Who To Keep on the Packers 2019 Roster | Ticket King Green Bay

Green Bay Packers tickets
With the Patriots 10-3 victory over the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl 52, the NFL off season is officially upon us.The first order of business for most teams is deciding who to keep and who to let go. Let’s play “Take em or Trash ‘em” for the Packers.

Clay Matthews/OLB- The “Claymaker” is one of the most beloved Packers ever. But he is a shell of his former self. Simply put, it’s time to let him go.

Randall Cobb/WR- The veteran wide receiver and one of the longest-tenured Packers, Cobb has been one of Rodgers’s favorite targets, when he is has been on the field, and “when” is the key word. Cobb has become injury prone, and with the young receivers they have to back up Davante Adams, bringing him back is simply not worth it.

Muhammed Wilkerson/DE- The Packers had high hopes for Wilkerson last off season when they brought him to Green Bay. He is an ideal fit in Mike Pettine’s defense and played his best years under Pettine in New York. Wilkerson suffered a torn ACL early in the season. Pettine returns as defensive coordinator, and so should Wilkerson.

Bashaud Breeland/CB- The Packers signed Breeland in mid-season to replace Davon House, and Breeland turned out to be a goldmine. The trio of young corners, King, Alexander, and Jackson, did not prove they can do it on their own quite yet, so Breeland’s return is a must.

Lance Kendricks/TE- Kendricks was brought to Green Bay to be the Packers reserve tight end. He has not been very effective. He also does not fit in Matt LaFluer’s offense. Time to let him go.

Robert Tonyan/TE- Tonyan was a 2018 un-drafted free agent, and Brian Gutekunst must have learned something from Ted Thompson about un-drafted free agents, because he hit pay dirt with Tonyan. Keep him.

Geronimo Allison/WR- A former un-drafted free agent out of Illinois, Allison has risen the Packers depth chart to become the new number two. He spent most of the season injured, but still should be brought back.

Reggie Gilbert/LB- Right now, the Packers lack depth at linebacker, and Gilbert will cost nothing. Bring him back, but there is no guarantee he will make the roster.

Kentrell Brice/S- The Packers need to rebuild their safety position from the ground up. Brice is a holdover from an outdated Dom Capers scheme. Time to let him go.

Tramon Williams/S- Mid-season, Williams converted to safety from corner back, both due to need and his diminishing skills as a cover man. But that didn’t pan out. Simply put, Williams needs to move on.  

Jake Ryan/ILB- Ryan, who tore his ACL in Training Camp, should return for one more go, as the Packers really don’t have anyone else inside next to Blake Martinez. Keep him. 

Marcedes Lewis/TE- The one tight end that actually fits the new offense. Lewis could be a mentor to the Packers younger tight ends, some of whom haven’t been drafted yet, but will be in May.
