Packers are not expected to pick up the 5th year option of LB Nick Perry

nick perryRob Demovsky of ESPN is reporting that the Green Packers are not expected to pick up OLB Nick Perry‘s fifth-year option in the coming weeks. The deadline to exercise 2016 options is Sunday.

The option year would cost the Packers $7.75 million to keep Perry under contract for 2016, and it would be guaranteed for injury immediately. Without it, Perry, the 28th overall pick in 2012, would become a free agent after this season.


All first-round picks taken in 2011 or later signed four-year deals with a club option for a fifth year. It was a provision added to the collective bargaining agreement following the lockout after the 2010 season.
