The Green Bay Packers will hold their final open OTA session of the 2010 offseason today at Ray Nitschke Field. Practice starts at 11:15 AM with Head Coach Mike McCarthy addressing the media 1:15 PM.
Tuesday, it was reported that DT Johnny Jolly signed his Restricted Free Agent Tender before the NFL deadline. That leaves CB Tramon Williams and S Atari Bigby as the only two not to ink their tenders. They will have salaries at 110% of their 2009 numbers if a deal is not reached.
That difference won’t be huge for Bigby who looks at about a $10k differential. Williams on the other hand is looking at a near $2-million cut. A hold-out could be a possibility if something is not worked out before the July 31st start of training camp.
So now corner becomes a big position to watch the rest of the offseason. Pat Lee is entering his third season after spending a majority of his first two on the IR. Lee sees 2010 as make or break for himself:
The final OTA session for the Packers is Thursday. They will then reconvene in Green Bay Monday for mandatory mini-camp.
UPDATE: Greg Bedard of he Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting that Tramon Williams has signed his tender.
