Packers Retain ERFA WR Geronimo Allison

Geronimo Allison will be returning to Green Bay next season.’s Rob Demovsky reports that the wideout signed his exclusive rights free agent contract with the Packers yesterday. It was reported back in March that Allison would sign the contract prior to free agency, so the deal apparently took longer than expected. The wideout will make the second-year minimum of $540K next season.

Geronimo AllisonThe 23-year-old joined the organization after going undrafted out of Illinois during last year’s draft. He was released by the team during the final round of cuts, but he subsequently joined the team’s practice squad. Allison earned a promotion to the active roster in late October, and he proceeded to play in 10 regular season games (as well as three postseason games) for the Packers. In those 13 combined games, Allison hauled in 17 receptions for 267 yards and two touchdowns.

Allison figures to compete with Trevor Davis and Max McCaffrey for the Packers’ fifth receiver spot. The Packers are also rostering wideouts Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, Davante Adams, and Jeff Janis.
