Packers bringing back Justin McCray

The Packers opened the 2018 season with Justin McCray as their starting right guard, but a shoulder injury knocked him out of the lineup after the first three games of the year.

McCray would remain on the active roster, but he’d only get two more starts before the year was out. He’ll have a chance to try for a longer run in the lineup this season.

Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports that the team has tendered McCray a $645,000 contract as an exclusive rights free agent. McCray can sign the tender or sit out the year, so he’ll be back in Green Bay as long as he’s continuing his career.

McCray signed with the Packers in 2017 after time with the Titans and in the Arena League. He played 13 games and made eight starts during his first year with the club.

  1. He’s had his moments..

    .. sadly for the Pack, I wouldn’t say he’s that much of a dropoff in comparison to Lane Taylor.

    Sadly, for McCray, Taylor gets paid about 10x as much……

    Ahhhhhh, the tough decisions 3rd place teams must make.

    You know what’s hilarious, an 8 win team that’s unable to make any decisions, one way or another, because their GM has their backs against the salary cap.

    I’d rather be in that position than to be a team that saw their defense improve and their All-Pro QB play the entire season and still only won 6 games, and now has a new coach whose claim to fame is he once played golf with Sean McVay.

    Without penultimate strategic injuries like McCray’s the Packers would have won the Super Bowl last year!

  5. Wow, we’ve got the purple all star cast in this one. Can’t remember the last time one of these Packer comment sections was actually enjoyable to read. Just fight picking trolls and the guys (like myself) that are dumb enough to take their bait.

    McCray must be thankful to be in a safe workplace environment for offensive linemen

    Our QB didn’t play the entire season (such that it matters) and played the first quarter/half the season on a bum leg. Teams have bad years, it happens….and if you have noticed (which judging by your constant trolling of Packer threads, you haven’t) Packer fans don’t come into Viking stories and talk trash much anymore…because we have the awareness to realize it’s not a good look given the way we played in 2018. That’s something you should look into.

    So you’re saying I’m getting burned because Packer fans are laughing at people dying.
    You guys really are all alike.

    Did we miss something? I didn’t read anything, anywhere, about anybody dying. And what exactly are we falling back from……other than your in-bred inclination to pick unnecessary fights? What’s the matter, you run out of petty grammar infractions?

  11. Justin McCray is not the answer. And to the Viking trolls…… why don’t you go contribute to Roc’s defense fund or something else useful?

  12. The Packers are about to re-sign Reggie Gilbert and Lucas Patrick.

    Not a surprise, but good news on both those guys. Patrick is quality depth on the OL and though Gilbert underwhelmed me last year he still has great potential as a pass rusher. Hopefully with the couple new edge rushers the Pack will be getting soon in FA and the draft, Reggie can be part of a position of strength on the defense.

    Unlike the brain wizards west of the Mississippi, the Packers realize you need more up front than 5 Macy’s mannequins to have success offensively.

    Define “success.” Six wins?

    I missed this earlier. No you have no self awareness if you believe only Viking trolls exist. You believe that because of your Packer fan arrogance.

    Are you that out of tune stella, pack fan material goes all the way back to Korey Stringer. Unless you condone your fellow green and yellow insensitive remarks.

    Lost me. In this post? Someone dying? Please copy and paste. Thanks buddy!

  19. I’ve caught ariana posting under several different identities more than once.
    It kind of makes you wonder just how many of these purple trolls come down to being just one person.
    I believe the answer would surprise you.
