2. Trade for wide receiver Tee Higgins

Let's keep on beating this dead horse, even though Tee Higgins and the Packers have been discussed now for what feels like a century.

Higgins is likely available for the right price this offseason, and the Packers have an overabundance of draft capital. They currently have 11 selections in the 2024 NFL Draft, and with the roster as it's currently constructed, are they going to be able to have 11 rookies make the team? The Packers may be uniquely qualified to spend a pick or two on Higgins and not really notice them being gone.

Higgins would give the Packers a legitimate WR1 on the roster. Although it would create a situation with Christian Watson of the "what next?" variety, the chance to add a stud like Higgins might not be something the Packers will want to pass on.

3. Sign linebacker Isaiah Simmons

The opportunity to add a versatile player like Isaiah Simmons at safety/linebacker could be really fascinating for the Green Bay Packers. This is a team that will be looking for help/depth in both of those particular areas, and Simmons is a former first-round pick with a ton of talent.

The Packers making a change at defensive coordinator and bringing in Jeff Hafley is a signal that they not only buy Hafley's scheme but his ability with talent development. In that case, the Packers should be looking to bring in guys like Simmons with a ton of talent and still only 25 years old.
