These three former Green Bay Packers are still available a week into 2023 free agency.

The Green Bay Packers have made a relatively quiet start to free agency, with the biggest news coming from players leaving rather than signing with them.

Allen Lazard, Dean Lowry, and Jarran Reed are among the Packers players to find new teams, while key players like Mason Crosby, Adrian Amos, and Marcedes Lewis remain free agents.

There are also some former Packers players who remain available one week into free agency.

Here are three former Packers who are still free agents.

WR Sammy Watkins

After losing Davante Adams last offseason, the Packers signed veteran wide receiver Sammy Watkins. The hope was that he would give Aaron Rodgers a reliable, experienced pass-catcher to throw to.

It didn’t work out for Watkins in Green Bay. He featured in just nine games for the Packers, making 13 catches for 206 yards.

After being released by the Packers, Watkins re-signed with the Baltimore Ravens, playing three games in the regular season and one in the playoffs.

The former first-round pick turns 30 in June and remains a free agent a week into free agency. After playing for four different teams since 2017, where will Watkins play in the 2023 season?
