As always, free agency is a big part of constructing next year’s team. Who to sign, who to let walk, how to balance cap space against team needs and who can we replace in the draft. Ted Thompson is not a big mover in free agency and looks to sign his players first. The reasoning behind this is that you know your players much better than you know players from another team, which makes you more likely to be able to predict their work ethic and how they will perform under a big new contract.
However, TT did sign Julius Peppers this past offseason and he made a big difference to our defense, becoming a team captain for the post-season. Will Ted sign anyone this offseason? Well, there are definitely some interesting names out there. In this first part of a three part series, we ask Packernation who the Packers should pursue if they hit the open market.
So what do you think? Which of the following free agents (some of which may not actually become available) should the Packers pursue? Or do you have somebody else in mind…maybe you think the none of these guys is worth pursuing…if so just click “OTHER”. Make as many selections as you like below and see how your choices stack up against others in Packernation.
