Yosh Nijman

Yosh Nijman is a capable starter at tackle and can play on both sides of the offensive line. However, he may seek an opportunity to start in 2024, which is why he likely won't return to Green Bay.

Rasheed Walker had an outstanding second half of the season, securing his future with the team. Unless David Bakhtiari is healthy, he is likely the Week 1 starter in 2024. Zach Tom played at a Pro Bowl level at right tackle all season.

Bakhtiari's future is uncertain, but if he's healthy and stays in Green Bay, Nijman would fall to fourth on the depth chart at tackle.

There's always a shortage of tackles good enough to start in the NFL. If Nijman hits free agency, it won't take long to land a contract from a new team, and he will likely earn more money elsewhere. He has plenty of experience, having started 21 games from 2021 to 2022. But with limited opportunities to play this season, Nijman's future is likely with another team.

The Packers won't want to pay Nijman starting tackle money, especially if Bakhtiari returns. But another team likely will. Nijman can start for several NFL teams, but the Packers' depth at tackle means he is probably gone this offseason.
