Packers Hosting LB Christian Kirksey On Visit

According to Mike Garafolo, the Packers are hosting former Browns LB Christian Kirksey on a free agent visit Thursday. 

Kirksey visited the Raiders yesterday but left without a deal. The Bills are another team reportedly interested in the veteran’s services for 2020. 

It’s worth mentioning that signing Kirksey to a contract won’t impact a team’s 2021 compensatory picks, given that he was released this offseason.

Kirksey, 27, is a former third-round pick of the Browns back in 2014. He was in the final year of his four-year, $3.04 million contract when he agreed to a four-year contract extension worth $38 million and includes $20 million guaranteed.

Kirksey was set to make a base salary of $7.75 million for the 2020 season when the Browns released him this offseason. 

In 2019, Kirksey appeared in two games and recorded 11 tackles for the Browns before being placed on injured reserve.
