2. Royce Newman, offensive line

The discourse around Royce Newman has carried on ad nauseam at this point. The former fourth-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft will soon likely reach the end of his time with the Green Bay Packers, probably before Week 1 of the 2024 season.

Newman was active every game last year but his snaps diminished and they've been decreasing exponentially since he started 16 games as a rookie. There may have, at one point, been enough promise from Newman for the Packers to believe he could be a starter or key role player, but that no longer appears to be the case. The team can't trust him to perform when he's on the field, and they've done enough in the NFL Draft and free agency this offseason to cut ties when roster cuts are due.

3. Greg Joseph, kicker

The Packers are doing everything they can to push Anders Carlson in his second NFL season. Carlson struggled throughout his rookie year for the Packers, including missing a kick against the 49ers in the playoffs that cost the Packers a shot at going to the NFC Championship Game.

As a result of his struggles last year, Green Bay has left no stone unturned when it comes to the kicker position, adding veteran Greg Joseph as well as James Turner to the mix. Unless Joseph is absolutely killing it this offseason, he's not going to make this team over a player the Packers just drafted last year.
