The “packers record” is a football team. The Packers have won 13 division titles and 15 conference championships, but they are more well known for their achievements in the postseason. They have won 8 NFL Championships (including 2 Super Bowls) and 4 Super Bowl MVPs.

Six additional players from the Green Bay Packers’ roster from last season have been confirmed to return for the 2022 season.
Six of the Packers’ exclusive rights free agents signed tenders prior to the start of the offseason program on Monday, April 18, according to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky. Inside linebacker Krys Barnes, offensive lineman Yosh Nijman, edge rusher Randy Ramsey, wide receiver Malik Taylor, center Jake Hanson, and tight end Dominique Dafney are among the re-signed players.
Before the start of the new league year on March 16, the Packers had signed six of their eight exclusive rights free agents, leaving just safety Henry Black and edge rusher Chauncey Rivers unsigned free agents. Players with less than three NFL seasons may be offered exclusive rights tenders, which are one-year contracts at the league’s minimum pay. While the player must still sign the tender in order for it to become official, there is little use in their doing anything else.
According to Over the Cap, the Packers’ exclusive rights free agents will cost the team $5.3 million in cap charges, with five of the six receiving $895,000, the minimum wage for a player with two seasons of service. Hanson, who has just one year of banked time on the active roster with the organization and will earn $825,000 in compensation for the 2022 season, is the sole exception.

Barnes & Nijman Project for Key Roster Spots
The Packers lucked out in 2022 with at least two starter-quality players eligible for ERFA tenders. A team’s ERFA list isn’t always brimming with high-level talent, and more often features players who are best suited to fill out backup and depth roles, but the Packers lucked out in 2022 with at least two starter-quality players eligible for ERFA tenders.
Barnes is the first and most evident. Although De’Vondre Campbell emerged as one of the Packers’ top defensive playmakers in 2021, the 24-year-old middle linebacker was still their third-leading tackler (81) and made his fair share of impact plays — four pass deflections, two fumble recoveries, and one sack — over his 16 games and 13 starts. While Campbell’s return on a long-term deal may create issues about Barnes’ long-term future, having his expertise back in the fold for 2022 would surely benefit the Packers defense.
Nijman, who emerged from obscurity in 2021 to start eight games at left tackle when David Bakhtiari and Elgton Jenkins were both injured, is the other incredible bargain for the Packers at the ERFA cost. In Week 3 of last season, he earned his first career start and was required to hold his own against Nick Bosa, overcoming a rocky start and almost totally neutralizing San Francisco’s best pass rusher throughout the second half of the Packers’ win.
Overall, Nijman allowed only three sacks in 356 pass-blocking plays in 2021, which is impressive considering he had only played 14 offensive snaps before to the season. At the very least, he’s proven himself as a reliable swing tackle capable of handling blindside blocking duties.
The Packers still have seven unsigned free agents.
With less than two weeks before the 2022 NFL draft, the Packers have five more unrestricted free agents besides Black and Rivers who have yet to be signed. One of them is veteran edge rusher Whitney Mercilus, although he announced his retirement from the NFL earlier this month and is unlikely to be persuaded otherwise. Cornerback Kevin King, defensive lineman Tyler Lancaster, right tackle Dennis Kelly, and wide receiver David Moore are among the unsigned free agents.
While it’s possible the Packers may let all seven of the remaining players sign with other teams, there’s a case to be made for re-signing a couple of them. Kelly didn’t have the finest playoffs for the Packers, failing to hold up against the 49ers after being unexpectedly handed the starting right tackle job, but he’s still an experienced depth piece who could be kept for the same reason for the veteran minimum. Even if the Packers want to select a new right tackle, having some inexpensive experienced guidance on hand for a fresh youngster wouldn’t hurt.
A handful of free agents from the Packers have already signed with other teams. Here’s a rundown of who’s left and where they’ve landed:
Minnesota Vikings’ Za’Darius Smith, EDGE
Denver Broncos, Billy Turner, RT
Minnesota Vikings’ Chandon Sullivan (CB)
IOL: Chicago Bears, Lucas Patrick
Houston Texans’ Isaac Yiadom, CB
Cleveland Browns, Corey Bojorquez, P
San Francisco 49ers’ Oren Burks, ILB
Chicago Bears’ Equanimeous St. Brown, WR
IDL: Houston Texans, Kingsley Keke (released in postseason, claimed off waivers)
Kansas City Chiefs’ Marquez Valdes-Scantling, WR
