3 Packers who have offered almost nothing to the team in 2023

The first half of the regular season hasn't gone to plan for the Green Bay Packers.

A rollercoaster ride was expected when the Packers began the season with the youngest roster in the league. The offense has produced disappointing and inconsistent results, while the defense continues to fall below expectations under Joe Barry.

Matt LaFleur's team has lost five out of its past six games, shedding light on the many issues on both sides of the ball, from coaching to bad execution to simply needing more talent.

Many players haven't met preseason expectations, but these three have offered next to nothing this season.

Josiah Deguara

The Packers moved on from veteran tight ends Marcedes Lewis and Robert Tonyan in the offseason, drafting Luke Musgrave and Tucker Kraft to replace them. Josiah Deguara was expected to take on greater responsibility while the rookies adjusted to the NFL.

But it just hasn't worked out. Ten weeks into the season, it's fair to ask what Deguara adds on offense.

Receiving? He has eight catches for 65 yards this year. Blocking? He has the Packers' worst PFF grade for pass blocking and the sixth-worst for run blocking. Deguara has missed too many blocks.

And he is being phased out of the Packers' offense. Deguara started the opening three games of the season, but he only played five offensive snaps last week and a total of 23 over the past three games.

Deguara is making mistakes on special teams, too. He was at fault for the Packers' blocked extra point against the Pittsburgh Steelers last week.

With his rookie contract expiring in the offseason, Deguara is likely playing his final games for the Packers.
