This morning, Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst announced that the team has signed offensive lineman Lucas Patrick to an extension. NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport tweets that it’s a two-year deal worth $3.6MM. The guard will receive a $350K signing bonus.
The lineman has come a long way since going undrafted out of Duke in 2016. Patrick spent his rookie campaign on Green Bay’s practice squad before becoming a rotational lineman in 2017. He re-signed with the team the following offseason, and he proceeded to appear in 14 games (two starts) in 2018.
Patrick has appeared in 13 games this season for the Packers. The 26-year-old has primarily served as a backup center and backup offensive guard.
