5 Green Bay Packers players probably we won't see on the team in 2023

The Green Bay Packers could look different next season with many changes potentially on the way.


While Aaron Rodgers’ future with the team remains a mystery, many other players on the roster don’t yet know where they will be playing in 2023.


Which five players might have played their final snap in Green Bay?

#5. Adrian Amos, Safety

Replacing Adrian Amos won’t be easy, but the Packers may need to do it this offseason. Amos has played more defensive snaps than any others Packers player over the past four seasons, not missing a single game. He has been a reliable starting safety for the Green Bay from the moment he swapped Bears for Packers in 2019.


However, Amos turns 30 in April and is coming off an inconsistent season, earning the lowest PFF grade of his career. With limited salary cap space to make moves in free agency, the Packers may turn to the draft to find their next long-term starter at safety. Alabama’s Brian Branch could be a target with the 15th overall pick.

#4. Mason Crosby, Kicker

Mason Crosby has played every game for the Green Bay Packers since the 2007 season, a franchise-record 258 straight games, and 281 if the playoffs are included. In that time, he has booted through 395 of his 485 field-goal attempts and 733 of his 753 extra-point tries. Nobody in the history of the world has scored more points for the Packers than Crosby’s 1,918.


Many kickers don’t last 16 games with the same team. Crosby has kicked in Green Bay for 16 years. He will deservedly be inducted into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame in the future, there’s no doubt about that. However, all good things must come to an end, and this could be time for the Packers to make a change at kicker.


Mason Crosby turns 39 in September. Will the Packers be willing to pay him the contract he wants? One area where Crosby’s play has declined is on kickoffs. Crosby can still play, and re-signing him isn’t a bad idea.

#3. Robert Tonyan, Tight End

Tonyan earned the nickname “Baby Kittle” during his 11-touchdown 2020 season.
He was a go-to target for Aaron Rodgers that year, dominating in the red zone.
Tonyan had shown potential in previous years but had been unlucky with injuries.


The former undrafted free agent has been unable to replicate his 2020 dominance in the two seasons since. Tonyan only caught two touchdowns in eight games in 2021. He suffered a season-ending injury in the Week 8 victory over the Cardinals, more awful injury luck. Season 2022 he finished with 53 catches, a new career-high, putting up 470 yards but just two touchdowns.


Tonyan made plays along the way, but struggled for consistency. With a strong tight end class in the 2023 NFL Draft to choose from, the Packers may decide to find their next long-term starter in the early rounds rather than re-signing Tonyan.

#2. Marcedes Lewis, Tight End

A first-round draft choice in 2006, Lewis has played 17 seasons in the NFL, featuring in 251 games with 221 starts. After spending the first 12 years of his career with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Lewis has become a key player on offense for the Packers over the past five seasons.
He is also a leader in the locker room and a player Aaron Rodgers loves to play alongside. Lewis is a free agent this spring and turns 39 in May. 

And who knows, maybe Lewis would follow Rodgers to a new team like the New York Jets or Las Vegas Raiders. Lewis has been such an important player for the Packers, but his time in Green Bay could be over.

#1. Randall Cobb, Wide Receiver

You will struggle to find a more popular player in Green Bay than Randall Cobb.
He is a great person, gives his all for the team, and has provided some of the most memorable moments of the past decade. Cobb spent the first eight seasons of his career with the Packers, before spending one season at both the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans.


The Packers traded for Cobb before the start of the 2021 season, and he quickly reestablished his connection with Aaron Rodgers. Cobb made 62 receptions in the past two years, of which an impressive 40 went for first downs.


However, Cobb will enter his age-33 season in 2023. But Cobb is set to become a free agent in March. Will he continue to play?
