The Green Bay Packers are still working through their starting offensive line for the 2022 season. They have consistently fielded one of the strongest lines in the NFL, but this year is different in that it presents some unique challenges.
Many are wondering what is going on with David Bakhtiari, who is still working with the rehab group this offseason after tearing his ACL in December of 2020. Not even Matt LaFleur knows whether Bakhtiari will be ready for training camp, as he dealt with multiple setbacks while trying to return to the field.
Left tackle is one of the most important positions on the field, especially when Aaron Rodgers is the quarterback. However, left tackle is not the only position up front where the Packers face a lot of uncertainty at left tackle, as right tackle is also a big question mark.
Billy Turner was released earlier in the offseason after starting 43 games over the last three years. Capable of playing either guard or tackle, Turner was very reliable and considered a Pro-Bowl caliber player by Rodgers. Last season, Turner started 13 games at right tackle but was released so the team could save about $3.36 million in cap space.
That leaves a glaring hole on the right side, which will essentially be an open competition that extends into training camp. An eventual winner will emerge after weeks of practice and three preseason games, but in the meantime, it doesn’t hurt to rank Green Bay’s current right tackle options.
