Who are the Green Bay Packers’ three most underpaid players entering the 2019 season?
A lot is made of players given big contracts in the NFL, and teams that overpaid. But there are also players who have signed deals way below what they could, and should, have been given. The Green Bay Packers make it a priority to re-sign their star players early, which often results in a much more favorable deal for the team in the long run.
As training camp gets underway for the Packers and the 2019 season nears, we’ll look at three players for Green Bay who should’ve got bigger deals. Of course, the Packers will be pleased with these contracts.
Let’s first take a look at an honorable mention: Davante Adams. Despite breaking out as one of the league’s very best at the wide receiver position in recent years, Adams’ average salary is actually much lower than many might expect.
According to Over The Cap, his average salary ranks 10th among wide receivers, below Jarvis Landry, Sammy Watkins and Brandin Cooks. They are all great players, but Adams would be my choice of the four, and it’s not even close.
