The Packers have re-signed exclusive rights free agent Chris Banjo to a one-year contract, according to Pete Dougherty of the Green Bay Press-Gazette (Twitter link). Terms of the deal aren’t known, but it’s almost certainly worth $495K, the minimum salary for a player with one year of NFL experience.
Banjo, a safety, went undrafted in 2012, then signed with the Jaguars in the summer of 2013. After he was cut by Jacksonville, the former Southern Methodist standout inked a deal with the Packers and earned a spot on the team’s regular season roster. Banjo saw some action in the secondary for Green Bay in his rookie season, playing 192 overall snaps, and will likely have to compete for a roster spot and playing time again in 2014.
