The Green Bay Packers are in a unique position.

It was supposed to be a rebuilding year. The Packers had just traded Aaron Rodgers, and they began the season with a first-year starting quarterback throwing to rookies and second-year pass-catchers. But Matt LaFleur's fearless young team overcame the odds—and a rough start—to finish two games short of the Super Bowl.

The days of playing with house money are gone. This is still a young and relatively inexperienced team, but they now have significantly higher expectations.

With that, the Packers' plan must change. No longer can they afford to think exclusively about the long-term future. That's important, of course, but they must also focus on the present moment.

Green Bay has a chance to establish itself as one of the NFC's top teams in 2024, but it must first make necessary adjustments to the roster. Help is on the way at areas of need, but the Packers need to move on from these players.

5. De'Vondre Campbell

Signing De'Vondre Campbell proved to be one of Brian Gutekunst's best moves as general manager. Campbell signed a one-year, prove-it contract in 2021 and earned first-team All-Pro honors less than a year later.

However, the time has come for the Packers to move on. Campbell's performances were a long way off his All-Pro best this season. His 75 tackles were the lowest since his rookie season. Campbell failed to make an interception for only the third time in his career, and his one pass defense was a career low.

According to Pro Football Reference, quarterbacks throwing into Campbell's coverage completed 18 of 25 passes for 215 yards, one touchdown, no interceptions, and a passer rating of 111.2.

Linebacker is an important position in Jeff Hafley's defense, and the Packers need to improve. Campbell enjoyed some great moments in Green Bay, but it's time to move on.
