With the 2015 season in the books, the Packers have decisions to make this offseason. Each year brings with it a list of free agents that have to be decided upon. This year’s list is extensive, contains some fan favorite names, and could change the profile of the team going into the 2016 season.
UFA’s Unrestricted Free Agents:
OT Don Barclay
K Mason Crosby
LS Brett Goode (currently on IR)
DT Letroy Guion
CB Casey Hayward
WR James Jones
FB John Kuhn
OLB Mike Neal
OLB Nick Perry (declined 5th-year option)
TE Andrew Quarless
NT B.J. Raji
S Sean Richardson (currently on IR)
RB James Starks
QB Scott Tolzien
Several players on this list are worthy of discussion. Crosby, after a tough year a few back has been quite good. Guys like LeTroy Guion, Casey Hayward, and Nick Perry turned it on at the end of the season. John Kuhn…well the guy is just a spark for the offense. Quarless and Starks were important cogs at one time, are they still needed? This list is the crucial one and we welcome all discussion on who should stay and who should go. Should the Packers re-sign James Jones?
RFA’s: Restricted Free Agents
The Packers can match offers for these guys and the list, to me, is less critical:
OLB Andy Mulumba
G Lane Taylor
Exclusive-Rights Free Agents
Also, not critical, especially if you are looking for the Packers to pick up a tight end in the draft are the Exclusive rights free agents S Chris Banjo and TE Justin Perillo.
