4. Sign Kendall Fuller, cornerback

Kendall Fuller is an eight-year NFL veteran at this point and team captain who has put forth a level of consistency over the last handful of years in Washington that could be extremely attractive to the Green Bay Packers.

When you look at Green Bay's secondary right now, an ideal world would have both Jaire Alexander and Eric Stokes starting at the outside positions and perhaps the ability to sign someone like Fuller to come in and play the slot. The Packers may not be able to commit fully to Eric Stokes this offseason, but that's another situation entirely.

If they give it at least another year with Stokes, having the veteran Fuller playing in the slot would be tremendous. He had 79 total tackles and a pair of interceptions last season, as well as nine passes broken up in 15 games. His market value is around $14 million per season, according to Spotrac, but if the Packers could get him for $11-12 million per season, it could work.

5. Sign a free-agent running back

The Packers are in a position now to be able to sign a free-agent running back if they so choose.

Everyone has made the connection between Matt LaFleur and Derrick Henry from their days in Tennessee together, but with this kind of salary cap flexibility, the Packers could get the most bang for their buck in terms of impact per dollar spent on a stud running back, even someone to potentially pair up with Aaron Jones.

You may not be able to convince Josh Jacobs or Saquon Barkley to join that kind of committee, but Derrick Henry or Tony Pollard could be in play for Green Bay as some super impactful free-agent pickups.
