Stay or Go? Green Bay Packers Edition

The Green Bay Packers have a roster that is ready to win now, with the resigning of some veterans, and developing the young talent that they have already drafted this team could definitely be looking at the post season next in 2019. 

Clay Matthews, Linebacker, Go

Clay Matthews has been apart of the Green Bay Packers ever since he was drafted in 2009. Entering his 10th season in the league Matthews before this year was one of the most consistent pass rushers in the NFL, but as father time catches up Matthews consistency had hit a slump. After only totaling a career low 3.5 sacks in 2018 Matthews future with the team is in jeopardy. I think Matthews will walk in free agency, but with the Green Bay packers having such a need at the Edge position a reunion is definitely possible.

Randall Cobb, Wide Receiver, Go 

Randall Cobb over the last few seasons has been derailed by injuries and inconsistent play which are two things that a veteran in the league trying to make a team cannot have happen. After the Green Bay Packers General Manager, Brian Gutekunst, released long time Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson we see that he is will not keep around a veteran who is not playing up to par even if they are a fan favorite. With that being said there is no way Randall Cobb is in the Green and Gold in 2019, unless it is for a super cheep contract.

Bashaud Breeland, Cornerback, Stay 

Breeland, who was picked up in September after a failed physical with the Carolina Panthers, provides the secondary who has young promising duo with Jaire Alexander and Kevin King a insurance plan if one of them goes down with injury. Breeland will garner interest from other NFL Clubs if he walks, last offseason he was going to sign a 3 year deal with the Carolina Panthers.

Muhammed Wilkerson, Defensive Lineman, Stay 

The Green Bay Packers need a lot of help defensively within the front seven. Last offseason they brought in Wilkerson on a one year prove it deal, but after being hurt and only getting to really compete in two games this season another one year deal is very likely. There has been reports of the two sides having mutual interest in each other and a one year contract that allows Wilkerson to prove that he can get back that Pro Bowl and All Pro level of play will definitely be beneficial for both sides.

Jake Ryan, Linebacker, Stay 

Ryan suffered a torn ACL in 2018 and missed the season, therefor with him still being a young player with potential to be a thumper in the trenches that the Packers lack at the linebacker position. Even if he does walk the Green Bay Packers would be remiss if they do not at the very least try to bring Ryan back.
