The Green Bay Packers have been more active in Free Agency than usual in 2017. They brought back some veterans on one-year deals and shuffled the deck at the tight end position, bringing in both Martellus Bennett and Lance Kendricks. They endured a lot of losses too, though, which could come back to bite them both this season and at this time in 2018.

Potential 2018 free agency losses

The defensive back unit could be particularly affected by free agency in 2018. The Packers brought back Davon House on a one-year contract this offseason, so if he works out, he could leave for richer pastures. Morgan Burnett would signify a more significant loss, though; the safety has developed into a consistent, key cog alongside Ha Ha Clinton-Dix at the safety position.

The team's biggest asset may also be in danger -- young and talented receivers. Davante Adams would be the most significant name to hit free agency, but Jeff Janis could also be a goner. Tight end Richard Rodgers is also scheduled to be a free agent in 2018, but he's more expendable to the Packers after they signed two tight ends this spring.

Potential targets

Assuming the team needs to bring in yet another cornerback in 2018 free agency to replace Davon House, they could try and poach Xavier Rhodes from their rivals in the Minnesota Vikings. Trumaine Johnson and Vontae Davis would be other top options for Green Bay, as well as Prince Amukamara and Johnathan Joseph if the team is interested in more cost effective options.

Inside linebacker has also been a troublesome spot for the Packers, even though the position has become somewhat devalued in recent years. David Harris is an interesting veteran, but his career will clearly be on the downside by then; the same could probably be said for Paul Posluszny. An intriguing option in 2018 free agency could be Vontaze Burfict, who is an extremely talented inside linebacker for the Cincinnati Bengals, but comes with some baggage after being labeled a dirty player by others in the league.
