2. Packers trade David Bakhtiari to Jets

It seems inevitable the Packers will move on from All-Pro left tackle David Bakhtiari. He only played one game this year due to injury, and Rasheed Walker had an excellent season. Bakhtiari's cap hit reaches almost $40 million, forcing the Packers to make a decision. They can't enter the 2024 season without lowering that number, but the only realistic option is to cut or trade Bakhtiari.

That's where Aaron Rodgers' New York Jets could come in. The Jets must upgrade their offensive line, and you can bet Rodgers would love to be reunited with Bakhtiari. The Packers might not receive much draft capital in return, given Bakhtiari's contract and recent injury history, but a trade would clear almost $21 million in cap space.

1. Jordan Love becomes one of the league's highest-paid QBs

The Packers will hand Jordan Love a multi-year contract extension this offseason—there's no doubt about it. He showed star potential in his first season as a starter, throwing for 4,159 yards, 32 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions in the regular season and another 466 yards, five touchdowns, and two picks in the playoffs.

Love is already one of the best quarterbacks in the NFC. With only one year remaining on his contract, it's time for a new deal. And the Packers will likely make him one of the league's highest-paid quarterbacks. A new Super Bowl window has opened.
