The Green Bay Packers had an excellent draft, but still need some help going into the season. Here are 10 remaining free agents who can help.
With the Green Bay Packers wrapping up Rookie Orientation Camp this weekend, they move closer to their first set of Organized Team Activities (OTAs) from May 21-23. That weekend will be their first opportunity to get a look at the additions they’ve made so far.
Coming into the offseason, the Packers needed more help than ever, especially with their roster being exposed after Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone and missed most of the season.
On offense, they are a blocker or two short on the line in order to give Rodgers the protection he needs. Also, gone are the days where the franchise could walk out three dangerous wide receivers on any given play. After releasing Jordy Nelson for salary cap reasons, they have a plethora of unknown players looking to fill that void.

Defensively, their line is solid, but they could shore up basically every other position. Their top two outside linebackers, Nick Perry and Clay Matthews, have a history of getting hurt. Inside, Blake Martinez has turned into a quality player, but there’s not much else there. Green Bay did draft two corners to help shore up their secondary, but there’s a bunch of question marks as well. Morgan Burnett also departed this offseason, leaving yet another unknown in Josh Jones.
The Packers certainly have added players who have the potential to address these questions, but a lot remains uncertain headed into OTAs. Here are ten free agents on the market who could help provide some more certainty.
