Decisions the Green Bay Packers make in the coming months will shape the team's long-term future.
The Packers are in the process of rebuilding. They have the youngest roster in the NFL and are slowly working toward a healthier salary cap. Building a team ready to compete in the NFC year after year will take time, and the Packers must make the correct decisions to get there.
This could be a completely different team a year from now. Two years from now. How many players and coaches will still be in Green Bay in 2025?
The Packers have tough decisions to make in the near future, and each will directly impact the direction of this team moving forward. Let's look at three crucial decisions they must make.
3. Which players are part of the Packers' future?
Green Bay has the league's youngest roster, meaning several players with little NFL experience are in starting positions. It's an evaluation year for the Packers -- a chance to determine which players they can build around long-term.
Which players are locks to make the roster in 2025?
Rashan Gary just signed a massive contract extension. Jaire Alexander and Elgton Jenkins will still be under contract. We can assume a number of rookies and second-year players will still be on the roster, including Lukas Van Ness, Luke Musgrave, Jayden Reed, and Christian Watson.
But what about AJ Dillon, Darnell Savage, Josh Myers, Yosh Nijman, or even Jordan Love? Green Bay has to determine which players it can build around over the next three or more years. That begins with the upcoming list of free agents in the offseason.
