Former Green Bay Great David Bakhtiari Plans To Play In 2024

The Packers have entered a new era along the offensive line. They parted ways with franchise left tackle David Bakhtiari this offseason after an injury-riddled final few seasons in Green Bay.

The NFL Network’s Ian Rapport is now reporting that the 11-year pro plans on playing in 2024 despite having knee problems each of the last few seasons. Bakhtiari is only 32 years of age and if it wasn’t for a difficult last few years, he would be on his way to making the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

There have been no reports on teams that might be interested in adding the former All-Pro. But remember, if Bakhtiari is healthy, he is one of the best offensive linemen in the sport. The five-time All-Pro has started each of the 131 career games that he has played in. He was a central figure on many great Packers offenses with Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams, Randall Cobb, Aaron Jones, and many more great offensive players. He helped protect Rodgers’s blind side for over a decade en route to helping Green Bay win six division titles.

With Bakhtiari having accomplished everything except winning a Super Bowl, he will most likely look to join a contending team that is ready to roll. A team like the Dallas Cowboys could be a very interesting destination. His former head coach in Mike McCarthy is there, and the loss of All-Pro left tackle Tyron Smith has left a void on the offensive line. Regardless, Bakhtiari should be fully healthy by the time August rolls around, and he should have a nice bounce-back season in 2024.
