The Packers also signed DL Anthony Rush to their practice squad.
Bakhtiari suffered a season-ending ACL tear this past week so this isn’t a big surprise.
Bakhtiari, 29, is a former fourth-round pick of the Packers back in 2013. He’s currently in the final year of his five-year, $53.34 million contract that included $16 million guaranteed and stands to make a base salary of $10 million for the 2020 season.
Bakhtiari was in line to be an unrestricted free agent in 2021 when he agreed to a four-year extension worth up to $105.5 million in new money. The contract includes a $30M signing bonus and another $30 million-plus available in March roster bonuses within the next 28 months.
In 2020, Bakhtiari has appeared in 12 games for the Packers, making 12 starts for them.
