The Green Bay Packers were able to keep an offensive lineman with the team on Monday. The Packers placed a tender on offensive lineman Yosh Nijman earlier this offseason. The deal would have allowed for any NFL team to match the Packers one year offer of $4.3 million. The Packers had a first right of refusal for Nijman’s potential new contract and would have been compensated a second-round pick from the team that signed him.
