The 2004 Green Bay Packers season started with the Packers losing four of their first five games, then winning their next six games, and finally ending in a Wild Card playoff loss to the Minnesota Vikings. They finished with an overall record of 10–7.

Offseason[edit]

The Packers did not make many offseason moves, signing safety Mark Roman and cornerback Chris Watson. They lost punter Josh Bidwell and safety Antuan Edwards to free agency and released defensive tackle Gilbert Brown, defensive end Jamal Reynolds, and wide receiver Travis Williams. [1]

With the 25th pick of the 2004 NFL Draft, the Packers selected cornerback Ahmad Carroll from the University of Arkansas.
