Random Packer News & Notes


Recommended Posts

Tom Silverstein -  The Packers could guarantee Rodgers’ final three years and probably survive the cap ramifications. But if they start adding salary to three guaranteed years, look out. If they go $40M per year, e.g., they could face a $70M “dead money” cap hit in ‘24.

Rodgers knows that if he is traded, another team can give him $120M guaranteed in a restructured deal. That team doesn’t have previous salary cap $$ attached to him on its books like the Packers. Makes it easier for them to do it, especially if they have existing cap space.

Ya, but none of Rodgers weapons are 1st round draft picks.

From Field Yates,

When the Packers re-signed TE Robert Tonyan to his $3.384 RFA deal, the team structured it uniquely: $2.349M of it comes via bonuses, which prorate over 4 void years added. Tonyan gets that money guaranteed, Green Bay creates $1,879,200 in needed cap space.

Peter Bukowski -   Big Bob Tonyan says Matt LaFleur asked him to come to voluntary camp and LaFleur said they're trying some new things with him, wanting to see how he handles some different concepts, different routes etc. Sounds like they want to feature him more in 2021.

Matt Schneidman -   LaFleur says he wants to feature Robert Tonyan in the offense more in 2021. Says Tonyan has improved more than anyone on the team since he became head coach in 2019.

I remember loving Tonyan way before it was cool.

Why the hell are Kadar Hollman and Stanford Samuels not at OTAs? Injured? About the only explanation I can think of given who they are. 

Samuels is at OTA's.
