The Green Bay Packers are going to have more decisions than ones concerning Aaron Rodgers this offseason. The new League Year starts next week, and several players from the 2022 team will become unrestricted free agents. Some of them may return. Others, undoubtedly, will find other teams. Still others may see their futures tied to Rodgers’ decision (i.e., Randall Cobb and Marcedes Lewis).
While the Packers have freed up plenty of salary cap space through contract restructures and Aaron Jones’ pay cut, it is clear that not everyone will (or should) be back. Three of the biggest names hitting free agency at their respective positions are Allen Lazard, Robert Tonyan, and Adrian Amos. Here, we take a look at what they are projected to receive on the open market.
Green Bay Packers Free Agent Wide Receiver Allen Lazard
Believe it or not, Allen Lazard is one of the biggest names on the free agent market. Sure, players like Odell Beckham Jr. and Juju Smith-Schuster may come off the board first, but this free agent class is not deep. Spotrac has Lazard’s market value set as three years for $37.5 million, or an annual salary just north of $12 million. Bleacher Report predicts that he will get slightly more: three years and $39 million.
Green Bay Packers Free Agent Tight End Robert Tonyan
Robert Tonyan hits free agency with plenty of question surrounding his name. Aaron Rodgers mentioned him as one of the players he wants to keep playing with on The Pat McAfee Show. The question is: how much will he cost? Spotrac has his current market value as one year and just over $5 million. This would be twice as much as the Cincinnati Bengals gave Hayden Hurst last year. Bleacher Report does not believe that any team will pay twice as much for Tonyan as the Bengals paid for Hurst and predicts he gets a one-year deal worth $4 million.
Green Bay Packers Free Agent Safety Adrian Amos
The safety position is one that is probably among the weakest on the Green Bay Packers’ current roster. Due to the lack of depth, some may be tempted to want Adrian Amos back. However, he had his worst season in Packers uniform last year and Spotrac lists his market value as three years and $20.6 million. That does not seem likely. Bleacher Report agrees and predicts Amos to receive a one-year prove-it deal worth $5.5 million.
