3 best moves Packers made in 2023 offseason ranked
An offseason Green Bay Packers fans won't forget anytime soon.
The Aaron Rodgers era ended the same way as the Brett Favre era, with a trade to the New York Jets and the Packers moving to a first-round quarterback entering his fourth season.
Some of the Packers' offseason moves were surprising, but GM Brian Gutekunst deserves a lot of credit for his work in recent months.
We previously looked at the Packers' worst offseason moves. Now it's time to rank their top three decisions.
Packers best offseason moves No. 3: Re-signing Keisean Nixon
Offering Keisean Nixon a new contract had to be at the top of the free agency to-do list, and the Packers got it done.
Nixon can do a bit of everything for the Packers this season. After a first-team All-Pro year as the kick returner in 2022, Nixon won't let the ridiculous rule change impact his game. He doesn't plan to call for a fair catch anytime soon.
While Nixon will continue to play a crucial role on special teams, he is also expected to start at slot corner this season. Head coach Matt LaFleur wouldn't even rule out finding opportunities for Nixon on offense.
Will Nixon play on offense, defense, or special teams? All of the above, quite possibly.
The Packers hit a home run by signing Nixon last offseason. Bringing him back was a great decision.
