Which former Green Bay Packers players could end up being good fits on the 2024 roster? There might be more out there than you really anticipate given the fact that reunions aren't overly common in the NFL, and once teams move on from a player, that bridge is typically burned.

But you just never know when a player's career could come full circle. Players that have left Green Bay in recent years may be finishing contracts with the teams they bolted for, or they might just need to get back into the Packers organization in order to truly thrive.

Which former Packers could be interesting options to be brought back to Green Bay this offseason? Let's look at a handful of options.

1. Micah Hyde, S

With Jonathan Owens, Rudy Ford, and Darnell Savage slated to hit free agency, it's no secret that the safety position is going to be in focus for the Packers this offseason.

With new defensive coordinator Jeff Hafley coming in, perhaps having a veteran on the back end of the defense would be valuable in order to have someone who can direct traffic. There haven't been many in the league better at the safety position over the last decade than Buffalo Bills free agent Micah Hyde.

Hyde was selected by the Packers out of Iowa back in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft, and he turned out to be a steal pretty much immediately. By the time he left the Packers for the Bills in 2017, Hyde was ascending at an astronomical rate, and he was named All-Pro in his first year with Buffalo.

Although he's already going to be 33 this season, Hyde might be able to help the Packers' defense on a short-term deal.
