Packers Offered Tollefson Minimum Deal

Packers Offered Tollefson Minimum Deal

According to Andrew Brandt of ESPN and the National Football Post, the Packers only offered free-agent pass-rusher Dave Tollefson a one-year, veteran's minimum deal during their courting of the 29-year-old over the last two weeks. Tollefson eventually signed with the Oakland Raiders for two-years, $2.4-million.

So while the Packers did show a degree of interest by hosting Tollefson during a weekend visit, it appears as if the team wasn't prepared to give Tollefson any kind of monetary incentive to come back to Green Bay. For a career backup who has just 10 career sacks and is inching closer to age 30, that was probably the right decision.

No coincidence all defensive vets the Packers chased were offered 1 year vet minimum.

More camp competition than actual FA signing.

McGinn is such a jackbag.
