5 Biggest Needs the Packers Have Yet to Address This Offseason
Morry Gash/Associated Press

The 2014 free agency period in the NFL started a little over a week ago, and the Green Bay Packers have been surprisingly busy. Normally, under the watch of general manager Ted Thompson, the team is usually very quiet during the initial stages of this process.

The Packers have re-signed a number of their own players during that time, a list which includes cornerback Sam Shields, defensive lineman/outside linebacker Mike Neal, nose tackle B.J. Raji, tight end Andrew Quarless and running back James Starks.

But the big splash in free agency happened when the team signed defensive end Julius Peppers, formally of the Chicago Bears. Shortly after that signing, the Packers also signed defensive tackle Letroy Guion, who played the first four years of his NFL career with the Minnesota Vikings.

The team has also lost a few players during free agency as well. It started when safety M.D. Jennings signed with the Bears, after the Packers did not tender him a contract offer while he was a restricted free agent.

Then late last week, center Evan Dietrich-Smith signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. And recently the Packers saw wide receiver James Jones sign with the Oakland Raiders.

The Packers still have a number of needs to be addressed, whether in free agency or in the 2014 NFL draft.

I am going to list five of them in this slideshow.
