The offseason is here for the Green Bay Packers after another disappointing playoff finish.
What will that offseason hold? There are plenty of free agent decisions to be made with the Packers’ own players. Typically, other than the draft, that’s pretty much what the Packers’ offseason comes down to.
However, quarterback Aaron Rodgers seemed to suggest the team needed to find a way to get stronger this year in order to make another Super Bowl run, following the Packers’ latest playoff dud.
“I don’t think we need to rebuild. We need to reload,” Rodgers said.
“We’ve just got to make sure we’re going all-in every year to win. And I think we can take a big step this offseason.”
Those are an interesting choice of words.
Much is made every year the Packers don’t field a top-tier team of how the organization is wasting Rodgers’ prime. You could again make that argument this year.
The Packers’ defense ended up having a shortage of playmakers. The running game was often nonexistent.
Is this the year the Packers actually do something in free agency to really load up for a Super Bowl shot? As long as Ted Thompson is general manager, we highly doubt it.
I suppose we can dream though. Rodgers obviously is.
