Packers Sign G Lane Taylor To Two-Year Deal

The Packers have signed guard Lane Taylor to a two-year deal worth $4.15MM, per Ian Rapoport of (on Twitter). Only $600K of that total contract is guaranteed, however.

We learned last week that Taylor wouldn’t be getting a restricted free agent tender and now we know why. Last year, Taylor appeared in four games for the Packers and the club is likely banking on him becoming a bigger part of the offensive line rotation going forward. Had he been given a low tender, Taylor could have been in line for a $1.671MM salary in 2016. Instead, he has a mostly non-guaranteed two-year deal that hurts his 2017 upside but still gives him a decent chunk of guaranteed cash.
