4. Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, S

The Green Bay Packers have a ton of youth right now at the safety position. Although there might be fresher options out there who could help in the veteran safety department, maybe they call up Ha Ha Clinton-Dix out of retirement and see what he can do this offseason.

Clinton-Dix retired in late December 2022, so he hasn't been out of the game for that long. A first-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, Clinton-Dix was an All-Pro for the Packers at one point and played last in the regular season back in 2021 for the Las Vegas Raiders.

Clinton-Dix is currently working with the Alabama football program, but if he's still in shape, this could be a fun reunion. Clinton-Dix could be a player-coach on the field and help this young safety group out.

Casey Hayward is another instance where it's tough to know whether or not he's "officially" retired. He was cut in 2023 by the Atlanta Falcons with a failed physical designation, and hasn't shown up since.

He hasn't played since he appeared in six games with the Falcons in 2022, but perhaps having a year off has given Hayward the chance to get his body right and get physically ready for the rigors of another NFL season at the age of 34.

Hayward had a bit of a resurgence just a couple of years ago with the Las Vegas Raiders when he somewhat surprisingly played extremely well, starting all 17 games. Even though he's a bit older now, perhaps Hayward could return to Green Bay and give the Packers a veteran option at a position they've been oddly quiet about addressing in 2024.
