While fans of the Green Bay Packers and New York Jets closely watch Aaron Rodgers’ future, it’s easy to forget that free agency begins in a week.

From Monday, NFL teams will be able to negotiate deals with free agents from around the league. Any agreed deals can become official next Wednesday when the new league year begins.

That means that in less than a week, the other 31 teams will be able to negotiate contracts with the Packers’ unrestricted free agents unless Green Bay re-signs them to new deals before then.

Which Packers players are set to hit free agency next week?

Green Bay Packers 2023 unrestricted free agents

Adrian Amos, S

Adrian Amos has played every game since signing with the Packers in 2019. A talented veteran safety who can help any defense in the league.

Allen Lazard, WR

A reliable receiver and an excellent blocker, Allen Lazard can make any offense better. But will he remain in Green Bay?

Mason Crosby, K

Mason Crosby is Green Bay’s all-time leading points scorer and has played every game since being drafted in 2007. An incredible run.

Keisean Nixon, CB

Keisean Nixon was a first-team All-Pro after leading the NFL in kick return yards. The Packers need to re-sign Nixon, who is a great returner and also contributes on defense.

Marcedes Lewis, TE

Marcedes Lewis has been one of the best blocking tight ends in the NFL in recent years, but he turns 39 this offseason.

Robert Tonyan, TE

Robert Tonyan is a solid pass-catcher and caught 11 touchdowns in 2020. It wouldn’t be a surprise if the Packers brought him back on a one-year deal.

Randall Cobb, WR

One of Aaron Rodgers’ greatest-ever wide receivers. It won’t be a surprise if Randall Cobb’s future is determined by where Rodgers is playing.

Jarran Reed, DL

Jarran Reed had a solid first season in Green Bay but perhaps didn’t make the impact many had hoped, finishing with 2.5 sacks.

Dean Lowry, DL

Dean Lowry had a career year in 2021 but struggled this past season. It feels like a good time for the Packers to move on.

Dallin Leavitt, S

Dallin Leavitt was a valuable special teams contributor for Green Bay in 2022.

Rudy Ford, S

Rudy Ford also contributed on special teams for the Packers and stepped in as a backup safety, making three interceptions and forcing a fumble.

Eric Wilson, LB

Most of Eric Wilson’s snaps came on special teams, where he played well.

Corey Ballentine, CB

Another special teams contributor, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Corey Ballentine is back next season.

Justin Hollins, EDGE

Justin Hollins made 2.5 sacks in six games, showing he can provide valuable pass-rush depth.
