The Green Bay Packers have tendered exclusive right free agent Chris Banjo.
That means Banjo will return for a fourth season in Green Bay.
#Packers have officially tendered ERFA @Chris1Banjo. He's leader of special teams and a reliable backup. He'll be an RFA after this year.

The Packers owned exclusive negotiating rights to Banjo, providing they tendered him an offer before free agency began. If they hadn’t, he would have been free to sign with any team.
As it is, Banjo will make $675,000 for 2016 once he signs the offer.
Banjo was a valuable special teams player for the Packers in 2015, earning a playoff captain’s nod for that reason. He also started one game at safety.
Good sign…way to go Banjo
