Corner Kevin King stays with the Green Bay Packers after a one-year deal worth $ 6 million.
King’s agent Chad Speck approved the deal on Tuesday. ESPN և NFL Network first announced the deal.
The move allows the Packers to retain both their starting corners last season and the rest of the Pro Bowl’s Jaire Alexander.
King, who turns 26 on May 5, has made 36 և 25 starts in his four-year career over the last two seasons. The Packers drafted him in the second round in the 2017 general election in the 33rd general election.
He played tough on the Packers’ 31-26 NFC Championship game against Tampa Bay. King seemed to be covering a pass from Tampa Bay’s two contacts, including Scott Miller’s 39 yards, with one second left in the first half. At the end of the fourth quarter, King was called in for a transfer interference penalty that helped the Bucs run the clock.
But since coming to Green Bay, he has been a steady investor in Packers’s secondary education. The packers faced a noticeable lack of angular depth beyond Alexander if they allowed King to leave.
King won 57 tournaments, starting all 11 regular-season games he played in last season, although he missed five games due to a quadriceps injury. He did not have wiretaps last year, but in 2019 he chose five passes.
King’s decision means that the Packers will refrain from leaving their two main free agents. Shortly before the free agency period began, the Packers reached an agreement with the Pro Bowl to push back Aaron ounce’s four-year, $ 48 million deal, which includes a $ 13 million sign-up bonus.
No deal has been officially announced.
The Packers lost All-Pro center Corey Linsley, who joined the Los Angeles Chargers on a five-year deal, averaging $ 12.5 million per season. The move reunited him with the insulting Brian Bulaga, who left the Packer for Chargers a year ago through a free agency.
