2. Trade for safety Justin Simmons

If the Denver Broncos are going to be having any sort of fire sale this offseason, the Green Bay Packers could come calling.

As I said before, the Packers have 11 selections in this year's NFL Draft. Adding a veteran like Justin Simmons, who has been a turnover machine throughout his NFL career, would be massive for Green Bay's defense. Simmons can really do it all on the back end, and not only that, but he would be one of the key leaders in the locker room as well.

When you have a new coordinator coming in, you need guys who are going to help you set a culture, and Simmons is the type of veteran who can make everyone around him better. He would be well worth a third-round investment.

3. Sign Jordan Fuller, safety

Jordan Fuller is an intriguing option for the Green Bay Packers this offseason, given the fact that the Packers not only have a need at the safety position, but Fuller has some history with new defensive coordinator Jeff Hafley.

Hafley was on the staff at Ohio State when Fuller was there as co-defensive coordinator and defensive backs coach. Not only is Fuller a realistic option for that connection, but coming off of a big season, the added cap space might make it easier for the Packers to justify going out and spending on a younger free agent like this who might have a bigger price tag after picking off three passes and forcing three fumbles for the Rams last season.
