The Packers have created a little cap space.

Field Yates of ESPN reports that the Packers restructured the contract of defensive lineman Dean Lowry, who has one of the highest cap hits on the team. The restructure converting $3.11 million of Lowry’s $4.1 million salary into a signing bonus, which creates $2.488 million in cap space.

The move does not indicate any kind of roster move regarding Aaron Rodgers is coming. The Rodgers situation does not require the Packers to create any cap space; if Rodgers were to get traded or retire it would save money on the Packers’ 2021 salary cap.

But it does give the Packers a little breathing room if they have any plans to sign or trade for any other players.

  1. There’s a reason here somewhere here. I suspect an IDL could be joining the team. Most other positions have some semblance of strength.

  2. Shocking. The Packers dont like parting with money. Thats the Org’s problem and what I think Rod is really steamed about, lack of going out over the years he has been there and spending money on free agents and not trying to build via the draft and undrateds.
    He has been surrounded by an overall lack of talent on defense. If that truely is his bitch, then I’m with him, its too late for a team of undrateds and developmental late round picks to help someone 38.

  3. Idk what 2.4 million is going to get you. That isn’t even enough to pay a backup QB.

  4. If they wanted to create cap room they’d restructure and extend Davante Adams. Why that hasn’t happened already is beyond me. Of course he’s a receiver that Rodgers has spoken highly of so they might also cut him.

  5. ” Rod is really steamed about, lack of going out over the years he has been there and spending money on free agents and not trying to build via the draft and undrateds.”
    Yeah, great point, except for all the money they spent a couple of years ago to bring in free agents Za’Darius Smith, Preston Smith, and Adrian Amos. Lack of free agents on defense must be the big problem.

  6. Wrong move again. Shoulda cut him. No way he isn’t among the worst starting D-lineman in the league. 36 tackles and 3 sacks could be replaced by EVERY free agent on the market. But everyone still thinks Brady beat the Pack and the Chiefs. Not the 4 studs on his D-line that dominated both games so why would it matter.

  7. Dean Lowry has one of the highest cap hits on the team? No wonder Rodgers wants Gutekunst fired

  8. Trading for Julio would go a long way towards making Rodgers happy.
