Packers pick up fifth-year option on DL Kenny Clark

It is no surprise to anyone that the Green Bay Packers want their young defensive lineman back. According to Field Yates of ESPN, the Packers exercised Clark’s fifth-year contract option. Clark will be in Green Bay through the 2020 season.

A first-round pick in 2016, Clark has become one of the best, young defensive lineman in the NFL. Over the last two seasons he’s had 10.5 sacks, 14 tackles for losses and 17 quarterback hits.

The defensive front will look much different this season. They spent money on pass-rushers in free agency adding Za’Darius Smith and Preston Smith. Also, the Packers used their first pick of the 2019 NFL Draft (12th overall) on another pass-rusher, Michigan’s Rashan Gary.

The moves made in the off-season and the draft will no doubt help take pressure off Clark. Green Bay re-tooled their defense and will be looking for another big season from Clark.

Packers lose a pair of defensive backs

The Green Bay Packers took a minor hit to their defensive depth losing CB Bashaud Breeland and S Kentrell Brice. Breeland agreed to a one-year deal with the Kansas City Chiefs and Brice signed a one-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Losing Breeland hurts because he was a quality experienced veteran who the young corners looked up to. Jaire Alexander, Kevin King and Josh Jackson have a lot of potential but are young and inexperienced. Alexander established himself in his rookie year as the top corner in Green Bay. King has showed flashes but hasn’t been able to stay healthy. Jackson struggled much of his rookie season, but the Packers will be in good shape if all their young corners make a jump this season.

Tramon Williams is still the veteran leader and can help bring the young guys along.

As for Brice, he was a liability both in coverage and as a tackler. According to Pro Football Focus, Brice allowed a passer rating of 150.1 on 29 throws into his primary coverage and missed 12 of 57 tackle attempts last season.

Packers’ salary cap may be less than previously reported

The Green Bay Packers came into free agency with about $35 million in salary cap space. They’ve been active signing Adrian Amos, Za’Darius Smith, Billy Turner and Preston Smith. Also, Green Bay brought back Marcedes Lewis and Geronimo Allison.

Now, they may be in a difficult salary cap situation. According to Tom Silverstein, the Packers aren’t in as good salary cap shape as previously reported.

There is no doubt the Packers have improved, at least on paper. However, if the report is true, it will be difficult to bring in any other names in free agency.
