GREEN BAY, WI (LEARFIELD-WSAU) Safety Chris Banjo will stay with the Green Bay Packers. He signed a one-year exclusive rights' tender offer yesterday reportedly worth 570-thousand-dollars.
Banjo tweeted that it was his birthday, and there was no better way to spend it than to sign with the Pack. N-F-L players can only sign with their current teams for at least their first three years. If their deals expire then, they can become restricted free agents.
Banjo was among three undrafted rookies to make the Green Bay roster a year ago. He was second on the Packers with 10 special teams' tackles. On defense, Banjo had 15 tackles and a pass breakup in his first year.
Also yesterday, the Packers confirmed the signing of running back Michael Hill. It was first reported in the media nine days ago.
