The Green Bay Packers are building for the future. They have a new starting quarterback, a talented young receiving corps, and have moved on from several longtime starters.
More significant changes are on the way in 2024. Life after Aaron Rodgers already looks different in Green Bay, and the team will continue to change as they build around Love in the upcoming offseason.
Green Bay has made a 2-2 start to the regular season but has plenty of issues to fix after a humbling defeat to the Detroit Lions. While many young players like Luke Musgrave and Jayden Reed have shown the potential to become long-term starters, these five players likely won't be back in 2024.
5. Yosh Nijman
Yosh Nijman is a solid starting tackle who can play on both sides of the offensive line. And that's the problem for the Packers. He doesn't start in Green Bay. Even following David Bakhtiari's season-ending injury, the Packers prefer second-year Rasheed Walker to start at left tackle over Nijman, with Zach Tom on the right side.
Nijman is a free agent next offseason. Another team will likely pay him starting tackle money, and who could blame Nijman for wanting to take that opportunity elsewhere? The Packers aren't going to match that just for him to sit on the bench.
Assuming the Packers view Walker and Tom as their starters moving forward, they will likely have to turn to the draft to add more talent at the position.
Unless Nijman wins a starting job before season's end, he will likely move on next offseason.
