Packers Players to Keep in 2016 | Ticket King Green Bay

Packers to keep in 2016
The Green Bay Packers season came to a heartbreaking end following another miracle hail mary, as they lost 26-20 in overtime on the road against the Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals game winning score was set up when Larry Fitzgerald pulled off one of the best catch and runs in recent memory. So now we head off into the abyss known as the off season. T.J. Bryce thought about doing a season review, but he decided against it because it would basically be about the same things he has been saying for three months, kind of like a broken record. No need to dwell on it. Let's just move on. Before we dive head first into what the Packers need to do this off season, let's play one big giant game of “Take em or Trash em” with the entire Packers offense. Now we understand some of these are easy, but we listed every player as part of this post.

Aaron Rodgers- Well of course. Take em.
Scott Tolzien- Been in the system for several years now and has improved each year. Won't be any bidding war for his services either. Take em.
Brett Hundley- Very high ceiling, but not quite ready yet to be the backup. Take em.

Running Backs
Eddie Lacy- He can't continue to play at this weight but it is nowhere near time to bail on him. Take em.
James Starks- One of the best backups in the league. Take em.
John Crockett- The Packers need to upgrade their third running back slot with a mid to late round draft choice. Trash him.

Wide Receiver
Jordy Nelson- Oh boy did this team miss him as we outlined in a write up recently. However, he will be 31-years-old coming off a torn ACL. They can't expect him to return to form, so a vertical threat replacement is top priority this offseason. Still, he will be in a Packers uniform next season. Take em. 

James Jones- Jones was signed as mere replacement to Jordy Nelson because they had no other options at the end of August. Trash em.

Randall Cobb- Randall Cobb now has suffered two major injuries. This one, a broken sternum, is not easy to fix. He will be back, that is if he can play again. Take em.

Davante Adams- This man had a nightmare 2015, and I think it is safe to say he is happy it is over. Still, it is way too early to give up on this 2014 2nd round draft choice. They need to get him right mentally. Take em.

Ty Montgomery- The 2015 third round draft choice got injured early in the season and never recovered. They still expect exciting things from him down the road. Take em.

Jeff Janis- The 2014 6th round draft choice finally got to show what he can do against Arizona. He could potentially be that deep threat the Packers need now. Take em.

Jared Abbrederis- A good route runner who finally got on the field the second half of the season. Take em. However like Janis, there is no guarantee he makes the 53 man roster next season.

Tight End
Richard Rodgers- The 2014 3rd round draft choice took major steps forward the second half of the season. Expect him to take even bigger steps next season. Take em.

Andrew Quarless- Goodbye, and good riddance. Trash em.

Justin Perillo- The former undrafted free agent showed nothing. Adios. Trash em.

Kennard Backman- The 2015 6th round draft choice played very little in 2015 but was seen as a long term project to begin with. Take em. Still, the Packers need to add another tight end in the draft.

Offensive Line
David Bakhtiari- The 2013 4th round draft choice has gotten better and better with each game. Take em.
Josh Sitton- Maybe the best interior lineman in the league. He returns for another season in 2016. Take em.
Corey Linsley- Quickly turning into one of the league's best centers. Take em.
T.J. Lang- A good solid professional. Take em.
Brian Bulaga- The Packers can't continue to rely on the injury prone Bulaga long term. But still, they have nobody else at the moment. Take em, for now.
Lane Taylor- A good dependable backup on the interior. Take em.
J.C. Tretter- The Packers supersub along the offensive line. Can play all five positions. Take em.
Josh Walker- Was in over his head. The Packers can do better. Trash em.
Don Barclay- Tries as hard as he can, but at the end of the day, he just isn't very good. Trash em.

Special Teams
Mason Crosby- One of the best in the business. Take em.
Tim Masthay- He has had a nice run as the punter in Green Bay, but you can tell his leg is starting to decline. Trash em.
Brett Goode- Went on IR. Getting up there in years. Trash em.
