Yeah I finally saw something on it. That's quite shocking considering they said before they weren't going to budge from the $5.5-6m range.
I guess now that he can get other offers and they saw what other teams were willing to give that had to overpay just to keep him.
Stupid move on their part because he was willing to settle for $7m per before. They just lost big time.
And I figured he would get about $7-8m per because he is young, though not as good as Grimes(but he's older).
I still don't think Munnerlyn and those similar guys get as much as Grimes, but all it takes is one team.
The deal is actually front loaded because the Packers have a ton of cap space this year($30m+ before they signed Shields). Smart move on their part.
$15m in year one, and $9m in the third and fourth years. So the second year is for $6m. So front loaded year one and back loaded year two.
