Jon Runyan Jr.

To Jon Runyan's credit, he is coming off arguably his best game of the season in the win over Chicago. But it could be too little, too late, and Runyan's good performance may help him find a new team in 2024. Runyan is one of several Packers starters with an expiring contract in the offseason.

While Runyan remains the starter at right guard, he is splitting snaps with Sean Rhyan, a candidate to start in 2024. Matt LaFleur had previously also rotated Rasheed Walker and Yosh Nijman at left tackle, but Walker's improved play in the second half of the season has won him the job.

But it has been the opposite for Runyan. His role is declining in the second half of the year.

Runyan barely missed a snap in the opening nine games of the regular season. He briefly exited the win over the Los Angeles Rams due to an injury but had played every snap in the other eight games to open the season. Since then, Rhyan's opportunities have increased.

Since Week 15, Runyan and Rhyan have split the snaps at right guard almost exactly in half. Runyan has played between 50 and 57 percent of the snaps in the past four games. The Packers are taking a closer look at Rhyan, a possible indication they plan to move on from Runyan.
