It crossed Bryan Bulaga‘s mind pregame, but even more after the 49ers built a 27-0 lead. The veteran right tackle may well have played his final game in a Packers uniform.

Bulaga, 30, is scheduled to become a free agent in March after completing a five-year, $33.1 million extension he signed in 2015.

“You think about it before you go out there,” Bulaga said, via Jim Owczarski of “There’s always potential this is could be the last one. We were in the playoffs, and now that the season’s over, yeah, we’ll see. But I think at first you reflect on the season and think back on success you had and things we did well. There will be a time for the next phase of this thing.”

Bulaga played 16 regular-season games for the first time since 2016 and for only the third time in 10 NFL seasons. He did not play against the Seahawks in the wild-card round because of an illness.

“I mean, it was fun,” Bulaga said. “Definitely appreciate coach [Matt] LaFleur and [offensive line] coach [Adam] Stenavich believing in me, bringing me in and allowing me to stay here and be part of this. It was a lot of fun. it’s been an enjoyable year. I can’t predict what’s going to happen in the future — it’s not really my gig — but all I know is it’s been a good 10 years. It’s been fun. We’ll see what happens.”

Bulaga has never known another NFL home since the Packers made him a first-round choice in 2010. But, after 115 regular-season games and 13 in the postseason, he could have a new one for next season.

  1. Bulaga – nice fellow and an OK right tackle. But, he’s injured all the time.

    Time for GB to move on.

  2. Clark doesn’t expect to hold out in 2020 if he isn’t offered an appropriate contract extension, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. “I don’t have to do anything like that,” Clark said. “I don’t think it will come to that.”

    and Kenny Clark threatening to hold out…. this team is a mess


    This team just swept their division and played in the NFC championship game. I’m guessing you wear purple on Sundays.

  4. Bryan Bulaga has been a great right tackle for the Packers and has overcome a ton of injuries to do it. He is a class act who always gave his best on the field. He is the type of unheralded player which every team needs to be a first class organization.
    No matter where he plays next year, he will always be a great Packers player.
    Good luck Bryan and thanks for the great memories!

  5. Bulaga will be happier when he leaves Grene Bay. Players always vote GB as their last choice to play for.

    Welcome to the NY Giants.

    We went the 30+ yo old route with FA OT’s the last two years with Solder and Remmers…and look what that got us. No thanks on Bulaga.

  7. Packers = Rebuild

    Vikings = Recalibrate

    Big difference.
    Why are Viking fans in here talking smack? And have you looked at the age of your team and cap situation? Maybe you should, then you’d realize how ridiculous of a post that was.

    Packers have a projected 30+ mil in cap room in 2020, meanwhile MIN is in the negatives.
    Thanks for the laugh, though!
