Royce Newman

It seems the Packers know they must improve their depth at guard. Royce Newman was a liability in games against the New Orleans Saints and Detroit Lions. PFF handed him a pass block grade of just 42.4 against the Lions, as Newman allowed one sack, five pressures, and three hurries.

Newman would only play a further 10 offensive snaps in the final three months of the regular season, with most of them coming late in a blowout victory over the Minnesota Vikings. Jon Runyan is a free agent, potentially leaving the team without much depth at guard. The Packers need to add multiple interior linemen this offseason.

De'Vondre Campbell

De'Vondre Campbell has enjoyed some great moments in Green Bay, but it's time to move on. By releasing or trading Campbell this offseason, the Packers can create $2.6 million.

Campbell failed to make an interception this year despite having two in each of the previous two seasons. He also finished with zero sacks. Campbell missed six games due to injury.

The former fourth-round pick turns 31 in the summer. The Packers have gotten younger on both sides of the ball. Quay Walker and Isaiah McDuffie are capable starters moving forward, and Green Bay may add another linebacker in the 2024 NFL Draft.
