Patrick Taylor

UPDATE: The Packers announced on Monday that they have signed Patrick Taylor.

Robinson is one of three former Packers whom the team could look to bring back before Thursday's game with the Detroit Lions. Another name to watch is Patrick Taylor.

Bringing Taylor back would make a lot of sense, and it's the most likely option for Green Bay.

Taylor wouldn't need to learn the offense; he has played four games for the Packers this season. Green Bay signed Taylor as an undrafted free agent in 2020, so he has a deep understanding of Matt LaFleur's system.

Taylor began the 2023 season on the Packers' practice squad. They elevated him to the active roster for the maximum of three games, then signed him to the 53 for the matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders.

Not only would Taylor take on some of the carries, but he is trusted in pass protection.

Signing Taylor should be easy enough, although it's not as straightforward as Robinson. Taylor is currently on the New England Patriots' practice squad. Green Bay can still sign him, but New England could prevent that by signing Taylor to its active roster. However, that seems unlikely.

Taylor could help the Packers against the Lions on Thursday. Bringing him back makes sense.
