Jon Runyan Jr.

One of the position groups the Packers will need to overhaul a bit in the 2024 offseason is the offensive line. Whether they plan on some in-house promotions, draft picks, or free agents, I think we're going to see Jon Runyan's spot get reevaluated.

When you grade on the curve of Runyan being a sixth-round pick, he's been a pretty great pick for the Packers. But when you consider the expectations heaped on him as a three-year starter? The Packers simply have to do better here.

Runyan will likely get a solid deal in free agency from some other team, but I don't think the Packers are bringing him back.

Royce Newman

Royce Newman was a starter back in his rookie season in 2021, but the Packers simply can't rely on him, even in relief duty anymore.

After two poor performances when he filled in for Elgton Jenkins in Weeks 3-4, Newman didn't play another snap until Week 13.

With free agency looming for Newman in 2025, the Packers should trade him to anyone who is willing to take him on and let him play. Perhaps a change of scenery can revive his hopes of earning a second contract elsewhere in the NFL. But it is time for the Packers to move on.
