The first wave of NFL free agency is over for this season with most of the biggest available names now signed to new teams. The Green Bay Packers have said goodbye to some long tenured players while adding premium free agents like Xavier McKinney and Josh Jacobs. The Packers have several key players with contracts that expire after the 2024 campaign. Here is a look ahead to the Packers potential free agents in 2025. The emphasis here is on players who start or play a significant role on the team as of now and will be unrestricted free agents next offseason.

Packers Potential Free Agents in 2025: QB Jordan Love

The biggest potential free agent as of now is quarterback Jordan Love. GM Brian Gutekunst has already indicated that the team is eager to work out an extension with the former first round pick out of Utah State, but they cannot sign him until one year after his last extension which was last May.

The Packers are confident Love is their next franchise quarterback. They will likely sign him to a lucrative new contract before the start of training camp. Expect a contract worth between $40 and $50 million per season. It’s highly unlikely Love will reach free agency next offseason, but as Packers fans discovered with Aaron Jones, a deal isn’t done until it’s done.

RB A.J. Dillon

Few people expected A.J. Dillon to return to the Packers for the 2024 season, but he did sign a team-friendly, one-year deal last week. That means he will hit the free agent market again next offseason.

The former Boston College star bet on himself taking this contract. He will likely be the Packers RB2 again unless Jacobs suffers an injury. Whether the Packers will want him back again in 2025 depends on his performance in the upcoming season.

Packers Potential Free Agents in 2025: C Josh Myers

Center Josh Myers has been a disappointment since joining the team in 2021. The former Ohio State star never lived up to his second-round draft status.

Myers needs a good 2024 season if he hopes to sign a second contract with the Packers. That will mean he must be more consistent as a pass blocker and much better as a run blocker. It’s entirely possible Gutekunst will select a center to compete with Myers in this year’s draft.

DL Kenny Clark

Kenny Clark enjoyed one of his best seasons in 2023 and will look to earn a new contract this year. The Packers could always extend Clark at any time if they are looking to free up more cap space for the 2024 campaign.

The Packers will also look to see how well he fits in with Jeff Hafley’s new defense which features a four-man front. Clark will turn 29 in October so age may be a factor in Gutekunst’s decision whether to re-sign the UCLA alum.

Packers Potential Free Agents in 2025: DL T.J. Slaton

T.J. Slaton may not get a lot of attention as a nose tackle, but he enjoyed a solid 2023 season while starting all 17 games for the Packers.

The University of Florida product made a career-high 50 tackles last season and does a good job of occupying blockers especially on running plays.

Like Clark, the front office will be eager to see if Slaton adjusts well to Hafley’s new defense before signing him to a second contract.

CB Eric Stokes

Eric Stokes’ career has been derailed by injuries the past two seasons. He missed the final eight games of 2022 with foot and knee injuries and then played just three games in 2023.

Gutekunst has to decide whether to exercise Stokes’ fifth-year option this offseason. He likely will not, due to the uncertainty surrounding the Georgia product after all the injuries he’s suffered.

Can Stokes return to the fine form he showed as a rookie in 2021? How well he plays in 2024 will be a key factor in the team’s decision to retain Stokes or let him go after next season.

Packers Potential Free Agents in 2025: LB Isaiah McDuffie

Isaiah McDuffie may get a chance to start in 2024 depending on how well he plays and whether the Packers bring in another linebacker to compete with him.

The former Boston College star enjoyed his best pro season in 2023. He started eight games and finished second on the team with 86 total tackles.

McDuffie lacks ideal size for the position but he’s smart and anticipates well. He also has experience playing under Hafley who served as his head coach in his final year in college.
