Sad News: Green Bay Packers Confirm The Departure Of Another Top Experienced Superstar Prior To 2024 Training Camp

Green Bay Packers: Quarterback Cut Candidate Before 2024 Training Camp


The Green Bay Packers may cut some players from the roster before the start of training camp in a few weeks. Like all NFL teams, Green Bay will have position battles during camp, potentially leading to some unexpected cuts before the 2024 season begins.

Last season, there were many questions about the quarterback position. Fans wondered about Jordan Love’s potential and the performance of the backup quarterback. When the Packers were 2-5, some fans even wanted Sean Clifford to replace Love.

Ultimately, that didn’t happen, and now Love is preparing to take the next step and lead the team this season.

**Green Bay Packers Quarterback Sean Clifford a Cut Candidate Before 2024 Training Camp**

It would be surprising if the Packers cut quarterback Sean Clifford before training camp. Although Clifford struggled during offseason workouts and rookie quarterback Michael Pratt from Tulane has performed better, cutting Clifford would be unexpected. Currently, Clifford is listed as the backup to Jordan Love.

Sayre Bedinger of identifies Clifford as one of six potential cut candidates for the Packers before training camp. Bedinger noted:

“You’re not typically going to see teams carry just two quarterbacks during the offseason when 90-man rosters are allowed, but it wouldn’t be shocking if the Packers were so disappointed by the offseason performance of 2023 fifth-round pick Sean Clifford that they decided to move on.

Clifford was throwing interceptions left and right throughout OTAs and minicamp and was getting out-performed by seventh-round rookie Michael Pratt. Is it possible that we could see the Packers opt for a different third quarterback completely to back up Jordan Love?

One possibility that could make some sense is veteran Ryan Tannehill, who didn’t cross paths with Matt LaFleur in Tennessee but could come in and raise the floor at the position in case Jordan Love has to miss any time. Because if Clifford’s rough performance at OTAs and minicamp showed us or taught us anything, it’s that the Packers need to be better prepared in the event that Jordan Love has to miss any extensive time.

Take last year for example. What if Love had to miss a stretch of two or three games while the Packers were clearly contending for a Wild Card spot? It would have been catastrophic to have to turn to Sean Clifford in November or December to start multiple games. The Packers got away with it last year, but 67 quarterbacks started games in the league last year. The odds are, they’re going to need the backup to play at least a little bit.

And that can’t be Sean Clifford. The Packers need to make some type of move to upgrade their QB2 situation and possibly cut their losses with the former Penn State starter.”

Would it be possible for the Packers to cut Clifford and sign free-agent quarterback Ryan Tannehill? This could be an option, but it might take reps away from Michael Pratt. If the plan is to keep only two quarterbacks on the roster, it’s better to have Clifford and Pratt compete. The Packers should only consider bringing in Tannehill if Jordan Love gets injured, a scenario they hope to avoid. Cutting Clifford before training camp would be a puzzling decision.
