While we spent the last few days looking at unrestricted free agents whom Pro Football Focus thinks fit best with the Green Bay Packers for 2018, we are now shifting our focus back to players who were with the team in 2017.

Today, we’re looking at where the Packers’ UFAs would fit best, according to PFF. Green Bay has just nine unrestricted free agents by our count (there is some uncertainty about whether Ulrick John is restricted or unrestricted, so we excluded him), and PFF listed seven of those players in their free agency guide for the offseason.

Let’s look at where these players might be logical fits for next year and whether the fits make sense.
OLB Ahmad Brooks: Baltimore Ravens

Brooks makes sense in Baltimore, who still run a productive 3-4 defense under DC Dean Pees. Terrell Suggs still keeps racking up the sacks at age 35, making his first Pro Bowl since 2013 after posting an 11-sack season. Grand Valley State’s Matt Judon had a nices second season (his first as a starter), posting eight sacks. Brooks would make sense as a backup edge rusher to rotate with Suggs as Judon and 2017 rookie Tyus Bowser come along.
S Morgan Burnett: Tennessee Titans

The Titans have a solid pair of starting safeties in Kevin Byard and Jonathan Cyprien. Byard had a breakout year, being named first-team All-Pro after picking off eight passes and breaking up 16. Cyprien and backup Da’Norris Searcy make a solid pair at strong safety, however, so unless the Titans were to move Burnett to a full-time slot safety (like the Eagles did with Malcolm Jenkins), it’s hard to see how Burnett would get much playing time.

Schematically, the Titans’ defense is a bit up in the air. Dick LeBeau has retired, and if he were still around it would be an easy transition for Burnett to go from a Dom Capers defense to playing for LeBeau. Former Packers safeties coach has been mentioned as a possible DC candidate for new head coach Mike Vrabel, however, and if that happened it would make it a natural transition for Burnett.
DT Quinton Dial: Dallas Cowboys

Dial could come back to Green Bay to pitch in as a rotational backup, much the way he did in 2017. He has played most of his career as a 5-tech and three-tech tackle, but PFF sees Dallas as the ideal landing spot for him. There, he could back up starting tackle Tyrone Crawford, though he has a smaller frame (6’4”, 295) than Dial’s 6’5”, 315. The five-tech spot seems to be his best position, so Dial might be best suited to a team that plays more of a base 3-4 than the Cowboys, who remain a 4-3 team, or the Packers, who barely use base at all anymore.
G Jahri Evans Green Bay Packers
CB Davon House: Green Bay Packers

See the pieces from Friday (on the Packers’ offense) and Saturday (on the defense) for our discussions of these two players’ potential returns to the Packers.
WR Jeff Janis: Seattle Seahawks

The Packers were never able to get much of anything out of Janis from a receiving perspective, but Seattle’s offense seems to be a simpler one for a player with great physical tools but unrefined route-running skills. Think about Paul Richardson in Seattle — he’s a burner who had a big year in 2017 by posting 16 yards per catch thanks to eight deep ball receptions for 296 yards and three touchdowns. Janis likely wouldn’t have the same level of playing time or production, but he could function in a similar deep-threat role for Russell Wilson and company.
TE Richard Rodgers: Pittsburgh Steelers

Rodgers was relegated to the second or third tight end spot for much of the 2017 season, but had a couple of big catches late in the game against the Panthers after Aaron Rodgers’ return. In the past, the Packers loved to run him into the flat as a safety valve, much to fans’ dismay due to his distinct lack of agility or yards after the catch ability.

For the Steelers, Rodgers might be able to play a similar third tight end role behind Vance McDonald and Jesse James, and his ability to line up at any position — in-line, slot, or fullback, as well as special teams — at least make him a useful player for someone.

Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen is a three-time Pro Bowler … and now a two-time NFL Man of the Year finalist.

Olsen, Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt and Baltimore Ravens tight end Benjamin Watson on Sunday were announced as the finalists for the award named after NFL great Walter Payton that recognizes community service.

The winner will be announced Feb. 3 at the NFL Honors program in Minneapolis.

Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen, recovering from a broken foot, meets and signs autographs for faithful fans for a September appearance at a Family Dollar in University City. Some of the fans explained that his work off the field is one reason they admire him.

Olsen was up for the award last year when Arizona receiver Larry Fitzgerald and Giants quarterback Eli Manning shared the honor.

Veteran linebacker Thomas Davis became the Panthers’ first Man of the Year winner after the 2014 season.

Olsen played in only seven games this season after breaking his foot in a Week 2 win against Buffalo. He is the first tight end in NFL history to post three consecutive 1,000-yard receiving seasons.

Olsen started Receptions for Research through his foundation in 2009 after his mother battled and survived breast cancer. The program has distributed more than $3.5 million since its inception.

Olsen and his wife, Kara, established the HEARTest Yard Fund in 2013 after tests revealed their unborn son, T.J., had a rare congenital heart condition called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome.

The program provides families of babies with congenital heart disease with assistance for in-home and private nursing care, as well as physical and speech therapy.

The Olsens announced in November the expansion of the HEARTest Yard with a new cardiac neurodevelopmental program – the first and most comprehensive such program in the Southeast.

After learning he was a finalist Sunday, Olsen announced on Twitter he was launching a Man of the Year match. Olsen said he and his wife will match the first $100,000 through Feb. 4 to support families at Levine Children’s Hospital.

Watt was named one of Sports Illustrated’s Sportspersons of the Year after raising more than $37 million in three weeks for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts in Houston.

Watson, who went to high school in Rock Hill, has led efforts to combat human trafficking and violence against the poor.

Wholesale San Francisco 49ers Jerseys Cheap China Free Shipping

The San Francisco 49ers will aim for a playoff berth next season, and with it could come an intriguing schedule possibility. If the 49ers are able to win the NFC West, Levi’s Stadium could itself hosting the 49ers in a playoff game on Saturday, January 5, 2019, and then Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines play in the college football national championship game on Monday, January 7.

There are quite a few people who would laugh at the notion of Michigan appearing in the national title game next year. Ohio State fans would dominate that group, but plenty of other folks likely feel the same way. Michigan finished the 2017 season 8-5, with three straight losses to close out the season. They lost at No. 5 Wisconsin, at home to No. 9 Ohio State, and then in the Outback Bowl to South Carolina.

It was not an inspiring finish, and people have questioning Jim Harbaugh’s future in Ann Arbor. But, SB Nation college football analyst Bill Connelly could see a bright future heading into the 2018-19 college football season. Back in November, coming off their loss to Wisconsin, Connelly wrote about how they were not far off from expectations, and they were building toward what could be a drastically improved 2018 season.

I don’t know much about college football, but I know Bill knows it as well as anybody out there from an analytical perspective. There are no guarantees in a selection system that is rather flawed, but the possibility is out there.

On the other hand, we’ve got the 49ers, coming off a 6-10 season, but entering 2018 with a ton of optimism behind Jimmy Garoppolo. A division title would be a huge step forward, but the NFC West is in flux. I am not holding my breath for a division title, but I think expectations are high enough to not be totally shocked if it comes to fruition.

If that did happen, it would make for an interesting week at Levi’s Stadium. The stadium was selected a couple years back to host the 2018-19 college football title game on Monday, January 7. While that date is locked in, a potential 49ers playoff game would depend on the 49ers final standing. If they were to win the division and not get a bye, they would play on Saturday, January 5. If they were to win the division and get a bye, they would play on either Saturday, January 12, or Sunday, January 13. If they claimed a wild card berth, they would not host a playoff game.

Imagine a 49ers game on Saturday, followed by the national title game on Monday? The field conditions for the title game would be a major storyline coming amidst a 48 hour turnaround time for the field crew.

This is all wild speculation for at least the next eight or nine months. But when the season is over and we have a long wait ahead of us, wild speculation is what we’ve got!
