4. Sign cornerback Tre'Davious White

Although the Packers have had enough of dealing with injured players at the cornerback position, it might not be a terrible idea to bring in a veteran like Tre'Davious White. In today's NFL, you can never have too much cornerback help. The reality is that every NFL team has essentially three starters at corner, and there aren't 96 good ones to go around at this point.

White is a great player when healthy, but that's been a pretty big asterisk for him. But when it comes to taking a risk for one year on a good player, there might not be any better options available. The former first-round pick out of LSU has 18 career interceptions and a lot of experience in big games. The Packers wouldn't have to break the bank here, and White is a really good player who could be a fantastic one-year investment.

5. Sign wide receiver Laviska Shenault

Laviska Shenault has not been in a competent coaching situation yet as an NFL player, unfortunately. He was drafted by Jacksonville in 2020, who were the worst team in the NFL, and the whole coaching staff was fired. The next year, he was coached by Urban Meyer, who was fired before the end of his first season.

After being traded to Carolina, he was on yet another roster in which the coach was fired before the year was out (Matt Rhule). The 2023 season, guess what happened? That's right, Shenault's coach -- Frank Reich -- was fired before the end of his first season.

For a player who is somewhat "positionless," having incompetent coaching has been critical. Getting him on a team like the Packers with Matt LaFleur would be a drastic, desperately-needed change of scenery.
