2. Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers finally had enough for Aaron Rodgers and shipped him out of town last year. All things considered, they're better off without him. While he's one of the top quarterbacks of his generation, he wasn't seemingly interested in working on becoming the best one. He instead devoted his time to listening to whatever conspiracy theory was trending and blaming everyone but himself for the team's inability to get over the hump in the playoffs.

If you need proof that Rodgers was holding the Packers back, you should listen to his comments about players not being all in during the offseason. He wanted his teammates to be fully committed while he spent most of his time away vacationing. Fortunately for the Packers, they had a replacement in place, Jordan Love. They decided that he was ready to take over, so they traded Rodgers to the New York Jets.

While Love got off to a slow start to the 2023 season, he progressively got better when he got a better grasp of the offense. By the end of the year, the former first-round pick was playing like a top-10 quarterback. Now, Green Bay must ensure he's in a position to build on his first year as a starter. Fixing the defense will be their top priority but the offense could also use upgrades. The center position in particular should get a boost.

Josh Myers has been the starter the past two years but he's struggled, giving up eight sacks and 41 total pressures in that span. He hasn't been any better in the running game, posting Pro Football Focus grades of 53.5 and 55.2 in 2022 and 2023, respectively. If the Packers don't outright move on from Myers, they should at least bring in competition. That's where Luke Fortner would come in handy.
