The Green Bay Packers have quite a bit of work to do heading into the NFL offseason. Outside of the Aaron Rodgers situation, the franchise will need a way to improve the offense, fill holes on defense, and still find ways to improve the team from last year when they missed the playoffs. That is a tall task, but one that needs to be accomplished.
One sleeper area the team could look to improve is their pass-rush. Rashan Gary will be back, but he will be coming off of a torn ACL and no one truly knows how that will effect him. Adding a veteran pass-rusher could make a lot of sense for Green Bay.
Another defensive issue that the Packers will need to address is at the safety position. Adrian Amos is a free agent and Darnell Savage Jr. is not looking like a long-term fit either. That will be an interesting situation to watch as well.
Packers Connected To Intriguing Veteran Pass-Rusher In Free Agency
Robert Quinn could be an intriguing name to keep an eye on. SportsNaut recently linked him as a possible free agency target for the Packers this offseason.
Last season, Quinn split the year between the Chicago Bears and Philadelphia Eagles. He has been a consistent pass-rushing threat throughout his entire NFL career. If the Packers are interested in adding a veteran, Quinn could be an ideal fit at a reasonable price.

During the 2022 season split between the Bears and Eagles, Quinn ended up playing in 13 games. He racked up just 10 total tackles and one sack. Clearly, it was a down season and he will be looking to rebound in 2023.
Just one short year ago in 2021 with the Bears, Quinn amassed 18.5 sacks to go along with 49 tackles and four forced fumbles.
There is no question that signing Quinn is a bit of a risk for any team this offseason. Is age starting to catch up with him or will he be able to bounce back next season? Only time will tell, but the Packers certainly could be an intriguing landing spot for him in free agency.
