If Taylor’s knee injury means the end of his time in Green Bay, we should take a moment and appreciate what he’s accomplished. Lane Taylor ’s season is likely over. The eighth-year Green Bay Packers guard left Sunday’s game against the Vikings  with what looked to be a knee injury, and subsequent reporting has, at the very least, confirmed what the Packers  feared. Taylor  will require surgery and likely will not be available for the remainder of the 2020 season, and likely beyond.
A free agent after this year, Taylor already took a pay cut to stay in Green Bay. The Packers seemed prepared to move on, but Taylor wanted to be here. “We looked at all of our options,” he told reporters in training camp , “but we liked Green Bay and I feel like it’s the best spot for me.”
Green Bay should like him, too. An undrafted free agent in 2013, Taylor has been a remarkable success story. Just 11 offensive linemen taken in the 2013 NFL Draft  have played more games than Taylor’s 79 , and few can match his list of career accomplishments.
Taylor has been reliable and dependable throughout his tenure. It was Taylor the Packers had in mind when they dumped Josh Sitton  on the eve of the 2016 season, and it was Taylor who provided a personal escort for Aaron Rodgers  on his legendary strike to Jared Cook  in the playoffs that very season. It was Taylor that stepped in on short notice to play left tackle early in 2017, doing whatever the Packers asked of him despite having limited — at best — experience in that spot.
It was that same Taylor who started 46 of 48 possible games from 2016 through 2018, itself a noteworthy feat for a former undrafted free agent.
The Packers will carry on without him, of course, as they have before. Just as Elgton Jenkins  did last year, rookie Jon Runyan stepped in and filled the gap admirably. General manager Brian Gutekunst is no doubt scouring the waiver wire for whatever help might be available. But I think we’d be remiss if we didn’t take a moment to appreciate what Taylor has done in Green Bay.
If this is indeed the end, and it very well could be, it’s been quite a ride.

Nice story on Lane. He came a long way.
tough break for the guy , he played well !!
I think we should resign him to a cheap one year prove it deal. Which is basically what he agreed to take less for, as the base salary was down to $910,000 with workout and playing time incentives to possible go up to $1.5 million.

As the article talked about, we got Jenkins and Runyan, but as some fans have talked about, Jenkins future might be best at RT. They played Jenkins over Wagner at RT and fans seem to trust Jenkins there more than Turner.

Probably losing Linsley in FA... and I'm sure some will argue to save money and release Turner and/Wagner from their more expensive deals (also is Wagner better than the cheaper Veldheer? Veldeer got the starting RT over Jenkins, Wagner didn't).

So Bak, Jenkins, Patrick and Runyan are probably locks for next year, if you trust Jenkins at RT (and they did, and at least one game he played well), then another OG could be helpful. Plus Turner or Wagner... developing guy from 2020 draft and a 2021 draft pick.

It boils down do you want to give Taylor another cheap shot, vs do you want to pay both Turner and Wagner contracts?
