Jeff Janis Gets Signed, James Nixon Gets Cut

Jeff Janis

The Green Bay Packers came to terms with another of the receivers they drafted, seventh-rounder Jeff Janis.

They also let the ax fall on cornerback James Nixon.

Janis’ deal will be worth $2,271,392 with a signing bonus a little over $50K. A few interesting nuggets we’ve picked up on this guy since the draft.

The knock (or one of them) on him is he played against Division II competition, but Big Ted thinks he’s a hell of an athlete.

Janis was also rated as a possible third-round selection by, so the Packers could have gotten a steal.

Finally, he may have himself a hot, blond girlfriend. This was Janis hanging out and waiting to get drafted.

As for Nixon, he spent much of his time with the Packers on the practice squad. He was on the active roster last season and played in three games. He suffered a leg injury that landed him on injured reserve in November.

That’s ultimately why the Packers cut him — failed physical.

    Think a 21 year old will be able to get by on $568K a year? $5K a week post-tax?

    I can’t understand why so many of these dudes go broke. Worked with 4 ex-NFLers and none of ’em had a pot to piss in after they got cut. But they did have nice rides with some blinging rims.
