    Supposedly signed it last night before midnight. New money is ~ $23m per year, making him the highest paid lineman in the NFL.

    Follow up, Bakh's tweet from last night now makes more sense.

    I like Bakh, ALOT, but I still don't think great QBs need elite olinemen; give Rodgers an adequate LT and spend the difference elsewhere and I think the Packers are better overall. However, from a job security standpoint, Gute had to re-sign Bakh because if you let him walk and Rodgers gets hurt, Gute loses his job.

    That makes it feel very unlikely that Aaron Jones will be back

    Pretty sure everyone should have realized it after the Chiefs signed all those huge deals this year.

    You understand the Packers will have to make several moves to fit that extension under the cap for next season, don't you???

    I sure do. I have always acknowledged that they would have to.

    I think it guarantees it.

    I’ll wait on details of the contract but the initial numbers do surprise me. I’d guess right now that Jones, King and Linsely are probably gone. Probably Wagner, Kirksey and Lowry as well. Possibly P. Smith and Amos gone too. That’s just my initial thoughts.

    Keep in mind, they can also extend other highly paid players to lower cap numbers. Preston is almost a certainty to go, I highly doubt Amos goes (that would leave the team with no good safeties). Losing Lowry and Kirksey would be a positive since Gute might be pressured to find some younger guys with upside. Wagner should be kept, he's been pretty decent, and should probably be extended to make some additional room.

    And those contract numbers are a little surprising considering the Ravens just signed their LT (one of the best in the NFL along with Bakh) to a deal averaging $19.75m; Packers managed to beat the awful contract that O'Brien signed Tunsil to in Houston. That's kind of concerning to be honest.

    Edit: didn't mean to imply that Stanley is as good as Bakh, just that beating the last reasonable LT contract by $3.25 million per year is a lot.

    The 30M signing bonus is something to be relieved about. Very much like Russ Ball. That’s a very reasonable 28%. Depending on how it’s structured it could be lighter on the cap in 21.

    All depends on how it's structured. You can keep the cap number well below the average for the first couple of seasons.

    Have you seen the prices on those things? Though compared to the early bird specials on lawn decor and the 11’ candy canes for 3400 bucks they were quite the deal :)

    You understand that every time someone has suggested that they would/could extend Bakh, you responded by saying that they probably couldn't, don't you???

    Probably will franchise tag Aaron Jones . But I can’t see him getting signed to an extension after this. Not this year...Adams will be due up next season as well so if they do bring Jones back it’ll be his last season as a Packer unless they dump Rodgers and his salary. Crazy crazy crazy . I probably would’ve out the franchise tag on Bahk and resign Jones. That’s just me tho...I mean the offense looked fine without him.

    Franchising Bakh puts too much money on next years salary. Signing him to an extension allows them to push the money back a little.
