This is obviously just a formality, as Allison emerged as one of the few young bright spots for the Packers in 2016.
Allison’s exclusive tender will be a one-year contract worth $540,000 for the 2017 season.
Allison, 23, wound up signing on with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Illinois back in May of last year. He was unable to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason but was later signed to their practice squad and eventually promoted to their active roster after Green Bay sustained some injuries at receiver.
In 2016, Allison appeared 10 games for the Packers and caught 12 passes for 202 yards receiving and two touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him down for playing 301 total snaps last year.
