Contract Details for Packers DT Daniel Muir

Late Thursday night, we got our first look at the contract details for Green Bay Packers newly-signed defensive tackle Daniel Muir.

According to Aaron Wilson of, Muir's deal is for one-year and just $700,000, with no signing bonus or guaranteed money. The Packers agreed to terms with Muir last Friday.

Wilson also reports that Muir's contract will count for just $540,000 against the Packers cap next season if he remains on the roster. That's because his contact is eligible for the minimum salary benefit, which allows teams to pay a higher amount of cash up front but at a lower salary cap hit. It only applies for veterans making the minimum, and Muir's deal in Green Bay fits under the description.

The 28-year-old is expected to compete for a roster spot along the defensive line next season.

A five-year NFL veteran, Muir was signed by the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Kent State in 2007. Green Bay waived Muir before the 2008 season after the rookie appeared in just three games in '07.

Since '08, Muir has played in 40 games with the Indianapolis Colts, including 26 starts. He has 108 career tackles and .5 sacks.

If this is an example of the contract details for Hargrove, then Ted is on point with his free agency strategy.

I'm not sure Hargrove got the minimum, but who knows? Nobody showed much interest in him and he seemed intent on playing in Green Bay. Hard to argue with bringing in guys this cheap

Great signing. Players always care about the money first and foremost, but when it comes down to a minimum, players will usually sign with the team they think has the brightest future.

He would've definitely been picked up by another team if the Packers showed no interest. But he knew that being a Packer is a great opportunity with some of the best staff and players that the NFL has to offer.

And for people who think Hargrove may not pan out since he was known to not give full effort at times -- Do you REALLY think he (or Muir) won't give it their all to be on a team like this?

not much else needs to be said, really.

I'm not sure he would have been picked up by another team. He was cut by the Colts in November. He's been on the street since then.

I was going to say the same thing.
