Packers Re-Signing RFA WR Geronimo Allison To One-Year Deal

     

Jason La Canfora reports that “several” teams have been mulling signing Packers RFA WR Geronimo Allison to an offer sheet, but he will return to Green Bay on a new one-year deal.

According to La Canfora, Allison’s new contract with the Packers will pay him more than the low-round restricted tender he received worth just over $2 million and includes guaranteed money and a chance to earn additional incentives.

It was surprising to see Green Bay use a low-round tender on Allison, given that he was an undrafted free agent and they wouldn’t have received any compensation for him had they not matched an offer he received in free agency. 

However, it appears as though the Packers were planning all along to re-sign him to a new contract. 

Allison, 25, 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.

Allison is set to be an unrestricted free agent in 2020.  

In 2018, Allison appeared in five games for the Packers and caught 20 passes for 303 yards receiving and two touchdowns.
