The Green Bay Packers have not been afraid to commit to some massive signings over the last few years. Kenny Clark, Jaire Alexander, Aaron Jones, David Bakhtiari, and Elgton Jenkins are all getting paid near top of the market money for their respective positions. While they don’t often sign any big name free agents, they sure consistent with signing their own players.
Today, however, it was one of their biggest rivals who decided to sign a player they just acquired to a massive contract.
