The Packers have made another move to create some flexibility this offseason.

Per Field Yates of ESPN, Green Bay has restructured cornerback Rasul Douglas‘ contract to create $3.3 million in cap space for 2023.

Douglas signed a three-year, $21 million deal with the Packers last year.

The 27-year-old cornerback initially joined Green Bay off of Arizona’s practice squad midway through the 2021 season. He made a clear impact in his nine games with five starts that season, picking off five passes and returning two for touchdowns. He finished 2021 with 13 passes defensed.

In 17 games with 12 starts in 2022, Douglas had four picks, 13 passes defensed, a forced fumble, and a sack.

An Eagles third-round pick in 2017, Douglas has played d89 games with 50 starts for Philadelphia, Carolina, and Green Bay.

  1. Packers: we’re moving on from Rodgers. It’s time to rebuild around Love.

    Also Packers: let’s push millions in dead cap charges to next year for cap space now.

  2. He has played really well.

    One of the best under the radar moves this regime has made.

  3. Seems like every team is doing this. Restructuring is part of the ebb and flow of the NFL.

  4. The cap is gonna increase markedly in the next couple years — every team is doing this. And he should cooperate as he was the 37th ranked CB last year.
