The #Packers have officially reduced DE Johnny Jolly's salary to $715,000, knocking $1.8 million off the cap and putting them at $18M under.


Good to see, that means he'll get the shot for sure.

Clearly unaware that White got the largest contract for a defensive player in NFL history.

Hopefully prison didn't make him any less mean, which is really the shot in the arm that the defense needs. I mean, even if he doesn't make the final roster, just playing next to a mean SOB like Jolly could rub off on some of the other guys in a positive way.

Because prison makes you docile. Don't let the name fool you.

I know he has been out of the game for A LONG time, I just remember how great of a player he was for us when he was able to play. If he comes into camp in shape and I know that is a big if, could anyone see our base D-Line being Jolly, Raji and Pickett again?

He was our best run defender several years ago. If he returned to that form, which I highly doubt will happen, it would represent a big boost to our run defense.

I just don't see how it would be responsible for this staff to act under the assumption that he can play even remotely as well as he did prior to the prison time.

It's not, but the offseason roster is 90 people, and he costs nothing unless he actually earns a roster spot. If it's not going to be a locker room problem, then why not bring him to camp?

Would be great to see him make the team but the odds aren't good

How long has he been out of prison now for? I understand he hasn't played a game in a long time but there's no reason for him not to work his butt off to improve his conditioning/strength etc for when he finally gets his chance

if he can be as good as he was prior to suspension than he will immediately be our 2nd best DL (right in front of Pickett)... that would be a huge bonus

if hes not as good, then the packers will be no worse than what they have been the last 2 years

its a low risk high reward now that he restructured his previous deal... & im all in on jolly

fresh legs & motivation can do wonders for an NFL player

Where did I say that?

If he's ours, give him a fair shake. Definitely.

I'm just saying when April rolls around, the management will act under the impression that Jolly isn't a part of the picture, and that's a prudent mindset to have. That's all I'm saying.

Very happy about this. Jolly deserves a chance because he was just turning into a stud for us. He's depth he didn't have and that's always good.

[British accent:] I say! Damned sporting of Clay Matthews the Third to offer a 'Well done!' to Mr. Cutler at the end of that play." [/British accent]
