Packers defensive back Will Redmond will stay in Green Bay for another year.

Redmond and the Packers have agreed to terms on a new contract, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.

The 26-year-old Redmond played in 13 regular-season games for the Packers last year, with four starts. He also played in both postseason games.

Redmond was a 2016 third-round pick of the 49ers who never got on the field in San Francisco because of knee and ankle injuries. He spent some time in Kansas City after the 49ers cut him, but he never got on the field there, either. Only in Green Bay did Redmond finally start to live up to his talent, and now he’ll remain with the only team he’s seen the field for.

  1. Good signing, but why not give the guy 2 years? He was a good player, and provided depth at the position. I think he also has good size. Now ink a couple more please.

  2. Plackers really tearing it up so far this year during free agency. Do we dare say early Superbowl favorites?

  3. “But why not give the guy 2 years”


    You have zero clue what you are talking about. Yes, Will Redmond is good depth and a very good special teams player, but is not a starter and there is no guarantee he makes the roster.

    He played for the vet minumum of 575,000 last year and one could expect he signed for a similar deal now.


  4. And I have zero clue how to type without typos. He played for the vet *minimum as well.

  5. It’s OK, free. We know how hard it is to type with eleven fingers. #genetics – just for you

  6. Will Redmond is a fine athlete but absolutely terrible in coverage.

    Special teams importance is not what it used to be, and I’d hope Green Bay will have better use of a spot on the 53. We shall see.
