LaFleur didn’t say if Packers OL Billy Turner‘s injury had effectively made the decision for the team at right tackle. He had been competing with Rick Wagner: “Like I’ve told you guys all along, were trying to find the best five, and we’re going to continue to work through that.” (Rob Demovsky)
The Packers have still not been in contact with OT Jared Veldheer, who finished the year at right tackle for them last season. (Demovsky)
NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport reports Vikings OT Riley Reiff‘s pay cut lowers his base salary from $11 million to $6 million, creating $5 million in cap space for Minnesota.
Reiff can earn $2 million back in incentives if he hits 86 percent and 93.75 percent of the snaps in 2020, per NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo.
Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune says the Vikings and Jaguars discussed a sign-and-trade for DE Yannick Ngakoue where the Jaguars would pick up his bonus. However, all $12 million of Ngakoue’s deal will count against the Vikings.
