At the very least, the Green Bay deserves credit for making Monday interesting.

On a day when NFL news broke every 10 minutes for, like, seven hours, the Packers' flurry of moves kept them in the conversation for most of it – which has never won a team the Super Bowl but it's March, and who cares. In the span of about three hours, the Packers released David Bakhtiari, replaced Aaron Jones with Josh Jacobs, lost Darnell Savage, and signed Xavier Xavier McKinney, drastically changing how both sides of the ball will look in 2024.

There are still plenty of moves left to be made – and with the loss of Bakhtiari and guard Jon Ronyan, who signed a three year deal with the New York Giants – a few of those moves may come on the offensive line.

There are still a few intriguing options available after Day 1, though with the 25th overall pick in this year's NFL Draft, it wouldn't be surprising to see GM Brian Gutekunst go in that direction instead. So after a long day of Packers drama dominating NFL Twitter's timeline (aka winning the offseason), here's how the first handful of moves grade out, after exactly one day.
