6. Kenny Clark signs multi-year extension
The Packers rarely hand out third contracts. Kenny Clark can become one of the exceptions. Clark is only 28 years old and is coming off arguably the best season of his career. He set a new career high in sacks (7.5) and quarterback hits (16).
It would also make sense financially for the Packers to work on an extension. Clark is entering the final year of his current deal and has a cap hit of $27.5 million, per Over The Cap. One way to lower that number is by extending his contract.
Everybody wins. Clark gets a multi-year extension, and the Packers create cap space and ensure their star player remains in Green Bay beyond 2024.
5. Packers let all three free-agent safeties walk
Brian Gutekunst completely overhauled the tight end position last offseason. He spent two years rebuilding the wide receiver room. It's time to make a similar decision at safety.
Darnell Savage, Jonathan Owens, and Rudy Ford are free agents. Rookie Anthony Johnson Jr. is the only safety under contract who started a game for the Packers this season. Green Bay could move on from all three and rebuild through the draft. Johnson flashed potential and could soon compete for a starting job, and the Packers proved they aren't afraid to start multiple rookies this season.
Green Bay must improve at safety.
