The Green Bay Packers have seen a lot of change within their organization over the past year. Matt LaFleur is the Packers' third head coach since the start of last season, and it's safe to say he's likely to bring on more changes as he begins to implement his system.

It wouldn't be shocking to see the Packers bid farewell to players who played significant roles for the team in the Mike McCarthy era. With that in mind, here are three Packers that could get cut or traded ahead of the 2019 NFL season.

3. Jason Spriggs, Tackle

While Jason Spriggs proved to be a decent backup for the Packers last season, Green Bay has one of best offensive lines in football, and it might be difficult for him to find a spot on the roster. Additionally, he plays behind David Bakhtiari, who is arguably the best tackle in football. After spending a ton in free agency this offseason, Green Bay could look to shave some money by cutting Spriggs.

2. Josh Jones, Safety

Josh Jones has had a tumultuous offseason. He skipped voluntary workouts due to unhappiness with his role on the team, and he was unable to practice during Green Bay's minicamp due to a lingering hamstring injury. Jones has already asked to be traded, and the team could grant his wish this offseason.

1. Mason Crosby, Kicker

Mason Crosby is going into his 13th season with the Packers. That is, if Green Bay doesn't decide to cut ties with Crosby before then. The veteran was No. 24 in the league in field goal percentage last season (81.1 percent), and was No. 18 in the league in extra point percentage (94.4 percent). Considering he has a cap hit of close to $5 million in 2019, it might be time for Green Bay to go with a younger, cheaper option at kicker.
