Having a capable backup QB like Matt Flynn who knows the team and the offense is invaluable. Flynn has had to fill in here and there for Aaron Rodgers (especially in 2013 when Rodgers missed nine games with injury). He'll likely get offers from various clubs who'd love to add a guy with starting experience at the QB position. Scott Tolzien, the team's third-string QB, is also a FA but Flynn is more capable -- and keeping him over Tolzien is a no-brainer.
Cobb had a stellar season in 2014. The 2014 Pro Bowler was overshadowed early in the year by fellow Packer receiver Jordy Nelson. Cobb's dynamic and versatile play garnered much-deserved attention as the season went on. Cobb had 91 receptions for 1,287 yards and 12 TDs. He also rushed out of the backfield 11 times for 37 yards, and had over 1,300 yards from scrimmage. He's the third highes- rated free-agent WR on Pro Football Focus' position-specific FA tracker. Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson are huge parts of the offense, and Rodgers alone could carry this team to the playoffs, but Cobb's presence frees up the other receivers. Cobb's skillset and versatility also provides a dynamic target for Rodgers, one he'd like to keep around.

The standout right tackle was finally healthy for a full season in 2014. Bulaga had his share of injury woes the past two season, but his health in 2014 allowed the talented lineman to help turn the Packers' offensive line into the perhaps the best unit Aaron Rodgers has played behind in his seven years as the starting QB. Bulaga is Pro Football Focus' top FA tackle in this offseason's crop, and his presence helped to change the character and strength of the team's o-line That's reason enough for the franchise to keep Bulaga in the fold.

The Packers have three CBs that will be FAs in March. Williams is 31, making him one of two FA corners that's at least 30. That said, he's one of the highest-rated FA cornerbacks on Pro Football Focus' position-specific 2015 FA tracker. Other than in his rookie year in 2007, Williams has had at least two interceptions in each of his eight pro seasons. Tramon has been a constant playmaker in the Packers' defensive backfield since his rookie year. He's made some big plays in the playoffs, and has also been a playoff goat at times, but Williams is a good player and still has enough in him to continue to perform throughout 2015 and beyond.

Guion had some ups and downs in 2014, but he was a huge presence on the interior of the d-line. He helped take some attention off the edge rushers, and it resulted in as formidable a d-line as ever in the Aaron Rodgers era. Guion was one of two big-time free-agent signings for this team from the 2014 offseason on the defensive front along with Julius Peppers. While his first season in Green and Gold produced mixed results, he made enough of an impact and is a good enough player that it would be wise to bring him back at a reduced rate.
