I don't know what will happen with Kirksey, but consider this...
Green Bay has a lot of expiring free agents and no matter where the cap actually ends up they won't have much space to work with. So, prioritize the below:
26 yo Aaron Jones
25 yo Jamaal Williams
25 yo Allen Lazard (ERFA)
26 yo Robert Tonyan (RFA)
29 yo Corey Linsley
25 yo Kevin King
The actual cap will play a large role in who from above can be retained and this doesn't consider free agency additions, but the more of them that are retained the more likely it is the below go:
28 yo Kirksey (save $6m)
28 yo Preston Smith (save $8m)
28 yo Davante Adams is the only obvious one expiring after 2021, so they could extend him early and lower his cap #. Restructures can always happen, but there aren't any obvious ones - and if they were to choose between Kirksey and P Smith I'd think they would choose the latter.
