The Green Bay Packers have developed into a pretty good overall team this off-season. Their defense looks stacked at nearly every position. The offensive line is developing some nice depth. Not to mention the bonafide stars that are getting healthy. They have one of the best running back duos in the NFL. Robert Tonyan is back and practicing. The wide receivers have developed into an extremely competitive group. Even with all of that being said, there still remains a number of free agents who could help this team. Here are a few that we can’t believe are still available.
DE Trey Flowers
Trey flowers has struggled to stay on the field lately. He has only appeared in seven games each of the last two seasons. That being said, he is a depth signing that could go along way for any team. Being only 29 years old, it is still surprising no team has taken a chance on him yet.
The Packers have yet to identify a solidified third pass rusher. Kobe Jones and Kingsley Enagbare have certainly shown flashes. However, having a veteran presence to bridge the gap for a season would make a ton of sense. The asking price would likely be well within the Packers’ range as well.
TE Eric Ebron

Eric Ebron is a nine year veteran that has been extremely consistent throughout his career. Except for his rookie season, and 2021 (which was a down year), he has recorded at least 50 receptions and 500 yards receiving every year in the NFL.
That type of production would be massive for the Packers’ tight end position group. Tyler Davis has been a disappointment so far. We are still not sure if Robert Tonyan will be ready for week one. That leaves Marcedes Lewis and Josiah Deguara as our week one starters. Ebron would be a big addition.
S Landon Collins
In a recent article for Bleacher Report, NFL writer Ian Wharton listed Landon Collins as the second-best NFL free agent under 30 left on the market. He listed the Green Bay Packers as one of the three best fits for Collins, along with the Chicago Bears and Pittsburgh Steelers.
With the extremely thin depth at safety for the Packers, Collins makes a ton of sense. Last season, Collins had 81 tackles, two interceptions, and a forced fumble while playing in 13 games for the Washington Commanders.
DE Jason Pierre-Paul
Jason Pierre Paul spent the last four years with Tampa Bay. In those four years he averaged just over 8 sacks a season, 14 games started a season, and 42 total tackles a season. It is very surprising we are just a few weeks away from the start of the season and he is still unsigned.
If not Trey Flowers, this could be the type of signing would be a perfect bridge / depth player between Gary / Smith and Kingsley Enagbare / Kobe King.
