We have finally reached the point where the Green Bay Packers could be looking at letting a former first-round pick walk in free agency. Along with former second-round pick AJ Dillon and former third-round pick Josiah Deguara, if the Packers let all three of these guys go in free agency, it would be a tough pill to swallow for Green Bay's front office.

But maybe a necessary one.

Darnell Savage has not played well since Joe Barry became the Packers' defensive coordinator, so perhaps a change of scenery will be necessary for both of these guys. Savage has allowed a QB rating into his coverage of 112.7 over the last three seasons combined. This year, he's been limited to just six games due to injury. I think we'll see the Packers reset here.

5. Jon Runyan, G

It will be fascinating to see how the Green Bay Packers reshape the offensive line in 2024. They have a lot of home-grown talent in this area, and it's clear they pride themselves on player development on the offensive line, but I don't think you can bank on late-round guys making up your entire offensive line.

We're already seeing the Packers play with the idea of moving on from Runyan by giving Sean Rhyan snaps at the guard position over him, and I would absolutely bank on them letting Runyan test free agency in 2024.


Whether the Packers move forward with Sean Rhyan or go to free agency or the NFL Draft remains to be seen, but I would guess that this team is going to let another NFL club overpay to bring Runyan in and move on with a more financially responsible option.
