Who stays? Who goes?

General manager Brian Gutekunst hit a home run in the 2023 NFL Draft. He rebuilt Green Bay's receiving corps with Jayden Reed, Luke Musgrave, Dontayvion Wicks, and Tucker Kraft. He upgraded the defense with Day 3 steals, Karl Brooks and Carrington Valentine, while first-round pick Lukas Van Ness is an exciting player for the future.

But he must now determine which players won't return in 2024. The Packers could move on from several of their free agents, a list including Josiah Deguara, Darnell Savage, Yosh Nijman, and Jon Runyan Jr.

What's next for players with significant salary cap hits, like David Bakhtiari, Aaron Jones, and Preston Smith?

What about De'Vondre Campbell, who hasn't played since tweeting his frustration after the Bucs loss? Or Jaire Alexander, who the Packers have suspended for Week 17?

A year ago, Gutekunst parted ways with several key starters from the end of the Aaron Rodgers era, including Allen Lazard, Adrian Amos, Robert Tonyan, Marcedes Lewis, and Randall Cobb. More veterans could be on the way out in 2024.

The most important thing is who Gutekunst adds to the roster, but he must also make the correct calls on who to let go in free agency, release, or trade.
