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.

Cheap Minnesota Vikings Jersey Online Free Shipping Wholesale

The Minnesota Vikings have been riding thin at running back ever since first-round rookie Dalvin Cook was injured in Week 4, but they are back to three running backs after claiming one on Monday.

The Vikings claimed second-year back Mack Brown from the Washington Redskins.

With the addition of Brown to the roster and S Andrew Sendejo returning from his one-game suspension, the Vikings needed to make room on the roster and waived draft pick Rodney Adams, a slot receiver, and C Cornelius Edison, who was just promoted from the practice squad to the active roster in advance of Sunday’s game because of injuries on the offensive line.

Brown, 5-11 and 213 pounds, was originally signed by the Houston Texans as a rookie free agent in 2015 and has appeared in 12 games with the Redskins, nine last year and three this year, with 16 carries for 111 yards and one touchdown.

He appeared in 49 games with the Florida Gators, where he made two starts and rushed for 805 yards and four touchdowns on 210 carries from 2010-14.

Since Cook tore his ACL in Week 4, the Vikings have had two running backs, Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon, on the roster, in addition to fullback C.J. Ham, who can act as a running back in a pinch. They also have RB Bronson Hill on the practice squad.
