3. Mason Crosby

The Packers haven't officially shut the door on a Mason Crosby return, but actions speak louder than words, and their offseason moves seem to indicate they have moved on.

But even if Green Bay doesn't plan to re-sign its all-time leading points scorer, it's surprising another team hasn't. The Packers lack salary cap space, which is one reason for drafting a rookie kicker to replace Crosby.

However, there are always teams in need of help at kicker, and Crosby is a proven veteran.

Crosby is still a fantastic kicker. He converted 86.2% of his field goal attempts last season, including a long of 56 yards in frozen Lambeau Field conditions. He did struggle to consistently hit kickoffs into the end zone, but he was as good as ever on field goals and extra-point tries.

Teams searching for consistency at the position should give Crosby a call. That could include Mike McCarthy's Dallas Cowboys. McCarthy knows how good Crosby is from their long time together in Green Bay. The Cowboys could be in the market for a kicker this summer.

As of yet, Crosby hasn't indicated that he plans to retire. And if he wants to keep playing, a team should sign him.
