The Green Bay Packers are likely already deep into the roster evaluation phase of the offseason, now that more than a week has elapsed since the end of their 2014 season. With the team's evaluations underway, we at Acme Packing Company are going to spend the next two weeks doing the same, looking at one position each day.
Each day's analysis will start with a look at the position group's overall performance in the 2014 season. We will follow that with an examination of the players who were new Packers in 2014 or who were re-signed to new contracts to determine whether those new deals are off to a good start; finally, we'll preview the players at the position who are set to hit free agency in March 2015.
