Packers Rumors: 3 Free Agents Green Bay Should Avoid This Offseason

The Green Bay Packers were only a few minutes away from reaching the Super Bowl this past season, and will be looking to upgrade their roster in free agency to ensure they get over that hump and get to the Super Bowl in 2016. However, the wrong signing could send them in the opposite direction. Here are the free agents Green Bay needs to avoid this offseason:

TE Jordan Cameron

Green Bay is looking to add a proven tight end, and Cameron will demand a high price tag even though he's had his share of injury problems. He only had 24 catches for 424 yards and two touchdowns this past season while dealing with injuries (and poor quarterback play), but he plays well enough when he's healthy to demand a salary out of the Packers' price range.

DT Terrance Knighton

Knighton has become one of the most dominant run-stoppers in the league, but the Packers are trying to get quicker on the defensive line, and his weight is a concern for them. He has already been fined $300,000 for missing weight markers with the Broncos, and Green Bay doesn't want that headache.

S Nate Allen

Green Bay needs help in the secondary, but in a weak free agency class at the position, Nate Allen is one of the better options. He should be entering the prime of his career at age 27 that will likely cause a team to overpay for his services even though he’s just not that good. Allen allowed a 106.2 passer rating, five touchdowns, and a terrible 17.5 yards per completion for the Eagles last season, making it clear that he’s not a consistent starting-caliber guy.
