    Trey Flowers would be a good addition.

    I will say what I like in response to the discussion in this thread.

    As to Lawrence and Flowers, they're both excellent plays. I don't expect either to make it to free agency. And both would mean a pretty dramatic shift from how we are using edge talent under Pettine.

    That's fine, although I don't see what Rodgers being a Prima Donna has anything to do with the discussion. But if you say so...:rolleyes:

    Let's just call it a preemptive measure in order to prevent others from possibly straying away from the subject at hand. ;)

    Enough of the prima dona diversion. If I hear another word of it, so help me, I'll stop this car and come back there. Then I'll merge this thread with the prima dona thread.

    I like this list WAY better than the OP's. Everyone is 27 years or younger, on their first contract. No huge major injury issues. The OP's list doesnt really get me going. Matthieu has been injured. D-Lawrence will stay in Dallas. Golden Tate is old.

    I don't have the time to really dig into free agency, but I like the thought of Jesse James, Anthony Barr, or Adrian Amos in a packers uniform.

    I also echo some other posters and their want of a veteran OT or OG to come via free agency. A starter or proven depth.

    I'm all ready for a resigning of Muhammad Wilkerson, FA signings of both Dante Fowler and a Shaquil Barrett or Anthony Barr for the DL/Edge guys and switch this defense over to a 4-3... Wilkerson, Daniels, Clark, and Fowler on the DL with Adams, Lowry, and Looney as backups with one high draft pick. Use Martinez as our ILB and Barrett / Gilbert with Fackrell / Perry as our current OLBs with a before the 4th rounder OLB. That is a quick way to get our front 7 to be a strength for us.

    Safety concerns are another obvious choice to get fixed via free agency... Honey Badger could be a decent addition, but come on ... there is only one player that this defense should go after if he is healthy. Earl Thomas would be a great pickup and be a similar one to getting Woodson in here. He would immediately make the FS position one of strength and could teach our youth. He has been a part of the legion of doom and would definitely push the group to head that way.

    We aren't going to sign an OT in free agency because they are too damn expensive, but we could sign a guard or two to increase competition in camp to see who starts. OT will need to be addressed early in the upcoming draft. Probably within the first 3 picks we have.

    There are a couple FA TE's to be... but they will be tough to come by... Ebron and Cook will probably signed by their current teams and Eifert is injured alot (which means he'd fit in perfectly for us lately).

    Getting a #2 WR is imperative this offseason... thru FA, the draft, or what we currently already have. Allison could have the inside track, but coming off a major injury will hurt. The current rookies will need to improve greatly over the offseason to take that next step. We should definitely draft a WR within our first three picks. Would love to see Harry to fall into our laps. Brown in the second would also be a great pick. Not too much in the FA market for WR's outside of say Tate and Gordon with a handful of other possibles.

    My 3 FA signings would be, but we also need a few more on the offensive side (RG, TE, WR#2???)

    1. Fowler or Clowney (if he doesn't resign)
    2. Barrett or Barr
    3. Earl Thomas

    Yeah I agree with that last part too, but I just don't see the options when I look through the 2019 FA's.

    Jordy Nelson
    Greg Jennings
    Devante Adams
    Randall Cobb

    I think the last time they took a WR in the first was Javon Walker. Packers love taking WRs in the 2nd. I think the first rd will be used to add play makers to the defense. My dream scenarios are getting AJ Green or TY Hilton
