Packers Expected To Lose C J.C. Tretter In Free Agency

Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Packers free agent C J.C. Tretter has a large market for his services and is expected to receive more lucrative offers from other teams than Green Bay will be willing to match. 

According to Cohen, Tretter has already received “wealth of interest” at the Combine this week, which includes his agents meetings with six teams and two more still scheduled.

It’s worth mentioning that the Packers are one of the remaining meetings. However, Cohen says that the expectation is that Tretter will have other teams pursuing him more aggressively than Green Bay and can offer both a larger contract and a starting center job.

This, of course, means that the Packers will move forward with Corey Linsley as their starting center.

Tretter, 26, is a former fourth-round pick of the Packers back in 2013. He has played out his four-year, $2,575,908 and is now in position to be one of the most sought-after interior offensive lineman in this year’s free agent market.

In 2016, Tretter appeared in seven games for the Packers and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 9 center out of 38 qualifying players.

We have him featured in our Top 100 – 2017 Free Agents list.
