Veteran defenseman is a perfect fit for Green Bay after his retirement

Excitement is sky high for the Packers heading into 2024. They have a great young collection of talent on the roster and have added to it this season.

Green Bay picked up both Josh Jacobs and Xavier McKinney in free agency before adding 11 more players in the 2024 NFL Draft.

They could fill a lot of holes in the roster, but you can never have enough talent on the team. A veteran defenseman out of retirement would be the perfect addition for the Packers at this stage of the offseason.

According to Jordan Schultz of Bleacher Report, former Baltimore Raven safety Tony Jefferson is coming out of retirement and plans to make plans for 2024.

It would be a great addition to an already renovated security room. The Packers gave McKinney a four-year, $68 million deal before adding Javon Bullard, Evan Williams and Kitan Oladapo in the 2024 NFL Draft. Adding a veteran like Jefferson to that group could pay big dividends.

Jefferson had nine years of NFL experience and has suited up for four different teams. In his career, he recorded 492 total tackles, 9.5 sacks and four interceptions.

He played a lot of football, both in the regular season and in the play-offs. Add to that the fact that he is 32 years old and would be the oldest player in the room.

Teams are always looking for experienced leaders and the perfect player fell into Green Bay’s lap.
