Reply to "2020 Free Agency Thread"

A couple of interesting tidbits:

On T Bryan Bulaga:

According to a source, the Packers have not had any talks with his agent since the season ended.

There’s plenty of time before the free-agent period begins, but if the Packers were eager to get him under contract they probably would have done so already. The team may be waiting to see how the CBA goes and whether they will have more salary-cap space than anticipated. 

It’s unlikely that outside linebacker Kyler Fackrell will return to the Packers.

The unrestricted free agent will be looking for more playing time after losing snaps to free agents Za’Darius Smith and Preston Smith last season. Fackrell’s sack numbers dropped from 10½ in 2018 to one in ’19.

Teams that dig deep will find that Fackrell had the second-best pressure rate (pressures per play) behind Za’Darius Smith, but his inability to finish will cost him some money in free agency.

Fackrell, a source said, is likely to sign a one-year deal with another team that will allow him to show what he can do with more playing time.
