Justin Perillo will Also Return

Justin Perillo

As they did with safety Chris Banjo, the Green Bay Packers decided to retain their other exclusive rights free agent, tight end Justin Perillo.

They did so by tendering Perillo a one-year, $675,000 offer prior to free agency.

So that pretty much solidifies the Packers’ tight end position for 2016, right?

Right?

Perillo, also known as Long Hair, Don’t Care around these parts, caught 11 balls for 102 yards and a touchdown in 2015. He started the season on the practice squad and ended up playing in nine games.

As expected, the Packers did not tender restricted free agent linebacker Andy Mulumba.

That tender would have cost the Packers $1.671 million in 2016, which is slightly out of whack for a guy who made just four tackles in six games in 2015.

The team could bring him back on a lesser deal, but as it stands, Mulumba is an unrestricted free agent.

    If the Packers re-signed TE Colt Lyerla they would be set at TE. Colt has by far superior skills than any TE on the roster.

    Fuck yes!!!! Why go after better TE in free agency when you can just resign a guy that wouldn’t make 31 other NFL rosters! TT is so smart!

    I fully expect McCarthy to come out with the Mitch Henry endorsement soon to calm the fans, ha.

    Big gay clay was dead on. Look at how much interest our other free agents have gotten so far. Most of teds guys wouldn’t even crack the starting lineups for other contenders. Look at all those that do leave, they end up cut or out of the league soon after leaving. Rodgers carries this team and unfortunately surrounding him with rookies and average players won’t win a championship.

    It will get us 10-12 wins and maybe a playoff win or two at most but hats about it. Apparently hats just fine by Ted, Mark and company.

    Except Erik Walden was still a starter for the Colts last year I believe. Davon house was solid last year for the jags. I am sure if you even paid half attention to other teams bottom feeding players that were let go without a second contract didn’t garner interest among other nfl teams. Do keep in mind around 300 new NFL players enter the league each year.
