps up to a little over $20 million, but the Packers would save over half of that by releasing him.
Jones recently turned 28 and will be entering his seventh season in 2023. The Packers may move on to create cap space.
