The Green Bay Packers find themselves in a very good position as they head into the 2024 NFL season.

With a roster full of young talent, the team has the potential to be a legitimate Super Bowl contender, building on their unexpected success in 2023.

The Packers’ young players have gained valuable experience, and the team looks poised to make another strong playoff push.

However, there remains a notable need for reinforcement on the defensive side of the ball, particularly in the secondary.

After signing Xavier McKinney in NFL free agency, the Packers still have a need alongside him. They could rely on unproven young talent, or they could try to make an aggressive move.

One intriguing option still available is former Denver Broncos star safety Justin Simmons.

According to a list compiled by Sportsnaut’s Matt Johnson, which highlights the top remaining free agents and potential destinations, Simmons could be an ideal fit for the Packers.

Simmons, a four-time All-Pro, is widely regarded as one of the best safeties in the NFL. Despite his impressive credentials, he remains unsigned, potentially presenting an opportunity for the Packers to secure his services at a reduced cost with training camp approaching.

Strengthening the safety position is crucial for the Packers, and Simmons stands out as the best available option.

Adding a player of his caliber could provide the defensive boost needed for Green Bay to have an even better chance of making a deep playoff run in 2024.

Acquiring Simmons now, particularly if he can be signed at a discount, would be a strategic move to solidify the Packers’ defense. A duo of Simmons and McKinney would be among the best in the entire NFL.
