Allen Lazard Opens Up About Free Agency
Allen Lazard is set to become an unrestricted free agent when NFL free agency opens next month, which means the Green Bay Packers could lose one of their best wide receivers for the second offseason in a row.
For his part, Lazard is excited about free agency and willing to see what's out there after spending the first five years of his career with the Packers, based on a recent interview he did on SiriusXM NFL Radio.

The 27-year-old wideout figures to be in high demand this offseason after producing career highs in numerous categories last season. Lazard stepped up in Davante Adams' absence, leading Green Bay in targets (100), receptions (60) and receiving yards (788).
While that performance could entice another team to sign Lazard, he admitted that he'd be picky about choosing a new home. He appreciates the high standards that the Packers have as well as their annual commitment to winning, both of which he'd be looking for in a potential suitor.
Time will tell which teams end up making a push for Lazard and if any of them are up to his standards. While he's looking forward to exploring his options, there's always the chance that he ends up back in Green Bay, especially if Aaron Rodgers decides to stick around rather than be traded or retire.
