4 free agents Packers missed out on thanks to Aaron Rodgers

Thanks to the Aaron Rodgers drama, the Green Bay Packers have been quiet in free agency.

The Green Bay Packers have not been very active this offseason, and it is apparent why. Longtime quarterback Aaron Rodgers wants to be traded to the New York Jets, and the Packers have not been able to make any significant additions to their group because of it.

Now that free agency has been going on for a little over a week, the Packers have already missed out on some notable players who they could have signed if not for this Rodgers drama. As a result, let’s take a look at a few specific free agents who the Packers were unable to sign because of it.

The Packers could already have these guys if it wasn’t for Aaron Rodgers

4. Dalton Schultz

The Packers’ biggest objective this offseason is to improve their offense. Their scoring woes were a major reason for their struggles last season, and one player who they certainly could have used is tight end, Dalton Schultz. Yet, that ship has officially sailed, as Schultz is signing with the Houston Texans.

Schultz is coming off of a solid season with the Dallas Cowboys that saw him record five touchdowns, 577 receiving yards, and 57 receptions. There’s no question that the Packers could have used a player like him in their offense, but alas, it makes sense that he has opted to sign elsewhere given the Packers’ current situation with Rodgers.

3. Juju Smith-Schuster

When JuJu Smith-Schuster hit the free-agent market, he seemed like a perfect target for the Packers. After all, Green Bay clearly needs to improve at the wide receiver position, and bringing in a high-impact receiver like Smith-Schuster would have been a great way to make that happen. Yet, given the Packers’ current situation, the skilled receiver opted to ink a three-year, $25.5 million contract with the New England Patriots.

Smith-Schuster would have been a great weapon for the Packers and could have created magic with Packers QB Jordan Love. Yet, due to Rodgers, the Packers missed out on a player that they could have used to strengthen their offense in 2023. In 16 games last season with the Kansas City Chiefs, he had three touchdowns, 78 receptions, and 933 receiving yards.

2. Adam Thielen

When it was announced that the Minnesota Vikings released Adam Thielen, he immediately stood out as a free-agent target for Green Bay. After all, the Packers know him quite well, as he was a major part of their division rival’s core for nine seasons. Yet, with the Rodgers situation still ongoing, the 6-foot-2 receiver opted to join the Carolina Panthers.

Thielen could have been a great mentor for the Packers’ younger players as they begin their new era with Love as their QB. After all, he has 135 games of NFL experience and is a two-time Pro Bowler. With that, he was still effective last season, as he recorded six touchdowns, 70 receptions, and 716 receiving yards.

1. Jakobi Meyers

If Rodgers wanted to stay with the Packers, it likely would have helped their chances of landing top free-agent receiver Jakobi Meyers. Yet, the Packers’ messy situation with the future Hall of Famer led them to never being major players in the Meyers sweepstakes, and the 26-year-old ended up signing with the Las Vegas Raiders instead.

Meyers would have truly been the perfect addition for the Packers as they aim to become a playoff team again. However, without Rodgers, the Packers just did not stand out as an alluring landing spot for him, and it’s simply unfortunate. In 14 games this past season with the Patriots, the four-year veteran had six touchdowns, 67 receptions, and 804 receiving yards.
