Will the Packers move on from their consistent scoring threat?
The Green Bay Packers have several major contracts to look at this offseason. Many choices deal with offensive players on a unit that has declined this season. Left tackle David Bakhtiari is a name many fans will keep an eye on in the offseason. Quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers and Jordan Love are players Packers fans and analysts figure that one of whom might move on next season.
Matt Schneidman with The Athletic wrote about the current Packers roster and speculated who might be back for the 2023 season. The Packers insider suggested the team might not bring back an aging starter who has scored many points over the years. Schneidman thinks the Packers move on from kicker Mason Crosby:
The future Packers Hall of Famer just doesn’t have the same leg power anymore.
It’s hard to imagine another kicker in Green Bay. Crosby has been putting the ball through the goalposts since 2007. In that time, Crosby has made 385 field goals and 722 extra points. That’s 1,877 points that he’s scored for the Packers. Crosby has made an incredible 81.2 percent of his field goals and 97.3 extra points.
However, Crosby has declined this season. Especially from long range. Crosby has missed all two of his field goal attempts of 50 yards or more this season. The Packers could look to find his replacement next season. Crosby is currently the Packers’ all-time leading scorer. It won’t be easy for the Packers to replace the longtime kicker.
