The Packers executed an exclusive rights free agent tender on WR Allen Lazard on March 16th. At the time the Packers fully expected Lazard to sign the tender sheet offer. Both sides reportedly wanted to get a new deal done. It is June 6th and Allen Lazard has not yet signed his restricted free agent deal. There has been a slight growing concern about the status of Lazard in Green Bay this year, however a post by Lazard may settle those concerns.
Allen Lazard Flying to Green Bay?
It would appear that Allen Lazard is headed back to Green Bay just in time for mandatory minicamp. The Packers should have their presumed number one wide receiver in Green Bay for the start of the actual off-season. It is pretty widely assumed that Lazard has yet to sign his tender due to trying to negotiate a long term contract with the Packers. Lazard does not have the ability to negotiate with any other teams, but he and the Packers can come to agreement over a long term contract vice his one year tender.
