Jamari Lattimore signs RFA tender with Packers

One of the few remaining restricted free agents has accepted his one-year contract tender from his club.

According to the NFL’s transactions, Packers linebacker Jamari Lattimore re-signed with Green Bay on Wednesday.

Lattimore (6-2, 230) recorded 35 tackles and two sacks for the Packers in 2013, appearing in 15 games and making four starts at middle linebacker. He was also a regular contributor on special teams.

A fourth-year pro from Middle Tennessee State, the 25-year-old Lattimore has played in 38 games since joining Green Bay as an undrafted free agent in 2011.

Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin and Panthers offensive tackle Byron Bell are the lone remaining restricted free agents. Teams have until Friday to sign Baldwin or Bell to offer sheets. Both were tendered at the second-round level, meaning signing clubs would have to give up a 2014 second-round pick to sign away Baldwin or Bell. Also, the Seahawks and Panthers would have five days to match any offer.

    Probably better than all the Vikings defensive players

    This might be the best LB on the depleted Packers defense.

    8-8 is the best outlook next year.

    Another LB? Maybe replacement for Perry? Jones?Keep throwing crap at the wall Ted, one of these LB will actually not bust…

    Lol, nice job Fred Thompson!

    No doubt Viking fans will covet him once we’re done with him.

    After playing a reserve role on another Packers playoff team that will again sweep the Vikes this year, Lattimore will likely sign a much more lucrative contract in Minnesota a year from now.

    He’s better than A.J. Hawk.

    12-4 Vikings…not so fast there. Lets say the Vikes actually split their divisional games (3-3) which isn’t going to happen. Then add losses to CAR, NO and NE and you are already at 6 losses. Time to look forward to the 2015 draft.

    He’s better than brad jones, IMO

    Jamari had some bright moments last year. He was playing great and then didn’t see the field much the latter part of the season.

  13. ariani1985 says: Apr 30, 2014 7:32 PM

    Who isn’t better than Brad Jones?

  14. axespray says: Apr 30, 2014 8:48 PM

    He’s probably the most physical of our MLBs right now, it’s just mental stuff – gotta get himself in the right positions.

    Hopefully he takes the next step and gets more playing time, ala Desmond Bishop.

    How hard is it to improve a bottom-ranked defense? Don’t ask the Packers, they’ve been trying to figure it out for years..

    Backing into a Superbowl 4 years ago was the best thing that could have happened to the other 3 teams in the Norse. Ted Thompson can do no wrong. Lol.

    Who isn’t better than Brad Jones?

    Everybody on the Vikings.

    Jamari Lattimore > Greenway

    Packers will win the Super Bowl this season.
    Aaron Rodgers MVP – Brett Favre comes back to Lambeau and renounces his affiliation with any other NFL teams other than the Packers.
    Skoal – don’t swallow !

    Pack fans, please respond to this question:

    Who would we rather face in the playoffs this year?

    Seahawks or 49ers?

    And the follow up:

    If we win the NFC championship game, who would we want to face in the Super Bowl? And you can’t answer the Jags!

  19. stellarperformance says: May 1, 2014 2:41 PM

    Doesn’t matter. I think they’re both overrated. The Packers played the 49’ers most recently with a team taped together with duct tape and popsicle sticks, and came within one fumble-fingered interception of beating them. The Seahawks caught lightning in a bottle….nothing more. Neither team scares me.

  20. filthymcnasty1 says: May 1, 2014 6:43 PM

    I’d like to have to play both the Niners and the Seahawks this year in the playoffs, and then the Patriots in the Superbowl. To be the best you have to beat the best.

  21. ariani1985 says: May 2, 2014 9:32 AM

    earth to Packer fans… to get to the superbowl you actually have to get past the first round….
    something your immune to……

  22. chukychez1 says: May 2, 2014 3:37 PM

    At least the Packers make it there. How is your team doing?
