Position Listing
Damarious Randall
Randall finished the 2016 season with 39 tackles and 9 passes defensed, including three interceptions, in 10 games played.

Randall missed six games due to a lingering groin injury during the 2016 campaign, and he was often limited due to the issue when he did play. In the playoffs he added 12 tackles and three passes defensed, including an interception. After Sam Shields (concussion) was placed on IR just one game into the season, Randall was expected to be Green Bay's top cover corner, a job he eventually lost to Ladarius Gunter. Randall will look to improve and stay healthy in 2017 as Green Bay tries to improve upon what was the NFL's 31st ranked pass defense.

Davante Adams
Adams caught all three of his targets for 16 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's NFC championship loss to the Falcons.

Adams suited up Sunday despite carrying an ankle sprain that kept him sidelined throughout the practice week. According to ESPN's Rob Demovsky, Adams admitted his ankle caused him pain during the entirety of Sunday's loss, when he played just 40 percent of Green Bay's offensive snaps. Despite that reduced role, Adams still managed to score the Packers' first touchdown of the game with a two-yard reception to begin the third quarter. On the whole, Adams' ability to find the end zone elevated his fantasy value significantly this season, as only teammate Jordy Nelson had more than Adams' 12 receiving scores. The third-year pro finished with 75 total catches on 121 targets for 997 yards across 16 regular season appearances, which saw him supersede Randall Cobb as Green Bay's No. 2 receiving option behind Nelson. While that status puts Adams' stock on the rise heading into next season, so too should the fact that he'll be playing in the final year of his current contract.

James Starks
Starks (concussion) has been waived by the Packers with a non-football-injury designation, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Starks was only able to take the field for nine games this season, ending the year on concussion protocol. The 30-year-old running back rushed for a measly 145 yards on 63 carries while recording in 19 receptions for 134 yards and two touchdowns in those nine contests. Starks' role on offense quickly diminished due to injuries and the emergence of Ty Montgomery as the new quick-paced, pass-catching target out of the backfield. The veteran now heads into free agency after spending the past seven seasons in Green Bay, the only place he has called home over his NFL career. It remains unseen how much Starks has left in the tank, especially when you factor in his injury plagued 2016 campaign, but he could find his way onto a team in need of a third-down back.

Concussion - Questionable for the start of training camp
Bryan Bulaga
After being evaluated, it was determined that Bulaga did not suffer a concussion in Sunday's NFC championship game against the Falcons, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Bulaga's forced exit from Sunday's game was one of many for the Packers. With the 2016 season now in the books for Green Bay, Bulaga will enter the offseason with a clean bill of health.

Beau Sandland
Sandland signed a reserve/future contract with the Packers.

Sandland finished the Packers' season on the practice squad, so he is already familiar with the team personnel. He'll battle for a reserve spot on the Packers' depth chart this offseason.

Herb Waters
Waters joined the Packers' 53-man roster Wednesday as a cornerback, Rob Demovsky of reports.

After he was unable to make the team out of training camp, Waters landed on the Packers' practice squad, from which he's been practicing as a cornerback since Week 2 and identified as a member of the positional group since Week 5. Because Makinton Dorleant (knee) was placed on IR on Wednesday and the statuses of Damarious Randall (knee) and Quinton Rollins (concussion) are up in the air, Waters could play a key role in the coverage schemes during Sunday's wild-card game versus the Giants.

Kenny Clark
Clark is poised for an elevated workload in 2017 due to Letroy Guion's four-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Along the Packers' defensive front last season, Mike Daniels was the workhorse, earning 64.3 percent of the defensive snaps, while Guion (43.5) and Clark (32.5) were the only other D-lineman to surpass 20 percent. With Guion out of commission for the first quarter of the upcoming campaign, Clark is the candidate to earn an uptick in work, potentially blowing away his season high (42 percent in the NFC championship game) regularly from week to week. If the preceding comes to pass, Clark, a 2016 first-round pick, should build upon a 21-tackle rookie year.

Blake Martinez
Martinez recorded 69 tackles, including a sack, and four passes defensed, including an interception, while playing in 13 games in 2016.

The Packers' fourth-round pick in 2016, Martinez stepped up as a starting middle linebacker who often was in charge of calling the defense. A sprained MCL limited him in a few games and forced him to sit out three tilts. He appears to be a promising young player for a defense that struggled on the year, finishing the season ranked 22nd in total defense.

Letroy Guion
Guion (suspension) had the final two years of his contract restructured Friday, Rob Demovsky of reports.

The Packers aren't giving up on the defensive tackle after he was handed a four-game suspension earlier this week. It's his second suspension in the past three seasons, which left some to question whether the veteran would remain in green and gold for the upcoming year. Under his restructured deal, Guion will collect two offseason roster bonuses later in the season. He'll be allowed to participate in offseason workouts, practices and preseason games, as the suspension will not take effect until Week 1 of the regular season.

Suspension - Suspended until Week 5 of the 2017 season
Jahri Evans
Evans signed a contract with the Packers on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Evans has spent the first 11 years of his career with the Saints, starting 169 of 176 games in that span. He'll likely fill in for TJ Lang, who left the Packers to sign with the Lions back in March. Evans will likely start at guard along with Lane Taylor in 2017.

Sam Shields
Shields (concussion) was released by the Packers on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Shields was the first to relay the news of his release via his personal Instagram account, but the transaction had been widely anticipated for a while, as the cornerback is still recovering from a concussion suffered in Week 1 of the season. With Shields' long-term health a significant question mark and the 29-year-old due $8 million and a $500,000 workout bonus for 2017, it was an easy decision for the Packers to make him a cap casualty. Shields has stated that he wants to keep playing, but given his history with concussions, it's unclear if he'll latch on with another team.

Trevor Davis
Davis caught three passes (on six targets) for 24 yards and a touchdown in 11 appearances as a rookie this season.

Davis also returned nine punts for 115 yards and three kickoffs for 64 yards. Drafted in the fifth round for his dynamic speed, Davis failed to carve out a meaningful offensive role. In fact, all three of his receptions came in Green Bay's Week 8 loss to the Falcons. Despite his lack of involvement, Davis will hope his year of experience will help him earn more action next season.

Jason Spriggs
No Updates
Lane Taylor
Taylor injured his knee during Sunday's game against the Falcons and his return is questionable.

The severity of Taylor's knee issue is currently unknown, but he may be able to return following the halftime break.

Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Geronimo Allison
Allison settled his misdemeanor marijuana possession charge Tuesday, the Associated Press reports.

The charge followed a September traffic stop in which Allison was stopped for speeding. After it was downgraded to an ordinance violation and an accompanying $330.50 fine, he may still be subject to league discipline under the NFL's policy for substances of abuse. However, neither the league nor the Packers has commented on the matter at this time.

Mike Daniels
Daniels recorded 33 tackles, including 4.0 sacks, and a pass defensed in 16 games played in 2016.

Daniels has consistently been the Packers best defensive lineman for the past few years. He was a key cog in a Green Bay run defense that ranked eighth in the NFL and he was the best pass rushing lineman on the team. He hasn't sat out of a game in the past four seasons and will look to continue his run of consistently good play in 2017.

Randall Cobb
Cobb caught six passes (on nine targets) for 82 yards in Sunday's NFC championship loss to the Falcons.

Cobb, who was Green Bay's only fully healthy starting wideout, led the team in receiving yards Sunday, finishing the playoffs with an impressive 18/260/3 stat line from three appearances. That production came after Cobb missed three regular season games due to hamstring and ankle problems, which limited him to just 60 receptions on 84 targets for 610 yards and four touchdowns. Besides his six-game, injury-shortened 2013 campaign, those numbers marked Cobb's worst season since his rookie year. Along the way, Davante Adams passed Cobb as the Packers' No. 2 wideout behind Jordy Nelson. While the potency of the team's passing game leaves plenty of opportunities for Cobb to make an impact, he'll enter next season coming off a down year that saw his fantasy stock slide.

Derek Hart
No Updates
Justin McCray
McCray signed a contract with the Packers on Wednesday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.

McCray has spent time with the Titans as a practice squad player but has never appeared in an NFL game. The young guard will provide some extra competition as the Packers look to find a replacement for former starter T.J. Lang, who signed with the Lions in free agency.

Ty Montgomery
Head coach Mike McCarthy said he thinks Montgomery (ribs) has the ability to serve as a lead back, reports.

Drafted as a wide receiver, Montgomery averaged a robust 5.9 yards on 77 carries while spending much of last season in the backfield, also catching 44 of 56 targets for 348 yards. His effectiveness as a multi-purpose weapon isn't in question, but it's fair to wonder if he can hold up to a true lead-back workload. He was limited by complications from sickle-cell trait for part of last season, and he only took double-digit carries in one regular-season game. Montgomery spent last offseason primarily working with Green Bay's receivers coach, but he'll almost exclusively work with running backs coach Ben Sirmans this offseason. While the Packers still plan to add at least one or two players to the backfield to compete with Montgomery and Christine Michael, it's quite possible the converted wide receiver could enter Week 1 as the team's top running back. Such a role wouldn't ensure him of double-digit carries each week, as the Packers likely would use at least one other player to help with the rushing workload in a pass-oriented offense. There's been no suggestion that Montgomery's rib injury from the playoffs will impact his offseason program.

Ribs - Questionable for the start of training camp
Brett Goode
No Updates
Davon House
House agreed to a one-year deal with the Packers on Tuesday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

House was cut by the Jaguars prior to free agency beginning but will now return to the team that he spent his first four NFL seasons with. The cornerback likely will take on a bigger role in Green Bay the second time around, as the team is thin in the secondary and recently let defensive backs Micah Hyde and Sam Shields walk. House accrued 60 tackles and four interceptions in 16 games with the Jaguars two years ago, but only 17 tackles and no interceptions in 16 games in 2016.

Jordy Nelson
Nelson (ribs) caught six of nine targets for 67 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 44-21 NFC Championship loss to the Falcons.

Nelson caught both of his targets for 42 yards on the first drive, but was held to just three receptions for 22 yards on his next six targets before getting into the end zone from three yards out late in the third quarter. The veteran wide receiver did well to even be out there after fracturing at least two ribs against the Giants two weeks ago. He should be fully healthy by the start of the 2017 campaign.

Christian Ringo
Ringo signed his exclusive-rights free-agent tender from the Packers on Thursday, Rob Demovsky of reports.

The Packers signed Ricky Jean-Francois in free agency to account for Letroy Guion's upcoming four-game suspension, but Ringo will surely be a part of the mix more often, at least during the first quarter of the 2017 campaign . After spending his rookie year on the practice squad in 2015, Ringo appeared in eight games last season, yet he earned just 7.3 percent of the defensive snaps and two snaps overall on special teams, which translated to two solo tackles and one forced fumble. A modest increase in usage is unlikely to impact his relevance in the IDP realm.

Marwin Evans
Evans recorded six tackles across 16 games played in 2016.

Evans barely saw any playing time on defense despite all the injury woes the Packers' secondary endured. Instead, he logged the majority of his snaps on special teams, where he was a mainstay from Week 3 on. With Micah Hyde (shoulder) headed to the open market, Evans figures to have a slight chance of carving out a reserve safety role this summer.

Antwan Goodley
Goodley signed a reserve/future contract with the Packers on Monday, ESPN reports.

Goodley is a second-year player out of Baylor who finished the season on the Packers' practice squad. He's yet to record a catch in the NFL and likely won't compete for anything more than a depth receiver role this summer.

Joe Callahan
Callahan didn't appear in a game his rookie season.

After an impressive preseason showing, Callahan bounced around the league from Green Bay to New Orleans to Cleveland before re-joining the Packers in December. He didn't appear in a game for any team, though, and while the former Division III quarterback is under contract with the Packers through 2017, he's a long shot from achieving anything more than No. 3 status as long as Brett Hundley is around.

Kevin King
The Packers selected King in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 33rd overall.

King is a massive corner at 6-foot-3, 200 pounds, but he's also one of the most athletic players in the draft. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.43 seconds at the Combine, adding a 39.5-inch vertical, 6.56-second three-cone, and 3.89-second 20-yard shuttle. As a starting member of a pass defense that allowed just 5.7 yards per pass and intercepted 19 passes compared to just 13 passing touchdowns allowed in 2016, King has production in his favor, too. The Packers pass defense was a major problem in 2016, but King's length and athleticism should help.

Jacob Flores
No Updates
Joe Kerridge
Kerridge logged 20 offensive snaps across eight games played in 2016, rushing once for zero yards.

Kerridge went undrafted out of Michigan last spring before heading to Washington for training camp. He didn't survive final cuts though and ultimately wound up on the Packers' practice squad in early October. However, he was promoted to the active roster in November when the team needed running back depth and subsequently played in every game from Week 10 on, primarily on special teams. Now set to hit free agency once again, he'll likely land somewhere that's not Green Bay considering the team's starting fullback, Aaron Ripkowski, is under contract for another two years.

Ricky Jean Francois
Jean-Francois signed a one-year, $3 million contract with the Packers on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Jean-Francois visited a few teams after being cut by the Redskins last week before signing with the Packers. He had a career high 32 tackles, including 1.5 sacks, in 2016, and he'll likely see significant playing time along the defensive line with Green Bay.

Josh Jones
The Packers selected Jones in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 61st overall.

A college safety, Jones has the athleticism necessary to get a look at corner in Green Bay. At 6-foot-1, 220 pounds, Jones ran a 4.41-second 40 at the Combine, adding a 37.5-inch vertical and 132-inch broad jump. If not corner, Jones should be useful insurance behind Morgan Burnett at safety.

Clay Matthews
Matthews will not require surgery on the shoulder injury that afflicted him during this past season, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports.

Matthews separated his left shoulder after taking a borderline hit from Eagles guard Allen Barbre during Green Bay's Week 12 win. Although Matthews didn't miss a game because of the problem, it noticeably impacted his playing time and production, evidenced by his mere one sack through the Packers' final five regular-season outings. Fortunately, though, Matthews won't require surgery this offseason, which should enable him to participate in OTAs and minicamp, thus avoiding having to rehab instead.

John Crockett
Crockett (shoulder) is an unrestricted free agent after not receiving a free agent tender from the Packers, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports.

Crockett spent the entire 2016 season on injured reserve due to his shoulder injury. He has only nine career rushing attempts and isn't likely to have much of a role with any team in 2017.

Shoulder - Questionable for the start of training camp
Morgan Burnett
Burnett finished the 2016 season with 93 tackles, including 3.0 sacks, and nine passes defensed, including two interceptions, in 15 games played.

Burnett was one of Green Bay's best defenders in 2016, playing in 91.9 percent of the team's defensive snaps. Defensive coordinator Dom Capers moved Burnett around more than in past seasons and Burnett responded with a career high in sacks while posting the second best passes defensed and interception numbers of his career. The Packers finished the season ranked 22nd in total defense and 31st in pass defense, and they'll look to improve around Burnett and bounce back in 2017.

Aaron Ripkowski
Ripkowski rushed 34 times for 150 yards and caught nine passes (on 10 targets) for 46 yards while scoring three touchdowns in 16 games played during the 2016 regular season.

Ripkowski played 15 games as a rookie last season, earning just one touch along the way, but after the team's primary ball-carrying options fell victim to injuries this year, the former sixth-round pick enjoyed an expanded role. Despite played the fullback position, Ripkowski proved to capable running between the tackles and catching occasional passes as well. While his lost fumble during Green Bay's NFC championship defeat will surely leave a sour taste in his mouth, Ripkowski can take pride in the role he carved out this season.

Quinten Rollins
Rollins finished the 2016 season with 45 tackles and eight passes defensed, including an interception.

In what was his second season, Rollins improved on the numbers from his rookie year while also being thrust into a larger role. When Sam Shields (concussion) was placed on IR after just one game, Rollins stepped into the starting corner role for much of the season. Despite missing five of the team's 19 games, he played in 68.2 percent of Green Bay's defensive snaps, up from just 30.7 percent last year. He'll look to continue his improvements as the Packers look to better their pass defense, which was ranked 31st in the NFL in 2016.

Lucas Patrick
No Updates
Jordan Tripp
Tripp re-signed with the Packers on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports.

After joining the Packers in mid-December last season, Tripp appeared in the team's final two regular-season contests as well as all three postseason games but logged just five tackles along the way. He'll likely remain in a rotational role at inside linebacker next season and see the majority of his action on special teams.

Kentrell Brice
No Updates
Ha Ha Clinton-Dix
Clinton-Dix finished the 2016 season with 80 tackles, including 0.5 sacks, and seven passes defensed, including five interceptions, in 16 games played.

In his third season, Clinton-Dix was arguably the Packers best and most consistent defender. He played in 99.9 percent of the team's defensive snaps and was named a second-team all pro. The Packers' defense struggled on the year but Clinton-Dix was one of the few bright spots. Look for him to be a key contributor for Green Bay once again in 2017.

Mason Crosby
Crosby converted 26 of 30 field goal attempts and 44 of 47 extra point tries en route to 122 points during the 2016 regular season.

Crosby has now made at least 81 percent of his field goal attempts in four straight seasons since the disastrous 2012 campaign in which he converted merely 63.6 percent of the time. With the help of four double-digit scoring performances, Crosby finished tied for 14th league-wide in points, which came in spite of the Packers' offensive struggles during the middle of this season.

Richard Rodgers
The Packers signed Martellus Bennett and Lance Kendricks to join Rodgers in the tight end corps, reports.

Rodgers worked behind Jared Cook for most of last season, and while Cook won't be back in the picture, the competition for snaps has only gotten tougher. Bennett will presumably serve as the No. 1 tight end and play the vast majority of snaps, leaving Kendricks and Rodgers to compete for whatever work is leftover.

Kyle Murphy

Jake Ryan
Ryan (shoulder) finished the 2016 season with 82 tackles and three passes defensed while playing in 14 games.

Ryan went from playing in 24.7 percent of defensive snaps as a rookie in 2015 to playing 54.1 percent of snaps this past season. He improved as a coverage linebacker, defending three passes (plus three more in the playoffs) after he didn't defense a single pass as a rookie. The former fourth-round pick has been a decent player for the Packers and will look to improve as a starting caliber inside linebacker leading up to( the 2017 season.

Shoulder - Questionable for the start of training camp
Brett Hundley
Hundley finished the 2016 season 2-of-10 passing for 17 yards and an interception.

Hundley saw just 22 snaps in 2016, only entering the game when the game was decided and the team didn't want to risk injuring starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers. While Hundley's stats look poor on the surface, the small sample size and poor quality of the reps makes it difficult to judge the second-year player's performance. Green Bay has shown confidence in Hundley as a backup and he'll likely have the same role in 2017.

Don Barclay
Barclay re-signed with the Packers on a one-year, $1.3 million contract Friday, Rob Demovsky of reports.

He's proven to be a versatile asset to the Packers' offensive line, which makes him valuable, particularly given the departure of J.C. Tretter earlier in the week. Barclay figures to be the main backup on the o-line.

Christine Michael
The Packers signed Michael on Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

After the departure of Eddie Lacy (ankle), the Packers don't have a legitimate three-down option out of the backfield, but Christine Michael will nonetheless serve as a depth option to wide receiver-turned-running back Ty Montgomery (ribs). Of course, the front office may address the position during April's NFL Draft, which could relegate Michael to third on the depth chart. In any case, he's averaged 4.3 YPC and made seven end-zone visits during his four-year career, so he can produce when called upon.

Lance Kendricks
Kendricks signed a contract with Packers on Saturday, Adam Schefter of reports.

Kendricks returns home to Wisconsin just a day after the team reached an agreement with fellow tight end Martellus Bennett. The Packers let veteran Jared Cook walk in free agency but are quickly filling the void as Kendricks, Bennett, and Richard Rodgers all figure to be integral parts of Aaron Rodgers' arsenal. Last season with the Rams, Kendricks recorded 50 receptions for 499 yards and two touchdowns, marking the best year of his career. The details of the contract are still unknown.

Don Jackson
Jackson (knee) signed his exclusive-rights contract tender with the Packers on Wednesday, ESPN's Jason Wilde reports.

By officially putting pen to paper Wednesday, Jackson joins a shallow running back corps comprised of only Ty Montgomery (ribs) and Christine Michael. However, the Packers likely aren't done adding more talent and Jackson could find himself competing for a roster spot this summer if the team spends a high pick or two on runners from this year's draft class.

Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Joe Thomas
Thomas, an exclusive-rights free agent, signed his contract tender with the Packers on Monday, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports.

Thomas led the Packers' inside linebacker corps in playing time last season due to injuries to Jake Ryan (shoulder) and Blake Martinez. However, he is the odd man out when all three are healthy and figures to open the 2017 season in a backup role.

Derrick Mathews
Mathews was released by Green Bay on Monday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Mathews has never played in an NFL game and was a long shot to make the Packers' roster. With the team's linebacking corps being as healthy as it is, Mathews was no longer needed as a camp player.

Max McCaffrey
The Packers signed McCaffrey from their practice squad Saturday.

A member of the organization since Dec. 20, McCaffrey has been promoted to the active roster due to a host of injuries within the receiving corps. There's a very real chance he's among the Packers' inactive list for Sunday's NFC championship game, but even if he isn't, he'll be hard-pressed to make his presence felt within the offense.

Aaron Rodgers
Rodgers completed 27 of 45 passes for 287 yards with three touchdowns and an interception while rushing four times for 46 yards in Sunday's 44-21 NFC championship game loss to Atlanta.

The Rodgers-led Packers offense was shut out in the first half, and couldn't break the ice until he found Davante Adams from two yards out to make it 31-7 with 9:19 left in the third quarter. He later added touchdowns to Jordy Nelson and Jared Cook, but that production was much too little too late. Rodgers was intercepted by Ricardo Allen in the first half, and had another pick reversed by the replay official on his second scoring drive. While the star quarterback did a great job of running the table to get his team to this point following a 4-6 start, there's no doubt the better team came out on top here.

Jermaine Whitehead
The Packers opted to release Whitehead on Monday, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Whitehead was just promoted from the practice squad prior to Week 8, so his stint with the active roster was short-lived. The Packers were attempting to add depth to their thin backfield, as they subsequently promoted fullback Joe Kerridge from the practice squad in a corresponding roster move.

Jay Elliott
Elliott signed a one-year, $1.6 million extension with the Packers on Monday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.

Green Bay is able to keep him around for cheap, so bringing back his pass-rushing skills and special teams presence is an easy decision. With Julius Peppers headed to Carolina, expect Elliott to have the opportunity to win over more playing time next season if he can stay healthy.

Montravius Adams
The Packers selected Adams in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 93rd overall.

Adams was a productive member of a very strong Auburn defense this year, and he solidified his prospect profile with a good showing at the Combine. At 6-foot-4, 304 pounds, Adams posted a 4.87-second 40-yard dash along with a 108-inch broad jump and 7.62-second three-cone. He should contribute meaningful snaps right away, even if off the bench.

Demetri Goodson
Goodson (knee) is unlikely to be ready for the start of the 2017 season, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.

Goodson tore his ACL and MCL in November, which gives him a tight timetable for a return to form by the start of next season. The Packers are light at the corner position currently and will be hoping for a quick recovery from Goodson.

Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
LaDarius Gunter
Gunter finished the 2016 season with 54 tackles, two forced fumbles, and a team-high 12 passes defensed in 16 games played.

After playing just eight defensive snaps as an undrafted rookie in 2015, Gunter was in on 83.4 percent of Green Bay's defensive snaps in 2016. The Packers' top three cornerbacks entering the season, Sam Shields, Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins all missed time due to injury, which allowed Gunter to carve out a role as the team's top cover corner. He struggled when matched up with some of the better receivers in the NFL but for the most part he impressed in the large role he was thrust into. He'll be looking to build off what was a breakout 2016 campaign in 2017.

Jacob Schum
Schum signed his exclusive rights free agent contract with the Packers on Wednesday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.

In his second full year in the NFL, and first with the Packers, Schum averaged 43.2 yards per punt, with a long of 65 yards, and had 19 punts downed inside the 20-yard line, all of which were career highs. It's unclear if the Packers will bring in any competition for Schum in the offseason or training camp, or if he'll simply be given the job in 2017.

David Bakhtiari
The Packers injury report for Friday can be described as the "Killer B's." The last names of four of the five players on it start with that letter.

Wide receiver Jarrett Boykin (groin) has been ruled out while linebacker Sam Barrington (hamstring) is questionable and tackle David Bakhtiari (back) and defensive tackle Josh Boyd (knee) are probable.

The only exception is defensive tackle Datone Jones (ankle), who is questionable.

Kyler Fackrell
Fackrell finished his rookie season with 18 tackles, including 2.0 sacks, a forced fumble, and a pass defensed in 13 games played.

Fackrell didn't see the field much in 2016, playing just 15.6 percent of Green Bay's defensive snaps. He showed some promise as a pass rusher and could see an increased role in 2017 if the team loses Nick Perry or Julius Peppers, both of whom will be unrestricted free agents when the league year ends.

Martellus Bennett
The Packers signed Bennett on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Shortly after word leaked that negotiations between the Packers and tight end Jared Cook had deteriorated, general manager Ted Thompson arguably upgraded the position with the addition of Bennett. Although Bennett served as the Patriots' No. 1 TE for much of last season with Rob Gronkowski (back) sidelined for much of it, the former still racked up 55 receptions (on 73 targets) for 701 yards and a career-best seven touchdowns. Exchanging Tom Brady for Aaron Rodgers shouldn't hinder Bennett's volume in the slightest, even with Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams, and Randall Cobb on his side.

Dean Lowry
Lowry recorded eight tackles and two sacks across 15 games during his rookie season in 2016.

The Packers took Lowry in the fourth round of last year's draft as he's a great fit for a 3-4 defense as a five-technique defensive end. Although it took him some time to acclimate to the professional game, Lowry posted sacks in back-to-back games during Week 14 and Week 15, which represented the first and second of his career, respectively. However, with starters Kenny Clark and Mike Daniels under contract through 2019, Lowry likely doesn't have chance of cracking the starting lineup anytime soon.

Nick Perry
Perry is expected to return to the Packers in 2017,'s Ian Rapoport reports.

Perry started 12 games for Green Bay in 2016, where he posted career highs in sacks (11), tackles (35) and passes defended (4). Bringing back their top pass rusher was said to be a "key priority" for the Packers, an organization that typically leans towards grooming its talent in-house.

Jeff Janis
Janis finished this season with 11 receptions (on 19 targets) for 93 yards and a touchdown in 16 games played. He also rushed twice for 38 yards and another score.

Janis' size and speed combination has made him an alluring commodity since entering the league as a seventh-round pick in 2014, and although this season was his most productive yet, the Saginaw Valley product remains a sparingly-used target in Green Bay's offense. Until he becomes more consistently involved, Janis figures to remain on the periphery of fantasy radars, but the fact that 2017 is the final year on his current contract could motivate Janis to make a bigger impact next season.

Corey Linsley
Linsley underwent offseason ankle surgery and is expected back in mid-May, Rob Demovsky of reports.

Linsley's surgery was reportedly to clean up loose particles that were lingering from a 2015 high ankle sprain. Though he's expected to be healthy sometime in May, the Packers may choose to hold him out until training camp to avoid risk of re-injury. Linsley missed the first half of the 2016 season due to a hamstring injury, and the Packers will hope to have him ready for Week 1 in 2017.
