Packers GM faces challenge on getting team to take next step

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) After building a team that went from six wins to 13 in the regular season, Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst faces a key offseason.

A significant personnel overhaul lifted the Packers to the NFC championship game after missing the playoffs the previous two seasons. Now, with a 36-year-old starting quarterback in Aaron Rodgers and less draft capital than a year ago, Gutekunst will try to add the missing pieces to a roster that fell a win short of its first Super Bowl since the 2010 season. Taking that next step will be difficult. The San Francisco 49ers blew out the Packers twice, including 37-20 in last week’s NFC title game.

“I think it was evident in the two games we played that we have a lot of work to do if we want to be on that level,” Gutekunst said on Friday. “At the same time, they were No. 1 and we were No. 2 in the NFC. Every year’s different. We know there’s a lot of areas we can get better in. That’s what we’re looking to do.”
