Projecting the 2020 Green Bay Packers roster ahead of training camp.
Even in the craziness that is 2020, NFL teams and rookies are making their way to training camp. The Green Bay Packers have all reported to camp as of July 28th, and fans got a first look at quarterback Aaron Rodgers and company entering the facilities.
After a tumultuous offseason and with uncertainty still ahead, it’s nice for fans and analysts to see players reporting. Green Bay’s window is closing with Rodgers at quarterback, and having the season so they can make another run would be awesome.
But, there aren’t any guarantees. Players have already begun opting out of the season, and the Packers saw their first with wide receiver Devin Funchess opting to sit in 2020 rather than play.
That creates a tough scenario for the Packers receiver room, which wasn’t addressed at all in the 2020 NFL Draft. It will be an interesting camp for that group, as many are hoping to see a jump from a couple of year three guys, including an undrafted free agent.
With rosters looking a little different this year (the expanded practice squad will help things), it’s time to make some predictions regarding the roster for the Green Bay Packers in 2020. Here’s an early look at what the roster might look like when the season is projected to kick off in September.
Special Teams: 3 (3/53)
K Mason Crosby
P J.K. Scott
LS Hunter Bradley
The special teams group is a very straightforward one as the page turns to 2020. Mason Crosby signed an extension and remains one of the more consistent kickers in the NFL right now. J.K. Scott has continued to improve as the punter for Green Bay, and Hunter Bradley shouldn’t have competition.
