Quarterback Aaron Rodgers is getting a chance to work with the Packers’ new wide receivers at this week’s mandatory minicamp. but he won’t have a chance to get in any reps with one of the returning players at the position.

Packers head coach Matt LaFleur confirmed on Tuesday that wide receiver Allen Lazard is not at the minicamp this week. While the work is mandatory, Lazard isn’t violating his contract by skipping the sessions.

Lazard was tendered as a restricted free agent this offseason, but he has not yet signed the tender so he is not required to attend this week’s minicamp. The deadline to sign an offer sheet with another team is gone, so Lazard will either have to sign the tender or sign a different deal with the Packers if they don’t trade him and he wants to play this year.

If Lazard signs the tender, he’ll play out the year with a salary of $3.986 million and be set for unrestricted free agency in 2023.

  1. Isn’t he the packers number 1 receiver? They need to pay him #1 cash, like $24 million per year

  2. This is another non-issue.
    Lazard has absolutely no leverage when it comes to his pending contract and it’s these kind of actions that are only detrimental to himself.
    But I’m quite sure that Juwann Winfree and Samori Toure are watching these developments with great interest.
    And possibly Will Fuller’s agent. 😉

  3. The hesitations of one player increases the opportunities for another.

  4. We’re urging the Packers to give Lazard a long term deal, at decent but not ridiculous compensation levels. He has an opportunity to be the new Jordy in this offense. Hope he takes it.

  5. It’s interesting and revealing to watch the egos of undrafted free agents explode after they score a couple of TD’s. Lazard seems like a good guy, but he needs to pick things up quite a bit before he gets rewarded with a big K.

    Somebody is making a funny. Yes, pay Allan Lazard $24 million per year, that’s hilarious.

  7. He should just play this year under the tender. With the Packer’s lack of depth at WR he should have a huge year and get a massive payday next season.

  8. Being a person of supreme observation I though Lizard put on weight last year, looked sluggish and was not an effective target, easily covered by the opponent and thus not a target of desire for Rodgers.
    My guess, he wants the new contract to protect him down the road and the Pack are saying, your not worth it, sign the one year deal, prove to us you value and will see about next year.

    I missed the part where Lazard said he was holding out?

    He’ll sign, and be at training camp. Nothing to see here.

  11. The guys misses the big city life of Ames, IA while in college comparatively speaking to living in the trailer park known as GB and wants out.

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Maybe he’d rather live in Dodging Bullets, MN?

  13. He should take the packers off because he would not make a roster on any other nfl team.

  14. All he needs to do is get some incentives thrown in in case he breaks out, it’s not a sure thing he’ll be the #1 receiver. Christian Watson could be rookie of the year, Sammy Watkins or Randall Cobb could be comeback player of the year, and even Juwann Winfree could surprise us with a Lazard like breakthrough.
