Packers Face Tough Decisions

John KuhnWith the season officially over and free agents looming what moves do you think Ted Thompson should make?

Here is a list of players he will have to make decisions about:

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
TE, Andrew Quarless
NT, B.J. Raji
S, Sean Richardson (currently on IR)
RB, James Starks
QB, Scott Tolzien

Restricted Free Agents

OLB, Andy Mulumba
G, Lane Taylor

Exclusive-Rights Free Agents

S, Chris Banjo
TE, Justin Perillo
Out of the 18 players listed K, Mason Crosby, OLB, Mike Neal, OLB, Nick Perry, NT, B.J. Raji, RB, James Starks and S, Chris Banjo are must get signed in my opinion. LS, Brett Goode who injured his knee late in the season will either be put on season ending IR or let go because LS, Rick Lavato came in and did a good job so maybe they will stick with the rookie. I believe S, Sean Richardson’s career is over with the second neck injury it will be a long shot he ever plays again and Thompson does not sign players who have the type of injury he sustained this time around. QB, Scott Tolzien will be interesting to see if Thompson feels like paying for another year they have a lot of time and money tied up in him so maybe they give him one more year so QB, Brett Hundley has another year to mature even though he showed great poise in his rookie year and looked to have a promising future. JC Tretter stepped up and showed he is the new fill in at any spot on the line which could spell the end for OT, Don Barclay. As for the rest they are all wild cards from my point of view.

The draft will be interesting this year and pretty much be set by who Thompson gets signed and who walks, I like to try and predict who will be their top three picks but that must wait for another post.
