The Packers have tendered restricted free agent wide receiver Geronimo Allison at the original round level, according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (Twitter link). Allison will collect $2.025MM for the 2019 season.
Allison is a former undrafted free agent, so Green Bay won’t receive any compensation if he signs elsewhere. However, the Packers have secured the right of first refusal, meaning they’ll be able to match any offer sheet that Allison receives.
Allison, 25, managed 20 receptions in four games last season before being placed on injured reserve with hamstring and groin issues. Despite his limited track record, Allison could be in for an expanded role next year, playing as Green Bay’s No. 3 receiver behind Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling.
Additionally, the Packers have opted not to tender restricted free agent safety Kentrell Brice, tweets Ryan Wood of PackersNews.com, who notes Brice became obsolete after Green Bay signed fellow defensive back Adrian Amos.
