It's possible that some players who have played their last snaps for the Green Bay Packers may have also played their last snaps in the NFL entirely.

The NFL is a brutal league sometimes, and for whatever reason, you might not have the right opportunity in another NFL city or you just didn't do enough at your previous stop to warrant a contract elsewhere. Sometimes, it has to do with injuries piling up.

You just never know sometimes when the last time you see someone play in the NFL is going to be the last time. Former Packers players like Nick Perry and Kevin King were even former high draft choices whose playing careers just ended after they were done in Green Bay.

In their cases, before the age of 30.

Which current Packers free agents (as well as a couple of other players on the roster) could be forced into retirement unexpectedly?

1. Tyler Davis

At some point, you really just need time on task to warrant even a 90-man roster spot from an NFL team. Tyler Davis has already bounced around other teams in the league before coming to the Packers, specifically having previous stints with the Jaguars and Colts before coming to Green Bay in 2021.

And although the former UConn and Georgia Tech tight end has been in the league since 2020 (former sixth-round pick), he hasn't played since 2022, when he was active for all 17 games with the Packers. He was placed on season-ending IR last August and is set to hit free agency where his value is...what, exactly?

Even if Davis ends up getting a look somewhere else on a 90-man roster, he may have played his last snaps in the NFL.
